And it really does make me feel bad to say that. I'm someone who didn't have a super great experience in public school for various reasons, and I decided looooooooong before having kids (like, when I was a teenager) that I would absolutely homeschool my future brood. Being a nanny for many, many years just … Continue reading Momfession: I’m super stoked school starts in less than three weeks
Because that's how many we always said we wanted. You know, back when we were totally full of shit and had no fucking clue what we were on about. And, like, we've always been kid people, so it's not like we had zero experience with them. Apparently when you asked little scruffy-looking nerfherder what he … Continue reading Omfg, I’m so glad we didn’t have four kids
MAH BITCHES! (Always a term of endearment, don't be alarmed, don't forget.) SO. Remember that one time I didn't post for over a week basically right after posting about how proud I was of myself for posting regularly? HAHA! I do, too! It's a very me thing to do. Now you know.

This is thanks to my awesome and amazing in-laws, who consistently go wayyyyyyyy above and beyond when it comes to, well, everything really, … Continue reading Just the two of us…
Holy shit, you guys. Today is our 10th anniversary. And I have so many things I want to say about it, I'm not even sure where to begin. Marriage, as you may very much be aware, is kind of a big deal. However, that isn't to say that committed relationships that don't involve marriage are … Continue reading Is this a kissing post?
I often discuss how The Barbarian and I straddle parenting philosophies and modi operandi, and how that leaves us feeling like we don't quite belong within any particular group of parents. And this becomes epically apparent whenever I get a wild hair up my ass to join some online parenting group, only lasting a few … Continue reading Progressive parenting and the obsession with privilege.
Something something long hiatus. And moving on. Late last night, The Barbarian and I were up watching some Rick and Morty (it's brilliant--watch it) when we heard the wee folk's door open. It had been several hours since they had gone to bed, and this is usually the point in the night when The Goblin … Continue reading Thoughts on cosleeping with preschoolers.
