Hilarious! (And thanks for making me feel less alone about walking into my kids' rooms and just bursting into tears.)

Parenting little girls. OY. This one will make you think, laugh, and nod. Bonus, you'll never be able to watch another movie or TV show again without thinking, "Does this pass the Bechdel Test?" So fascinating, and infuriating, and funny at the same time. How'd +Elizabeth Catalano  do that?! More good stuff via +In the Powder Room. We're on a roll!

This one by +Susan Maccarelli cracked me up today. (Probably because I totally relate.) 
 
I'm on one of my very favorite sites today: +In the Powder Room talking about my Old Lady Holes.  Read on if you don't believe me.

I bet there is a strong chance you have the same situation going on.

Do you or does someone you love suffer from OLL (Old Lady Lobes)? Susan puts it all in perspective.

As if I could love +Robyn Welling anymore than I already do. She nails this one about birthday parties at +NickMom.

You are way too modest, +Robyn Welling ! I recognize your brand of funny anywhere.

I just made these for my oldest son's HS Marching Band bake sale, and SWEET SASSY MOLASSY, they are INCREDIBLE. Like...can't. Stop. Eating. Them. 

So do yourself a favor and pin this for later because someday you are going to want to make these.

I LOVE this piece by +Meredith Spidel this week. It's a perfect example of why she has been selected to be a part of so many successful anthologies over the past year…or maybe I have that backwards, because the kind of positive attitude and grace this woman exudes (in addition to her fantastic writing) surely blesses every project she touches. 
Earlier this month, I got to hang out at our local library as part of their "Meet the Author" series to share my work in I Just Want to Pee Alone, I Just Want to Be Alone, and You Have Lipstick on ...

And I do love YOU, Kerry Rossow. I have loved this piece since this first time I read it, but to see you perform it (with your "white girl overbite" move!)…absolutely priceless. 
Story
Tagline
Writer, blogger, editor, speaker, gardener, borderline hoarder, and invisible vessel for grandchildren and PTA donations since 1999.
Introduction

Hi, I'm Leslie. I'm a wife, mother of three, bathroom humor aficionada, writer, and transplanted Pittsburgher trapped in the suburbs of Atlanta. After two years as the Editor-in-Chief for InThePowderRoom.com, an online community for women, I am now the site’s new owner and CEO and plan to become a media mogul as soon as I unearth my day planner. 

I blog for fun at The Bearded Iris: A Recalcitrant Wife and Mother Tells All and have been named an Erma Bombeck Writers’ Workshop Humorist of the Month, a BlogHer Humor Voice of the Year (2012 & 2013), and a Babble Top 100 Mom Blogger. I'm also the editor and co-author of the #1 Amazon top-rated and best-selling women’s humor anthology, “You Have Lipstick on Your Teeth.” 

I love animals, good manners, and laughing until it hurts. 


Bragging rights
I once repaired a broken washing machine with nothing but a YouTube video, a flashlight between my teeth, and a zip tie. True story.
