Mom’s Day Of..

My favorite hair

Yesterday was quite a day in this household! It was the first day that Coco has been in daycare and it felt so surreal because of the calm quiet in the house. I’m sitting here typing this and realized that I might actually catch up on my studies. It’s been a partially barren wasteland here […]

Identity Crisis

Scary mommy, indeed

Rather than post the usual links without commentary, I’m going to address something that’s been going on as of late. Right now I’m sitting here listening to British Sea Power and I feel like a fraud.

Academy Award 2012..

Rooney Mara Oscars 2012

I don’t have cable television so we watched the Oscars on Sunday night via streaming behind the scenes online. Another confession to make is that out of the nominees, I only saw the Woody Allen film Midnight in Paris. There were other movies that intended to see, but it just didn’t happen with baby. […]
