Walking home from the Mejuri showroom, I kept looking down at my hand. I’d done it! I finally bought myself a little diamond ring for my right hand—something I’d wanted to do since the early 2000s when I first heard about what a “right hand ring” even was. I’ve always loved what a right hand […]
The many faces of Miles.
Life with our sleepy bud.
I took my kid out for his first, real brunch date. I felt guilty and selfish, ’cause PANDEMIC, but for a fleeting moment, it was (I hate to say it) nice to be out again, doing something that used to be a regular, albeit luxurious, part of my pre-baby and pre-pandemic life. Of course, brunch […]
Honestly, it’s been a shitty day. I haven’t showered, my laundry’s piling up, nothing on my LONG to-do list is getting done, and you may not be able to tell, but I am covered in a fine layer of baby drool. There may also be baby poop under my one fingernail—I can’t be sure. This […]

By now, I feel like I’ve told this story about a thousand times. However, I promised a birth story, so you’re going to get one! I should preface this post by saying that I am going to get into some potentially TMI territory, but what’s the point of sharing a birth story if I don’t […]
As I pack what I hope are enough adult diapers, it occurs to me that I am packing for a journey with an outcome and a destination that I am totally unaware of. Hell, I don’t even know exactly when it’s going to start! **Decided to leave that intro, ’cause I like it. However, I […]
