I’m a #Qool Mom Too!

Only 4168 miles separated Atticus and I from the white sandy beaches of Lanikai this past May. A friend had offered us her buddy passes to see if we could find venues on the island of Oahu for a potential MommyCon date. The ideas of taking a business trip to Hawaii was one that no […]

Please Keep Talking About Breastfeeding

Please Keep Talking About Breastfeeding

A response to Can We Please Stop Talking About Breastfeeding  Please keep talking about breastfeeding. “I’m going to just get right down to it. Breastfeed, don’t breastfeed, but for heaven’s sake can we please stop talking about breastfeeding?” TJ Falletti writes. My answer, “no.” Absolutely not. Why? Because women need support. Women need to know that […]

#MommyConRoadtrip Blog Edition

The #MommyConRoadtrip took place in early June through the woods of Michigan, rural Ohio with stops in various small towns across the two states.

Mama Got Her Boobs Back

If you are family, stop reading immediately. Like, seriously. You might get grossed out. I don’t just say the word vagina, I talk about my boobs, and unless you want that image in your head, go read about Atticus or something cute about puppies here. Now that that is out of the way, let’s get […]

Resolute to Resolution

Resolute to Resolution

It seems like there is a common theme amongst the TMD writers… resolutions suck. Resolutions are for the uncool. Resolutions are for those that aren’t awesome. Resolutions just aren’t my style…. Until this year that is. Because I am exponentially cooler than the term “resolution,” I am going to create my own term for the […]
