I looked at the calendar today, and if it wasn’t for a Google repeated reminder my husband set years ago, it may not have been on my radar. It’s our 11 year anniversary this coming Saturday. I’m not sure if it’s because we’ve celebrated a few times over the course of the past few years … More I’m not where I thought I’d be 11 years into my marriage.
Both my husband and I work. Full time. Our kids are in daycare, preschool, and elementary school. They do before care and aftercare, as both of our jobs start early and end late. They do camps in the summer. They have extracurricular activities, weekend sports, rec sports, and play dates that we take them to … More Keeping it Real in a Two Working Parent World
I’m so sorry to the dads out there. I have talked about “mom guilt” and how palpable it is when we do certain things. Dropping the kids at daycare even when we have a day off. Spending time on my cell phone, scrolling Facebook and Instagram to catch up on the day’s news. But I … More Dad guilt is a thing, too.
So this is more of a question for the men. What the EFF do you DO in the bathroom??? It’s been a bone of contention between my husband and I for as long as I can remember. He tells me he has to use the bathroom. He usually goes in there with his phone. I don’t … More What do they actually DO in there?
Last night, my husband and I were watching Catfish on MTV (yes, we have guilty pleasures). While watching, the woman who was revealed was definitely NOT the woman in the original pictures that were presented to the guy who was “in love” with her. The girl was definitely bigger, and I immediately felt bad for … More Does this make me look fat?
Okay, so maybe not DREAD it per se, but I am definitely not super excited about it. I have seen recent articles about a vacation vs. a trip, especially when it comes to having kids with you. This will be our first vacation/trip for any extended period of time with all three kids. And I … More Is it okay to dread “vacation”??
How can you tell your significant other what you want without sounding like you are nagging? I mean, honestly, I don’t have a great answer for this. Relationships are tricky, even though you may feel as though they shouldn’t be. 10 years into my marriage, I feel like it’s still a balance. It’s not always … More What I wish my husband did more of
Dear husband, It’s been 10 years. Yes, I know! I can’t believe it either! We’ve been together for longer, although we often debate the actual amount of time (there is a dispute about when we were officially dating). It’s been a wild ride, and we’ve shared a lot of ups and downs. But lately, I … More An open letter to my husband in our 10th year of marriage
Yes, we split a lot. He cooks, I will clean. He does all of the outside yard work, I vacuum inside and keep things tidy indoors. I will often deal with the baby while he takes care of the older two. But there are times, more often lately than not, that I feel like the … More Why do I always have to be the parent?
I am just too fucking tired. I have had a long day (week, month, quarter) and I just can’t even think about taking my clothes off for more than getting into comfy clothes and passing out, face-down in my bed. I’m sorry, but it’s just NOT happening. I’ve reached the point of no return. We … More 8 reasons why I won’t have sex with you tonight.
