The Micro-Rebellion

I don't really like baths. By the time I reach a point of really wanting one, they usually feel like too much work. When the tub is finally filled, candle lit, and face mask procured, the moment has often passed for me. Also, I don't...

So Tired of Cleaning

My 11-month-old son doesn't use a pacifier anymore; he prefers to suck his thumb. I don't blame him, and nor am I surprised. I, myself, was a voracious thumb sucker. In fact, I loved it so much that at eight years old, I was threatened...

Becoming Unspecial

I didn't know it was the last time I would pump expressed milk. I didn't know it would be the last time I'd nurse my son. One was my decision and the other was his –– both were after the fact. It's not how I...

A week ago, we broke the seal. No, I'm not talking about giving into peeing during a night of drinking –– a term I distinctly remember learning in a gross bathroom at the SAE house during one of my first weeks at college. We popped...

A Letter To Myself

Dear 7 Months Postpartum You,   Life feels pretty surreal, huh? People keep referring to the “new normal,” but nothing has felt normal for a really long time. 2019 was anything but, kicking January off with a positive pregnancy test and ending with a 9pm bedtime on...

Your Job Posting Sucks

Somewhere along the line, employers forgot that hiring is a two-way street. At least, that’s what it seems like based on most of the job postings I read. Yes, I always read job postings all the way through, and most of them do a terrible...

Just The Essentials

It was yesterday. I wore a Hello Kitty face mask and had my ID, credit card, car key and hand sanitizer in my pockets. I performed a cautious and abbreviated version of my tried and true choreography around the store, stopping first for the biggest...

Social Media At Home

Before I had a child, I swore I would not become the parent who only posted photos of her baby. And, now look at me:     This is my life now. Just a bunch of pictures with the same two family members at home or outside (ok,...
