Look at this awesome swing we found! It’s got a spot for me, and one for baby G!
Want to know what makes a humor blogger tick? Ever read a funny post and thought, “What on earth is
Have you ever wondered, “What makes smart ass writers want to inflict their inner ramblings on the rest of the world?” Perhaps you’ve read my blog and thought, “Is this real? How does all this crazy shit happen to one person?”
(Answers: 1. Narcissism 2. Yes. 3. Beats me.)
Now that we’ve got that out of the way, I have some questions for my fellow humor bloggers. (Do you mind? It is my blog, after all.)
Baby G actually does a better job walking in heels than I do!
If you’ve been following my blog regularly, you’ve already heard about some of my parenting fails. It’s really hard for me to choose which was the biggest, or most hilarious, though. Was it the time that I called my pediatrician’s office and insisted that my daughter was born on my dog’s birthday? The time I drove my kids home to the wrong house? Or got lost on the way to their school? What about the time that I woke up in the middle of the night, tore the sheets and blankets from my bed, and screamed at my husband that we had to find the baby…who was sound asleep in her crib? (And now you know why I drink.)
It’s really hard to choose! But since I’ve had so much fun writing about them, I asked some of my blogger friends to share their most hilarious parenting fails with me.
Hello, lovely readers! I’m having a fantastic day. My baby boy, the one who brings me fistfuls of leaves every day, snuggles up to me whenever I sit anywhere, and has literally written me so many love letters that we can’t keep paper in the house for more than a week, has just turned six.
This week we’re talking to Katie from The Squirmy Popple. Katie is an American-ish digital content nerd living in Glasgow with her husband, toddler and a-hole cat. She was born in New York but moved to the UK over a decade ago and never looked back. Her passions include cheese, feminism and NPR.

Another blogger asked me about this last week, so I decided to dedicate this week’s Writerly Wednesday to apostrophes. This little piece of punctuation seems to trip a lot of writers up, so let’s look at scenarios in which you would, or would not, use an apostrophe.
A long time ago, in a kitchen far, far away…
Actually, it was five years ago, and the kitchen was in my old house, about two miles from where I’m sitting now. Yeah. I’ve really gone places.
All I had to accomplish was one phone call. My daughter, S, was sick. Who knows what she had, but I had a newborn, a sick kid, and an addled brain that had been ravaged by a constant barrage of Disney and unanswerable questions. (People think Mommy Brain is hormonal, but have you ever considered the collective brilliance that would come from the world’s population of moms if they no longer had to come up with intelligent answers to “What color is a princess’s fart?”)
