Talking about race will not turn your child into a racist.
I don’t remember having conversations about race and diversity when I was a child. I had Black friends in school, my family had Black friends and neighbors. We were all the same. Right? People are different. We experience the world differently and the world experiences us differently. If you asked me what it was like …

Will our children be kind, capable of appropriate banter, and appreciative of treats? Or will they forget what to say, blurt out something awful, grab double fistfulls of candy, and flee the scene without so much as a thank you? It can go either way.
Trick or treat? Just how well will your kids do when faced with strangers, costume questions, and a bowl of candy? Halloween parenting tests us all!

It's time to accept the bodies we are in and learn to be fine. #podcast #bodyhate
What do you do when body hate happens? I have been large, plus sized, Amazon, etc for most of my adult life. My newest podcast is about being ok.

Seriously - how do people even do this?! #onlinedating  
In the past I have joked about how easy it was to navigate donor sperm websites because they seemed so much like online dating sites. HA HA HA. Nope.

It’s a beautiful and magical thing that happens around Thanksgiving, isn’t it? Friends and family open their homes and welcome us to family dinner. #familydinnerforward #givingtuesday.
This post represents a compensated editorial partnership with The Family Dinner Project. Narrative and commentary are my own. My family has been rescued by a family dinner. Multiple times and in multiple ways we have been saved by an invitation. I remember the neighbors in Florida who invited us over for Thanksgiving. They didn’t even …

Is Hammacher Schlemmer trying to get our attention? GOT IT!
The items within the pages of the Hammacher Schlemmer catalog have gotten more and more bizarre. I am worried this is a cry for help.
