People who equate truth with fact are missing the point.

I got yer bad mom award right here…

I love to read mommy blogs. Not in any pejorative sense, either (NY Times article and the ensuing controversey notwithstanding); I honestly love them. Mommy bloggers have given me most of the laughs that made me pee a little in the past 5 years. Contrary to the beliefs of the uninitiated, these bloggers aren’t . . . → Read More: I got yer bad mom award right here…

And sometimes, I get ahead of myself.

Last night, I decided to delete that last post because, really? It’s nothing but a rant that displays the bitterness and despondency that occasionally get the best of me. Today, I decided to leave it there because it expresses something about my inner workings that I don’t want to deny or hide.

To scream into a different vacuum…

I have been wanting to write about health care reform for several months, but I haven’t been able to do it. I still don’t think I can do it, but I suppose it’s worth a stab.

I spent a week in the hospital undergoing a variety of tests to rule . . . → Read More: The Lessons My Bullies Taught Me

A glowing, positive, proud mom post

Two events this week reminded me how fun it can be to parent. The first was Tuesday evening when Brian went to our first parent/teacher conference at Carter’s new school. (I didn’t go because I had another appointment.) Brian was beside himself after the conference, but not for the usual way. The teachers couldn’t . . . → Read More: A glowing, positive, proud mom post

To scream into a vacuum…

Several years ago, I had a hysterectomy because I was crippled with pain from endometriosis. Not a fun thing, surgery, but I was looking forward to healing and getting a chance to go back to my life without, you know, constant agony.

When I woke from surgery, I was in blinding pain. I begged . . . → Read More: To scream into a vacuum…
