You guys. About this time every year I wonder why the hell May is my favorite month. It’s bonkers. I mean, all parents know it’s typically a hectic month, but holy hell it has kicked. my. ass. this year. Don’t worry, I’m still basking in my Rob Glowe, but I’m also still sprinting to outrun the […]

If YMFT’s loyal readers know anything about me by now — besides the fact that the circumference of my head is the same as a prize-winning watermelon, that I only use Citron vodka in my Appletinis, and that I will not cook anything that has more than eight ingredients in its recipe — it’s the […]

According to my iCloud calendar and about 63 friends on Facebook — not to mention Facebook itself (thank you, Zuck) — today is my birthday. Again. Seriously you guys,  I swear it was just my birthday like last week, which may or may not have to do with the fact that I seem to find […]

If you read the blog it’s no secret that for the past few years I’ve been in a major battle with aging, and it’s been ugly. Not so much the battle (because I’m a gracious loser), but the sags, bags, and wrinkles that make me literally gasp each morning when I see myself in the […]

For the past four years I’ve reposted this story on 9/11. Why? Because we all have our stories from that horrific day, and try as we might, we can’t make them change. 15 years ago at this time I was trying desperately to get another hour of sleep. My 4 month old had had a fussy […]
