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, […]

The Physicality of Motherhood | A Great Contradiction

My entire body hurts tonight. Aches deep down to the bones. I am tired. I am sore. Even my skin hurts. I have just reminded my five-year-old daughter again to please not jump on mommy. Please don’t climb on mommy. And it is in this plea that I am reminded that I was not prepared […]
