Dear M,

I’ve written quite a few blog posts writing “to my children”, which is ridiculous. They are 3 and one and can’t read. Plus by the time they can read, they will probably be like, “Blog? Whaaaa?

These Are My Secret-Public Confessions.

I was talking to a friend of mine lately, describing my day and all the chaos it entails and she said “I can’t wait to do all that, and be all motherly!”MOTHERLY?I can think of many words to describe myself, but “motherly” just sounds so…unnatural.  Like what exactly does being “motherly” entail?  Talking about poop […]
