Eye Gouging, Crotch Poking, Parenting.

If you don't have kids this post might weird you out a little bit because, well, you might not be familiar with the peculiar intimacy of parenthood. But, you don't need kids to laugh at us idiots who have them and are perpetually creeped out by how weird are our own offspring. I used to…

Brains a Crackin’

It's hot out today. My toddler is naked and filling his watermelon shaped pool with ice cold hose water. I love him. I love the way his dirty blonde hair curls around his hat and the way he walks with purpose when he is going for the "aqua" (water in Italian). I love how he…

You’re Gonna Be Great! E2: Talking With Your Kids About Anxiety and Isolation

Hey everyone! So as you might have read on my last post, I launched a very random podcast mini-series about self-care in the time of COVID-19. I had questions I wanted answered and I wanted to help others if I could, so viola. I'm no podcast master (shocking, I know) but I think the information…
