I Am A…

Cross-posted from Eclectic Journey Photography Clickin Moms, my home away from home, has a great project going on now to benefit RAINN, an anti-sexual assault organization. They call it the I Am A Photographer project, but it is really about sharing who you are apart from being a photog or a mom. You are to […]

Supergirls Need Moms, Too

I’m the mom of a supergirl. Actually let me correct that. I’m the mom of a SuperGirl named, appropriately, SuperZara! SuperZara is an invincible superhero with a plethora of superpowers. If her SuperZara senses tingle, it tells her that something is awry in her protectorate land, and she is off in a flash to right […]

Conversations With Zizi: The Anatomy Lesson

I debated with myself all day about whether or not I should write this post. Doing so would probably cement my status as a mommy blogger from hell whose kid is going to end up on some therapist’s couch. I never wanted to be that mommy blogger… I never wanted to cross that line. Yet […]

This Kidlet

I really had to write about this evening with my kid. It was at the end of another frustrating day where I didn’t manage to get enough work done, I wasn’t able to secure help with getting our kitty down to the city for her daily radiation therapy treatment for her adenocarcinoma, I had forgotten […]

It’s Hard Being An Egalitarian

I don’t know whether or not this is normal, but it seems as if the older I get, the more I struggle with understanding or relating to those of my own sex. Sure, I’ve written about it before. A few times. This is not news. Yet old age and menopause seem to be causing me […]

Reason #759 I’m Glad I’m Not My Mother

Just the other day I was combing through the Dollhouse archives. And if you’ve been blogging as long as I have (since 2003) that’s a lot of combing. Someone had approached me about linking back to my blog tales about my infertility journey. There aren’t a lot of black infertility bloggers and many sistas tend […]

Open Adoption Roundtable #3: My Wishlist

No, I haven’t dropped off the face of the earth…really. It only seems that way. And no, the prospect of Boundary Crossers didn’t run me off. I’ve just been drowning…work, life, you name it. It’s been sapping my reserves. But first things first. I want to thank all of you for your supportive and helpful […]

Feely Gloop Sunday

I spent last Tuesday through Saturday in LA for the Society for Adolescent Medicine Meeting. Seems like every 3 years, we’re back at the good ol’ Century Plaza Hotel. This time, however, instead of staying with the family and being a conference commuter, I opted to get a room in the hotel…so much better! As […]

The Mom Song

OK, she is killing me! Yeah, I know a video post isn’t a real post, but this was too funny not to share.
