Recently James Corden went on his show and addressed fat shaming. It hit really close to home. Here, take a gander at his monologue. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ax1U04c4gaw There is not a time in my life I can remember not being conditioned to be...
The first time I thought about suicide, I was in 7th grade. At the time, I had transitioned to a new school and didn’t have any friends. 7th grade is a tough year. As an aside, moms, check on...

Separation AND Anxiety

Before I became a mom, I always had preconceived notions about moms, babies, and maternal relationships. When phrases such as "separation anxiety" arose, I had a general idea of the subject. Babies need their mom and it's natural given...
The day after I came home from the hospital with our first child, I lay in my bed crying uncontrollably, begging my mom to tell me how she could let us out of the house and let us out...
Dear My Thirties, First, let me just apologize. For my whole life leading up to this decade, I have been dreading this era. I vaguely remember a TV show called "Thirtysomething" that aired when I was younger, and I thought,...

Since our second child was a baby, my husband and I noticed unique quirks about his personality. We chalked it up to idiosyncrasies that were part of his overall character, but as he grew along with our understanding, we...
