The One Where I Fear My Family

My phone began to violently vibrate, startling me out of my comatose state. I was staring at the TV, but wasn’t really watching it. I was defeated and weary after an arduous battle with Baby C over his afternoon nap. The display on my Android phone told me my father was calling. I didn’t really feel like … Continue reading

That’s My Girl!!!

Whenever my daughter hears, or sees, something new, she gets a particular look on her face. It’s half confusion (because she doesn’t know what she just heard or saw) and half excitement (at discovering something new). Since she’s at an age where most things are still new to her, she gets her “new thing” look … Continue reading

You Won’t Like Me When I’m Angry

I realize that this will be my third post today and that is completely abnormal for me, but I need to unload. I know I’m stressing the belt around your email account’s waste, but I don’t care. As most of you deduced from a poem I published last week, Superbitch moved out. Despite both of our … Continue reading

Virtual Bitch Slap: Boomer Esiason

I’m pissed off, man. So pissed off, in fact, that I’ll be handing out the second ever Virtual Bitch Slap here on Stuphblog. So, I’m a Cincinnati Bengals fan, as most of you know. Any of you that are NFL fans know that Boomer Esiason was one of the best quarterbacks in Bengals’ history. He … Continue reading

When I Was 21

The very gifted and wonderful Elyse published a thought-provoking (as usual) piece the other day about dreams and aspirations at the age of 21. This was prompted by her friend’s 21-year-old daughter who must have surgery soon that might render her unable to have children, something she has already decided against. Elyse began her post … Continue reading

Blaming and Punishing The Victim

According to Wikipedia, victim blaming happens when “the victim of a crime or any wrongful act is held entirely or partially responsible for the harm that befell them,” and that is the most apt definition I can think of. To put it simply, victim blaming is when the victim is blamed for something someone else … Continue reading

No Title Fits

“You can’t stay here.” One minute before, you called me to confirm that I’d still be coming home this weekend.  I smiled and responded in the affirmative.  Last weekend, we made progress and I couldn’t wait to resume. You asked if I heard your message from Wednesday and I responded that I was ill.  Then you spoke … Continue reading

An Evening With Baby C

“Hi, Daddy” Baby C shrieked excitedly as I entered my mother’s house. He was, as usual, parked in front of her computer playing games on the Nick Jr. website. I stole some love from my niece (hey, she’s stingy with it) before sitting down on the couch to let Baby C play for a few … Continue reading

Sweet, Sweet Validation

Since I began blogging over three years ago, I’ve read a handful of posts from mothers who chose to formula feed their children, and they spoke about the backlash they received for that decision. They were shamed. Their commitment to raising a healthy child was questioned. They were told they were horrible parents. They were … Continue reading

My Oldest Surviving Memory

[Editor's Note: For this month's Remember the Time, Emily and Kelly would like to know what our earliest recollection is. I had written about my earliest memory in response to a Daily Prompt  back in December of 2012, so I'm dressing this post up and adding a few things to it and making it seem like … Continue reading
