"And one day, when my daughter is assembling my high-tech-state-of-the-art-mobile-pimp-chair, as she adjusts my fashion-forward, wine-dispensing helmet ever so gently on my head, taking me with her on her daily excursions whether she has an errand to run or just so I can get out of the house, I want to remind her not of the vegetables she threw at the wall or how she broke her curfew, but of jelly shoes, and all those delicious little hugs she gave during the stages that passed too fast."
Stopping to appreciate the stage you are in, packing away things outgrown, and not worrying what's around the corner.

Hi everyone, I'm on Scary Mommy today in honor of National Breastfeeding Week! It's a funny one, but true!
I knew breastfeeding would be tricky, but felt reassured when the nurse at the hospital told me there was a “lactation hotline” for me to use as a resource.

I'm up on +Scary Mommy today talking about 9 Things You Just Can't Do While Pregnant. Come say hiiii!

Oh yes, there's a big fat ugly side where taffeta and silk dare not venture. Can you relate?
If you're planning a wedding you'll likely encounter some of the obstacles that are inevitable along the way. But at least now you can enter the race with some training under your belt. I'll be on the sidelines, cheering you on....

"There’s 'grammar police', and then there’s 'grammar police for immigrant parents'. While the former gets generic training, the latter is a rough-and-tumble street team where no rules apply. It’s like Ultimate Fighting for linguistics. They’ve SEEN things."
Life lessons found through catchphrases of our immigrant parents.
