Day 3 of 30. I don't think it's an accident that Judy keeps following me around. Facebook, Instagram, she's a persistent little thing. This butch orange tub deserves its very own jingle. While I think naming a survival kit Judy is slightly "off brand" unless it's filled with quaaludes, back... Continue reading

Hundreds of books have been written about babies, toddlers and sleep. You may even own one, or seven of them. You may have been asked to read one by your partner at two in the morning, when you thought you were being extra helpful by suggesting a transition into the... Continue reading

Callum knew he wanted to be a leopard for halloween six months before "candy day" was officially here. It wasn't until the day of that he decided that we also needed to dress up to Trick or Treat with him. Last year, he barely made it down the block, his... Continue reading

I've been a parent to Callum for two and a half years now. In dog years, that would mean he's around 25. A 25-year-old dog that picked up a piece of chocolate he found in the sand under a slide yesterday and ate it. As each day comes and goes,... Continue reading

I'm not a complainer. Seriously, I'm not that person you'll see raging in line at the DMV, demanding to speak with the manager, acting like a complete entitled and ungrateful lunactic in public or in private, for that matter. I'm the person you want to get into a fender bender... Continue reading

Caught up on my Naked and Afraid viewing the other night. I sat on the couch, wearing actual pants not woven from a banana leaf tree, and ate a savory slice of my homemade Boboli pizza. I won't lie to you. I quickly found myself longing for a side of... Continue reading

I'm in 17C today. No first class upgrade for me. This means I will not be getting my breakfast serving of dehydrated eggs, with a side of exploding yogurt. Have you been a victim of first class exploding yogurt? Not sure if its the pressure or what, but no matter... Continue reading

Holy fu**ing buckleberries! The royal baby is here! The royal baby is here! I wonder how The Dutchess feels about the fact that her vagina is currently trending on twitter?

It's no secret to the three of you who read this blog that Y & I love to watch bad TV. Especially when we're completely brain dead, sleep deprived or enjoying our (summer) cocktail of choice: St Germain w/ Blood Orange San Pellegrino and a squeeze o' lime. I think... Continue reading

When I was 17, I moved from Teaneck, New Jersey to 1600 Grand Avenue in St Paul to attend Macalester College. That was 17 years ago and I’m still here. Long gone are the keg stands and the booze fueled nights streaking across the big lawn. But there are still... Continue reading

Jodie Jodie Jodie. I love Jodie Foster. I always have, always will. From the moment I saw her in Stealing Home, and the twenty or so times I've watched it since, I knew she was like me. I have always known (or, hoped or suspected, rather) that she was gay.... Continue reading

thanks ashley! very kind of you. if i wasn't sleep deprived, I'd have more to say on this topic. sleep is a very tricky one and we haven't mastered the ability to get our little one to stay asleep yet without being attached to us. will let you know when we decide to leave him in his playpen to cry it out, while the moms enjoy a gin & tonic.

Dressing an infant is harder than putting reindeer antlers on a cat. How hard can it be, really? All of these clothes are so tiny and cute and irresistible. I bet he can't wait to wear those mini corduroy pants, the holiday suspenders, the button down plaid shirt with ones-ie... Continue reading
