Today I stopped Calling Myself a Christian

“I’m Sorry,” is a blended emotion. This means that you have to feel two emotions simultaneously in order to produce the emotion we call, remorse.

Stop Calling Us A Mom Blog

Kidding, but not.
We are moms. The 7 kids between us prove that, and other stereotypes like my unwashed hair and affinity for booze in coffee mugs. But we would like to think that we are more than that, we are people with different experiences, and this blog is about highlighting all of the different things that make us, us.… READ THE REST

Why Good Girls Want Bad Boys

Ever wonder why you seem to constantly be in terrible relationship cycles that you should have seen coming like a Target Supercenter? Apparently, scientifically, you just can’t help it.

The Accidental Affair

I was 18 years old, attending Lansing Community College, and pretending to be a Spartan.

Playdate Pep Talks

I’d like to think we’ve all been there. In fact, we all go there on the regular. We park our cars and turn around to face the mini troops, then start doling out some variation of what can best be described as “The Playdate Pep Talk.”
Perfect children and parents aside, at any given time most kids, more specifically toddlers, are trying on some socially unacceptable behavior for size.… READ THE REST


I tend to be the friend my friends call when there is a relationship problem. I am certainly unqualified to be a therapist, but I have studied gender and communication for several years. Basically I know enough to be dangerous. Any of my friends will tell you, if you call me because you are having a hard time with your husband, and are certain you don’t love each other anymore, my response will always be the same; when is the last time you slept with him?… READ THE REST
