Hey, ladies: are you sick and tired of being told you should have “goals” and “ambitions” related to your “career”?

Stop Telling Women Having Sex When They Don’t Feel Like It Is The Recipe For A Healthy Marriage

Stop Telling Women Having Sex When They Don't Feel Like It Is The Recipe For A Healthy Marriage

Am I the only woman sick of hearing the advice, “Make your marriage stronger by having sex even when you don’t feel like it?” How about, “NO.” Enthusiastic consent doesn’t only apply when we are teaching our kids about rape culture. Enthusiastic consent should be a given every, single time you have sex. And if you don’t feel like having it — men or women alike — you shouldn’t be guilted into it on the premise that it makes you a better partner. More »

I Didn’t Cry On My Son’s First Day of Kindergarten

I Didnât Cry On My Sonâs First Day of Kindergarten

n Canada, most schools start on the first week of September. So, naturally, back to school stuff starts circulating in about mid-July, about three weeks after school lets out for the summer. Never too early, right? This year, back to school had more meaning for me than in years past: this year, for the first time, one of my kids was heading off to kindergarten. Ben was excited (and I was too) when we started seeing the first signs of back to school sales floating around. More »

New York Post Sinks To A New Low By Mocking Chelsea Clinton’s Day-Old Daughter

New York Post Sinks To A New Low By Mocking Chelsea Clinton's Day-Old Daughter

A new baby has arrived on the planet! At best, that’s a reason to celebrate, and typically at worst, it’s a reason to quietly click “Unfollow” on the new parents’ Facebook profiles.

Mom guilt. It is so insidious and can creep up on you when you least expect it. Whether it’s an innocent question from your little one that stirs up feelings of yuck (“Momma, why you so grumpy at me?”) or thoughts of inadequacy spurred on by the extreme mothering of the Pinterest- perfect crowd (ugh, quit it with the crafting already) I can guarantee there were moments in the last week where you had twinges of mom guilt.

There Is No ‘Right Age’ For A Babysitter

There Is No 'Right Age' For A Babysitter

We have yet to hire a babysitter outside of our family and regular daycare providers. We don’t go out a whole ton but we are fortunate that my parents or brother typically say yes when we need a babysitter. This is mostly a cost-saving measure as well as a way of ensuring our kids get some quality time with their grandparents or uncle. However, if and when we do hire someone outside of family I don’t know that I have a particular age in mind as much as a particular level of responsibility and trust-worthiness. I really believe there is no “right age” for a babysitter. More »
