It’s the First Day of Classes!

You found me!

I’m so glad you found me!!

We all know I require a lot of supervision.  

It was a big decision, but I decided to start a new blog.

Yes. This is the new blog.


What the hell are you doing Deni?  

Here are my top ten reasons. . .

Just kidding.  

I won’t pull that crap in my very first post.  

I started my much beloved blog The Diary of a Reluctant Mother to document my funny adventures in parenting.  I’ve had a blast with this blog for the past 20 months or so.  However, I started to realize perhaps I had pigeon-holed myself a little by just focusing on parenting.

For one thing, sooner or later, I’m going to have to start respecting the Kid’s privacy – which means I’m not going to be able to post Friday Funnies that relate to where he’s putting his penis this week.

Also, I have a bevy of funny content that I’d love to write about. . .but it just never felt appropriate to post it on my “Mommy Blog.”

So I’m branching out with Den State.

The concept here is we all have a lot of learning to do in life and I’ve created Den State to make sure you get the least expensive and least functional life long education possible.  Here, I can make your world a little funnier with tales of my delusion and misery in all aspects of  life – past and present!  (Your anticipation is palpable.  I can FEEL it!)

You’ll notice there are a lot more tabs at the top of this blog.  These are your courses.  The Diary of a Reluctant Mother will remain the required reading you’ve all come to know and love.  However, now you can check out a host of electives as well!

Read about my crafting clamities in the “Not So Fine Arts” tab.  Check out my domestic adventures in the HomeEckWreck course.  Check out my non-parenting related misadventures in the Extra Curricular tab.  We might be adding new courses to the curriculum.  Who knows?  We are dedicated to a “liberal arts” education here at Den State.

Will there be a Phys Ed course?  Bah-hahaha!

Will there be a Phys Ed course? Bah-hahaha!


The original content from The Diary of A Reluctant Mother will move to its new home here shortly.  In the meantime, you have a little HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT:

PLEASE  make sure you subscribe or follow this new blog.  If you were following The Diary of a Reluctant Mother via email, you will need to re-subscribe to this blog.  (It’s a bit of a pain but hey, it’s not like I’m asking you to write a 3000 word essay discussing the history of Christianity for the past 600 years or something.)

My Twitter handle and Pinterest pages haven’t changed.

DO IT NOW!  Click that subscribe or follow button.  NEVER put off a homework assignment!

The content on this blog will be updated very regularly, just as you had come to expect from The Diary of a Reluctant Mother so no skipping class umkay?

Thanks for stopping by! XOXO
