Jesus Didn't Parent Toddlers: A Love Letter to the Parents of Littles

Parents of Preschoolers and Toddlers, this season is the real deal, isn't it?  You are in the t-r-e-n-c-h-e-s. When my guys were preschoolers, I had to have them out the door by 9:00am, or the house would surely crumble around us.  I was sure of it, and my theory was fairly proven. And now, this […]

The Very Definition

  Looking through some old journals tonight, I found this dialogue from four-year-old Tucker: "Mommy, let's make a train. Tyler will be the engine and I'll be the caboose. You be the track." I wrote: That feels like the very definition of motherhood. All my love to of you "train tracks" out there. I raise […]

"Mom, I have nothing to read."

"Mom, I have nothing to read." "Sure you do. There's a whole bookshelf in the hallway. And three in the living room." "Nope. Nothing to read." "In this house? You have nothing to read in this house?" "Nothing." "Dude. How about Let's Pretend We're Normal?" It's my second book. We lovingly call her "Peggy." For […]

100 Huntley Street: My Entrance Into Live TV

I’d venture to say that not every television anchor is willing to share the makeup room with the random and ever-changing “guest on today’s show.”  It’s kind of an intimate space, that room of transformation.  But Moira Brown is not just every television anchor, and there we sat, side by side in the makeup chairs […]

Maybe It Wasn't Writer's Block

Last week, shortly after the UPS man delivered my copies of Let's Pretend We're Normal, my writing mind stopped working.

Lunchables, Goldfish Marriages, and Where The Red Fern Grows

“Mommy, did you know someone can die of a broken heart?” “I do know.” I very nearly have. I don't often get to be the one to decide when and where we will have these memorable conversations, and they most often emerge at stoplights, in public bathrooms, or in the frozen foods section. For this […]

Let's Get This 'Baby' Ready for the World

Books are like babies.  Hard to wait for, lots of work, and you can only hope it's not ugly. All the growing, planning, waiting. All the long hours and late nights. All the early excitement, then the "what were we thinking?" and then the fear that everyone else knows what they're doing and you're actually […]

I […]
