WAHM

Any other working-from-home moms out there? How have you been doing with balance? I find I can run myself ragged pretty quickly because I’m always doing something. There’s always something to clean, someone to change, a pile to fold, a family to feed. And that doesn’t even include any of…

Mayans Premiere: Mom’s Night Out

I’m currently sitting here munching on a snack before I get ready for the Mayans Premiere. My dad is a producer, but his girlfriend couldn’t make it tonight. So I offered to accompany him. These things are a lot more fun with a date. And my brother did the Mayans…

Tips for Escaping the DMV Unscathed

I have this theory that the DMV is really the tenth circle of hell. I have never gotten out of there in less than three hours. While I wait in those plush plastic chairs, I spend all of my time perseverating over the essential document list in my head, terrified…

Fill Yourself Up

Sometimes I wonder what it would feel like if the house was quiet during daylight hours. Can you imagine it? No screaming. No messes. Just you and a book, a meal, a favorite past-time. As much as I yearn for a few calm moments, I know I would miss the…

ASK JACQUE: Dogs, Toddlers, & Snacks

No Dogs Allowed My husband has wanted a dog for a few years now, and we discussed doing it after we had kids. We wanted to be able to travel a bunch and enjoy spending time with friends, without being worried about having an animal to take care of. Well,…

The Desitin Disaster

This morning’s Desitin Disaster reminded me of the Poopocalypse, and although it was less disgusting, it was infinitely more difficult to clean up. I can barely clean Desitin off of my hands after using it properly, but this morning’s debacle has left us smelling like Desitin, despite multiples baths and…
