I Believe Meghan

I don’t need to watch the Harry + Meghan interview to understand some of the reactions I’ve seen online (although I plan on it). “I never liked Meghan.” Oh really? You have that strong of an opinion on (checks notes) her cable television show Suits? “Diana was sweet, Meghan is manipulative.” Hmm wonder where thatContinue reading “I Believe Meghan”

Introducing Your Kids to Hanukkah

A few years ago I was in a grocery store and realized there was no section for Passover. Aisles and aisles dedicated to Easter, but no Passover. It’s something I had become sensitive to since moving down south; the assumption that everyone is Christian. And, in their defense, most are where I live. I grewContinue reading “Introducing Your Kids to Hanukkah”

Be Careful What You Tweet

My motto for raising children is simple: Don’t raise assholes. I guess you could say my parenting philosophy is, “raise child who are caring, race-conscious problem solvers who understand that inequality hurts us all and are willing to put their comfort aside to help others in the pursuit of actual liberty and justice for all.”Continue reading “Be Careful What You Tweet”

My Little Vegetarian

I knew this day would come. The day when my seven-year-old, V, asked that daunting question. No, it wasn’t, “Is Santa real?” We went through that a few months ago when the practical elements of one man delivering presents all over the world didn’t make sense to my very practical child. No it wasn’t even,Continue reading “My Little Vegetarian”

Friday Fashun

I’m going on my first “homeschool mommy hangout” this morning at the playground for a socially distant meet up with a likeminded mama and her 2 girls because my kids really need other tiny humans to stare at besides their brother. It’s finally Fall in Texas (thrilled). I would describe my fashion style as “cocoon”Continue reading “Friday Fashun”

Oh Mother (Denim)

This morning we went to the park in the wealthy town nextdoor…you know, the town where there are multiple Tesla charging stations and white collar crimes aplenty on the City Council (scandalous!) I decided to up my playground game a tad and finally test drive my Mother Denim (no charging required). I have been wearingContinue reading “Oh Mother (Denim)”

Pandemic Halloween with Kids

I’m going to level with you…I hate Halloween. I mean, I like it in theory – the costumes, décor (hold the scary movies), candy obviously…but the actual practice of going door to door asking for candy, no thanks. It’s creepy. We spend 364 days avoiding the doorbell, hanging “no soliciting signs” except for this oneContinue reading “Pandemic Halloween with Kids”

Post-Debate Emotional Hangover

There are days like today where I wake up with a splitting headache and dread in the pit of my stomach over the world I’ve brought my children into. This country specifically. But then we’re in the car in New Mexico driving by a trailer park which leads to a convo about housing and SectionContinue reading “Post-Debate Emotional Hangover”
