How to Survive Football Season When You’re Not a Fan

I don’t like football. There, I said it.  I’m a southern girl, married to a southern boy, and I have absolutely no interest in watching football. Not college, not pro, not even pee-wee.  I just don’t get it… the downs, the flags, the yards, and don’t even get me started on that yellow line that you […]

Is There a Box-Top on This?

Fall of 2015 I was a fresh faced (except for the ever flowing tears) mom of a shiny, new kindergartner.  We were both excited for his first year of school!  He was excited for new friends, a big playground to visit everyday, and getting chocolate milk, again, everyday.  I was excited for him making new […]

Inventing Weird and Unique Ways to Eat a Cupcake

Sorry, I’m Not Sorry for these Mama Moments

Confession: I typically cannot stand the “sorry, not sorry” hashtags and status updates I see on social media with this pithy little status disclaimer. Honestly, it drives me nuts. Maybe I’m alone, but I think they tend to imply an arrogant attitude which I don’t feel social networks need anymore of.

Confessions of a Retired Perfectionist

From the instant I found out I was pregnant, I devoted an embarrassingly huge chunk of time looking for how to do things “The Right Way.” I wanted to be the BESTEST-MOST-FUNNEST-AWESOME-MOM EVER.

15 Reasons Mom Deserves a Wineout (also, GIFs!)

There are times in every mom’s day (working mom, stay-at-home mom, work-from-home mom, single mom, veteran mom…) when she needs a “wineout.” What’s a “wineout?” It’s exactly what it sounds like: a timeout. With wine. We don’t know if y’all have heard (which would be shocking), but Tennessee has finally decided to allow the sale […]

How [Not] to Communicate with Your Daughter

We have all heard the cutesy names that mom-society has deemed fit for little kids with attitudes: terrible twos, threenager, fourmonal… Then children grow older and the names stop. An Instagram picture of an enraged child and #7YearOldMadAboutBeingGroundedFromtheiPad would not warrant the same reaction as a 3-year-old making the exact same same face with #threenager attached […]
