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 Power of Motherhood: We Will Rise Above Silence

Power. Either Spider-Man or Voltaire (casual 18th Century French philosopher reference) said, “With great power comes great responsibility.” (And, actually, it wasn’t Spider-Man, it was Uncle Ben).  Unfortunately, being powerful and popular can be two different things.

A few months ago I walked into Meijer with my youngest, MJ. She was comfortably nursing in my ring sling and I was focused on my shopping. As I walked toward the carts an older black woman stopped me and asked: “Do you think she should be eating all out like that?” She wasn’t disrespectful […]
