It’s been a while since I’ve had anything to say. And who knows when I’ll be inspired again. I’m published over at BLUNTmoms. So, go get your My Ball of Wax fix!

With Hurricane Irma recently devastating a large portion of the Caribbean and parts of Florida, it’s easy to view the catastrophic pictures safely from your unaffected area and empathize with those who lost everything. It’s also easy to say things like, “Your house is just a house” or “Lives are more important than things”. So,… Continue reading Maybe It Really Is Just a House
Is it just me, or is everyone angry about something? I’m not talking about being slightly offended by everything. I’m talking about full-blown, almost manic, anger. Obviously, United States politics is the most common source of this universal fury, but it also exists on less serious platforms. Take blogging, for instance. Recently, I’ve read… Continue reading Anger Has Us All By the Balls

My Sunday morning routine always starts with coffee on my back patio. Because of the consistency of Florida weather, this is a ritual I enjoy year round. However, this past Sunday, as I stared into the abyss of palm trees obstructing my view of the sky, I started thinking about the relativity of beauty.… Continue reading Stuck in Paradise
Not all of us are lucky enough to have someone in our lives who makes the transition from mother to mommy. Regardless of how many hours of labor you went through, or whether or not you chose natural childbirth over the epidural, becoming a mother by giving birth to a child is the easy part.… Continue reading Being a Mommy
“Don’t forget to take care of yourself” is one of my favorite pieces of parenting advice given by other parents. The unexpected life that unfolds before you as a parent can be overwhelming, so every once in a while, it’s important to focus on your own wellness. However, I can’t help but laugh at… Continue reading Beyond Type 1
Families can be messy. With a quick swipe of a paper towel, some messes can be cleaned up easily. While other messes saturate the fabric of our lives, leaving a gruesome blemish on an otherwise gorgeous canvas. I have been privy to both types of messes. Neither is ideal, but if I had to… Continue reading The Messes We Make
Being new to the forties club, I’m still unsure about what is supposed to happen at this age. I thought it might have something to do with boldly owning everything about yourself in an “I-am-woman-hear-me-roar” sort of way. But now that I am here, a feeling of unease is quietly nagging at me. Because… Continue reading Am I Really Done With Children?
