Maniacs, Mindfulness, And A Roof Rack

A few weeks ago I emailed our Pediatrician because I was still concerned about the condition of Teddy’s skin.  If you recall, we switched up his formula and were using a prescription hydrocortisone cream but he wasn’t making the sort of improvement I expected.

Reluctant Mother Loses More Than A Small Chunk Of Self

So, I’m getting to be “that age.” You know what I’m talking about, right?

What an Asshole. . .

I started writing a post for today about what I’m making Mac for his first birthday.  Instead, I’m just going to unload a bunch of guilt. BAM! I never really cared whether I had kids. I suppose in some imaginary “perfect world/life” there were cute little Baby Gap sporting children who slept in nurseries outfitted by Serena & Lily and
