I’m just a girl trying to save the world one blog post at a time. A writer by trade, I decided it might be fun not getting paid to write, which isn’t vastly different from getting paid, and started this blog. (Ok, it was a big, long process getting here involving unplanned pregnancies, my company’s downsizing, a move to another state and a paralyzing fear of writing.) All I know is I blame my husband for all of it (except for that last bit about the writing).
A former advertising copywriter turned award-winning journalist turned freelance writer/mom to two very demanding and irrational little people, I struggle to find this elusive work/life balance of which I hear people speak. My blog is an answer to that struggle as well as my response to Modern Motherhood. With it, I hope to provide incisive cultural commentary also known as common sense.
To that end, I’m the proud founder the Detached Parenting Movement. It’s a child-rearing model I single-handedly developed without any guidance or advanced degrees in child psychology. It’s the number one, best model in the world because anyone can do it. Become a member today! Because, as I say, if you’re not a part of the movement, you’re a part of the problem.
Since starting this little blog a few years ago my work has been featured on The Washington Post; The Huffington Post; Good Housekeeping; BlogHer; Babble; Brain, Child; and Scary Mommy among others. You can check out the complete list of sites I’ve written for on my Published Essays page if you’re super curious or have nothing better to do, and I sincerely hope you don’t. I’m also regularly featured on the Today Show’s Parenting site for Funniest Facebook Posts of the Week and on The Huffington Post’s Funniest Parenting Tweets of the Week. And I’m not just great at this parenting gig either. According to BuzzFeed I’m also nailing this marriage thing, too. Who knew? Certainly not my husband.
Oh, and I’m in these books, I STILL JUST WANT TO PEE ALONE and I JUST WANT TO BE PERFECT. They are the third and fourth installments in The New York Times best-selling series. Available on Amazon, Kindle, iTunes and Barnes and Noble. Get them today. I mean it.
Since freelance writing and maintaining a blog along with raising two kids isn’t enough, I also teach a blogging class through The Writers Circle. Check them out. I live with my husband who I like to call Kevin and our two kids, who I refer to as Crazy and The Kid. The Kid came along first, which is why she is The Kid. Crazy is named for his most dominant feature. That’s not a judgement call. Just simple fact. The kid’s crazy. Allow me to prove it.
I write from an undisclosed location under my bed because the witness protection program refused to provide any security. But you can email me at info @ onefunnymotha (dot) com if you want to talk.
I’m also working on a memoir based on my radical Detached Parenting theory.
If you wanna know more, allow me to introduce myself with my first post, Allow Me to Introduce Myself. If you really want to know more (and I will forever love you if you do) like the truth about parenting check out my profile, which I originally wrote for the Parent du Jour. It’s is pretty much everything you ever wanted to know about a potato head’s philosophy of parenting. And thanks!
