The weekly ramble: where I blog like it’s 2004.


Ever have one of those weeks when you can’t really do much right? And your sin kind looks you straight in the eye and wins the stare down? It was one of those weeks. I failed in so many areas, I think I’ve lost count.

  • My girls are super cute making their Babycinos.
  • The questionable shadows on my mammogram are benign cysts.
  • Bank of America’s fraud department caught a $2700 transaction that we DID NOT make and called us. Some wicked person got away with it, though.

Be sure to let me know what stories and articles are helpful to you and what you’d like to see more of in the coming weeks. I want to make your “life as MOM” as fun and as easy as possible.

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
