5 Things Every Mom Should Be Doing

Before I was a mom, I would look at other people’s kids and think to myself “really, how hard can it be? Why are their mouths always covered in something?” Now, I joke with my mom friends that I’m THAT mom whose kid has a permanent smear of some sort: i.e: reminence of teething cracker […]

Screaming Teething Child Alert (…but this is really about my boobs.)

Tonight I could use a drink, a cigarette, and lots and lots of sex. Why? Because my 7-month-old is Teething.
