Thank you, Daylight Saving Time

It’s that time of year again. The time when anarchy rules and moms across the United States curse the gods of time.  Daylight Saving Time, that is.  She washes in like a tidal wave every spring and fall. We forget she’s coming and what’s she’s capable of, until she’s on top of us, then washing out just […]

My Kids Have Rights, Too

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 […]

My Internet Friends Are Real

And they are amazing. In early November 2013 I nervously logged in to a popular parenting website, navigated my way to my birth month board and made my first post. I introduced myself, created a signature and hoped for the best. I did not expect to make sixty of my closest friends. It sounds a little […]

15 Ways We’ve Sucked As Moms This Week

Today, we’re doing something that we feel is necessary. It’s necessary, and cathartic, really. Today, the Memphis Moms Blog team is going to confession. But not with a priest, nor in a church, and there won’t be any Hail Marys said. This is strictly a just-between-moms sort of confession. Why? Because we aren’t perfect. None […]
