Facebook Battles

As you may or may not be aware, I got into a little Facebook Battle the other day with a follower of my page. It was over an article I posted about a super-fan of Taylor Swift (maybe it was this follower) who posted a photo of the celebrity on Twitter (a rather bad one, … Continue reading Facebook Battles

Trump Might Be Just What the Women's Movement Needed

Trump Might Be Just What the Women’s Movement Needed

Hold off on the hate email for just a moment. As vile as that statement is (and I know, I wrote it), it seems to me an unfortunate truth. But a statement of conviction shouldn’t be mistaken for an indication of approval. Nothing has made me more disheartened and concerned for both my country and … Continue reading Trump Might Be Just What the Women’s Movement Needed

My feelings on God, Jesus and followers of Christ or any religion.

Just to Clarify About Jesus

Last week on Facebook I posted what I thought was a somewhat funny and rather benign comment. If you missed it here's what I said: "A woman who just started following me on Twitter has a bio that reads: Christ follower/ Wife/ Mom/ Dr. of Psychology/ Blogger of joy, life and parenting. That is the exact bio … Continue reading Just to Clarify About Jesus

One Woman’s Run to D.C. Women’s March Sparks a Domino Effect of Activism

I know I've been under the radar for a while. Did you think I ghosted you? I would never do that to you. I've just been caught up with the book. You know how it goes. I might have exciting news on that front soon, but I don't want to jinx it so enough about … Continue reading One Woman’s Run to D.C. Women’s March Sparks a Domino Effect of Activism

A Few Thoughts on the Brock Turner Rape Case, Ben Roethlisberger & The Bachelorette

The Brock Turner rape case and The Bachelorette are connected however bizarre that may seem. And it does seem rather bizarre. I don't like to get political here. I really don't, but the political is personal, and so I find myself needing to speak. Actually, I said it all on Facebook last week, and a good … Continue reading A Few Thoughts on the Brock Turner Rape Case, Ben Roethlisberger & The Bachelorette

Push Presents given by husbands after childbirth are stupid. Yes, they are. Here's why. On @OneFunnyMotha

Push Presents Are Stupid

Even the name is stupid. I don’t like saying the words, and I shouldn’t have to because they shouldn’t even exist. Every time I write those words, I want to put quotation marks around them to indicate I don’t agree with this contrived term, but I’m being forced against my will to acknowledge it. I’m … Continue reading Push Presents Are Stupid

Vaginal weightlifting: Just Say No. By @OneFunnyMotha

Just Say No to Vaginal Weightlifting

I tried to ignore this when I first saw it come across my Facebook feed, but it seems I am unable. I need to weigh-in on the subject of vaginal weightlifting. As with so, so many other things brought to us by the internet to which we need to just say no like naked yoga … Continue reading Just Say No to Vaginal Weightlifting

Divine Messages

I'm not a religious person. But I believe in signs. Sent from God, a higher power, Allah, call it what you will. It's all the same to me. Sometimes when I'm feeling lost I find messages meant, I believe, to keep me headed on the right path. They come when I'm desperate, unsure of what I'm doing, questioning my decisions, … Continue reading Divine Messages

I’m Gonna Say It Push Presents Are Stupid

I can't even hold back on this one. The fact that this is even a thing irritates me. Perhaps what irritates me the most is the name. It's juvenile and belittling. Do people know what goes into creating and raising a human child? It's not something a pair of diamond earrings can equal. While I certainly … Continue reading I’m Gonna Say It Push Presents Are Stupid
