In Which a Non-Sports Fan Watches the World Series and Likes It Thu Nov 03 2016
I’m not a sports person, though I am a sports mom. I spend multiple days a week watching my kids play hockey or baseball, depending on the season. But I don’t actually like sports. view at huffingtonpost

Feminist Mama Manifesto Thu Oct 02 2014
I wanted to be a prostitute for Halloween. My mother wouldn’t let me. I wanted to be a cheerleader. My mother wouldn’t let me. My mother only allowed gender neutral toys to cross my path until I wrapped up a bag of kitty litter in my blanket and rocked to it and sang it lullabies. Then she gave in. view at huffingtonpost

Its' Not the End of the World (Yet) Fri Jan 20 2017
It feels like the end of the world. I want to lie on the floor for the next four years. (The couch takes too much effort and offers too much comfort.) Many of my friends are fired up and mobilizing, but I’m not there yet. I’m still lying on the floor. view at huffingtonpost

We the People Wed Feb 01 2017
We need to find those few places where our views overlap and strengthen those bonds, because we can't move forward without the other side. If we could, we would have won the election. view at huffingtonpost

When Hate Crimes Hit Close to Home Tue Mar 07 2017
I clicked through a photo gallery of vandalism at the Waad Hakolel Cemetery, where my great-grandparents, aunts, and uncles are buried. Toppled graves, defaced photos on headstones. Defaced sounds clinical, but here it is an exact word—care was taken to destroy only the faces on the mounted photos. There is no chance that such damage occurred from weather or settling earth. view at huffingtonpost

Divorce Is A Car Crash And You’re Both At Fault Tue May 23 2017
No matter what the insurance company says, both parties are always at fault in every car accident, and if you can’t see your part in causing the accident, you are doomed to repeat it. The same can be said for divorce. view at huffingtonpost

Sorry, Comet, Adults and Children Can’t be Friends Tue Dec 12 2017

Life At The Fringe Tue May 09 2017

A Divorced Mom Talks to Her Children About Marriage Tue Dec 27 2016

Sometimes You Are Not a Victim - You Are an Asshole Wed Dec 31 2014

Mama, Look at Me Mon Jan 16 2017
My body is there with my children, but my mind is full of my own things: who needs to be where, when, and what needs to happen in order for that to occur, what I can cook for dinner that everyone will eat without complaining, a half-thought I want to remember to write down and expand into an essay. I look at him but don’t watch him closely. read this article
