Best Friends Forever.

My daughter Elby’s best friend, Dylan, is moving away and I’m devastated for her. It’s really the worst thing that’s happened to her –besides me coming home from the hospital with twins. How does Elby feel about it? I don’t know because I haven’t told her. I have a sneaking suspicion she’ll take the news with a grain of salt and not sob for an hour straight and immediately up her Zoloft prescription like some people…me. more

Bachelor Backlash.

Hello ladies! Welcome to my most dramatic column ever! I’m so glad you decided to go on this journey with me. God, I could just kill myself every time Chris Harrison or anyone on <i>The Bachelor </i>says the word journey. My husband and I actually play a drinking game where every time any says: journey, amazing, intimate moment, spontaneous, adventurous, fairytale, rose or alone time you have to take a drink. more

In Defense of Princesses.

Someone recently commented to me from seeing a photo of my daughter opening a present on Christmas that it looked like a pink bomb had gone off in my house. They were referring to all the princess paraphernalia strewn around my living room. At first I felt ever so slightly defensive because I know some people get all up in arms about the whole princess issue. more

Angie, Say it Isn't So.

Hi again, how are the kids, how’s Brad, blah blah blah…ARE YOU HAVING ANOTHER BABY?? Oh my God. Are you insane, woman?? I know you may find this hard to believe but I am truly not stalking you. more

New Year’s Grieve.

I’d love to report to you what a fantastic time I had on New Year’s Eve. But I can’t. This New Year’s Eve I went to bed at nine p.m. and was fast asleep by eleven p.m. watching Tropic Thunder courtesy of Netflix since my husband and I can’t even leave the house to browse Blockbusters these days. more

The Politics of Presents.

So I’m at Target today doing a little Santa shopping for my four-year-old, Elby (luckily she’s not one of those super advanced four-year-olds you hear people brag about who can already read – otherwise I couldn’t even write this column) when it occurred to me that –horrors-I would have to buy gifts from Santa for my one-year-old twins as well. more

Ain’t Nothin’ But a G-tube Thing.

I think when you first have a baby, the common experience is to worry incessantly that something is wrong or could go wrong with your new little person whom you have no experience taking care of. more

Balance This!

My husband and I haven’t had sex in at least three weeks –to be honest it’s probably longer but I’ve lost track. I’m one of those moms, the ones you don’t hear as much about, the ones who have no ability to keep a balance in their life. more

Listen Up Trader Joe's.

So I guess by now we all know there’s a recession going on. You’d have to be living in a cave or maybe the White House to not know that Josie the Plumber here has to tighten up her wallet. more

Go Elby, It's Your Birthday!

Today is my daughter Elby’s fourth birthday. She has been residing outside of my womb on this planet for exactly four years. more
