Kids & Haircuts: The Long and Short of It

Have you ever taken your young child to get a haircut and left more frazzled than you arrived? You, my friend, are not alone. The process of getting a cut can be kryptonite over-stimulating to the little ones. It can also be mind numbing and nerve racking for the lucky grownup who gets to check this […]

Goodbye, Daylight Savings Time. You Jerk.

It’s fall, y’all! That magical time of year where the humidity goes back to a tolerable level. When scarves, chunky sweaters, and boots go back into closet rotation. Time for pumpkin spice everything! And of course, time to fall back an hour with the end of Daylight Savings time. On Sunday, we will “fall back” […]

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

Let me start by saying that my 4 year old is a good eater. (Necessary disclaimer: THIS IS NOT A SANCTIMOMMY BRAG FEST. Promise!) We know exactly how fortunate we are, believe me.  Obviously (he’s a human) he enjoys a good french fry and cheeseburger occasionally.  And he would gladly make meals solely of candy […]

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. A lot of times it’s all in good fun, […]

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. Quite frankly, I was terrified to mess up this parenting gig. I put so much pressure on myself to perfect Motherhood that I felt […]

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 […]
