Indy Bad Moms House Party

  Am I bad mom? Are we collectively bad moms? My kids eat Mac n Cheese, cheap hot dogs, and sugary cereal. They all had formula (the generic kind), and 2/3 were in child care at 8 weeks. The third came to work with me at 3 weeks because…well, it’s not really anyone else’s business, […]

Beauty + Grace: Local Luxury Clothing

As a mom, it can be hard to spend money on yourself: especially on clothing. Sometimes it’s just easier to grab a pair of leggings at Target and a t-shirt that may or may not fit on your way through the store. After having three kids, through struggling to lose the baby weight, I know […]

Work Saved My Mental Health

“You’re a machine- everyone was like, ‘she just had a baby- why is she at work?!’ “ That was me. I went back to work two weeks after having my third baby. I know, I know. It was crazy. And “poor me”, right?! Like…who does that. Who goes back TWO WEEKS after having a baby?! […]

The Spirits of Indy Past

My husband and I have decided we just can’t afford our house anymore. I don’t meant that to be like, “Poor us, we have no money,” but you need to know that because that’s how this journey starts. The journey that took us to just one of what are probably many haunted Indianapolis stories. While […]

Motherhood Made Me Better At…

I think there’s this general perception that, like Pam said, “motherhood makes you so soft.” And in some ways it’s true. I’m not a big movie-cryer, but any commercial involving a baby? Tears.
