Seventy years ago in 1946, Ferris and Margaret Romaire were married. As high school sweethearts on a zero-budget, they didn’t have the opportunity to have their wedding photos taken. To prove that it’s never too late to do -well, anything, really- they decided to change […]
Is there really anything better than summer? Even when you’re an adult and don’t get summers off, summer is still the best because it means no stress of school, no homework, free(ish) schedules, trips to the beach, and sun-kissed legs (because, let’s face it, these […]
Bonding with teenage girls. You guys, it’s as hard as everyone told me it was going to be and then some. I don’t know what it is about the mother-daughter relationship that makes it so difficult sometimes to see eye-to-eye, but I genuinely do believe […]

Happy Mother’s Day, Mommas!
I know it has been a bit since we have connected so I wanted to take a moment to explain our brief hiatus. Recently, I lost two very dear friends to me.

If you have a teenager or a preteen, chances are you’ve heard about 13 Reasons Why and your kids are hounding you to watch it. If you haven’t heard about it, chances are, they’ve already watched it. It’s what’s going on right now, so that’s just the reality. If you’re asking the question, “Should I let my kid watch 13 Reasons Why?” you should know that there is a LOT to consider.
It began as a book that gained popularity, especially after Netflix announced they would be turning it into a show. I never read it in advance but I skimmed the internet for the plot points and figured out pretty soon that this book/show showcases some pretty mature story lines. My initial reaction was just to say no to my daughter watching it. However, she’s fourteen, going into high school next year and she has access to our Netflix account. I don’t live in a bubble where I think me saying no means she’ll never be exposed to it. So, I decided to watch and help weed out some situations and also use some as conversation starters.
Here’s what you’ll want to know going in. And yes, there are spoilers ahead.
Look, I’m fine with admitting it. My refrigerator is chaos no matter what I do. I clean it out before I go food shopping and I desperately try to group like food items together in appropriate places around the refrigerator to create optimal efficiency and […]
There might not be anything on Earth that is as funny AND equally terrifying as mom rage. If you haven’t seen this wife’s reaction to her husband telling her that their son got a hold of the clippers and buzzed his own hair, you’re seriously missing out.
