When it comes to parenting, there are endless trials and triumphs that perfectly compare to personalities of Star Wars characters. I mean, raising a family is pretty much like running a Death Star in that some days you literally have only one mission to accomplish, but everyone else just keeps fucking it up for you. You have your good guy and bad guy moments, but at the end of the day, you would travel to the edge of the galaxy for them all. Continue reading

The Debate is Over: Having a Cat is Totes Like Having a Kid

People get super bent out of shape when you compare raising a child to owning a pet or vise a versa. But now having raised a cat and currently raising a toddler, I can say beyond a shadow of a doubt, it’s totally the same.

Nothing belongs on the table. I put my phone down, cat knocks it off. I put my drink down, kid knocks it off. Actually those statements are interchangeable. If anything is left on any surface in my house, both cat and kid agree, it belongs on the floor.  Continue reading

Although I’ve never considered myself an Apple fangirl, I started using iPhones as soon as they hit the market back in 2007. Completely enamored with the technology, my smart phone became my mini portable computer, camera, gaming device, and day planner.

If iTunes was a person, it would be Trump – I fucking loathe him and have no idea why everyone is a fan.  Continue reading

Some months ago when I was about 7 months prego and totally knew everything about how I was going to parent, I totally and wrongfully judge you, Mama.

I saw your little boy, trying so hard to tell you something that he obviously felt was very important and you paid no attention. You responded with generic “Uh-huh’s” and “Yup’s”. It seemed that you had no time for him. I remember passing you and thinking, “I won’t be that mom. I will always make sure my children feel special and know that what they have to say is important.” Mama, I judged you. I took a quick glance at your half empty cart, toting 3 small children and paying attention to none of them, and judge you.

I had no idea. Continue reading
