Soooo…it’s been quite a week. Anybody else make the mistake of taking their daughter voting last week? “Nevermind! Turns out the country is a lot more sexist that we thought.” Whew! Glad I’m not the only one who screwed that up. My 9 year-old cried bewildered tears Wednesday. This was a very black and white issue for […]

Alice and Sexy Cheeseburger
This ad just makes me sad. I can’t find it on Youtube, but ispot has it up here. I’ll break it down for you. (Sorry about the play buttons in the middle up of the photos – I screen-capped the video.) Don’t mind me including my own voice-over. Yes, these are (very young) adults and […]
War on Thanksgiving?
We have RULES in this family, dammit. There are certain expectations for all of us. We must uphold our values, no matter how societal pressures influence us. These restrictions are hard and fast and non-negotiable. You can do whatever you like in your own house, of course. And if I don’t like a store’s policy of putting […]
Op/Ed: Children’s Music
I’m writing this post on my phone, at a 5 & under children’s playplace. Don’t pity me too much. I’m the only parent hanging in the nice little seating area. I have my Dunkin. I have my shoes off. I’m not crawling through tunnels to rescue a screamer who’s too scared to go down the […]

Because we’re very reverent people, clearly. Actually it was because we had two different churchy-upbringings, and we disagreed about whether the line is “forgive us our […]
People Who Judge People
People who make you wait behind them while they back into parking spaces. Explain to me how it’s easier, please? People who drive slowly in the left lane. It is called the “passing lane”, not the “I like this lane better so who cares about the driver behind me who just wants to pass” lane. People who […]
Under New (Behavior) Management?
So, I let the elder offspring give this letter to her teacher: Parents, teachers, and friends, I need you to tell me what you think of that move. Here’s the background: I have the feeling that my kid has been put in the ‘rough’ class several times now, probably because she can fend for herself academically […]
Spotify and the Music Streaming “Problem”
Taylor Swift made news this week by pulling her entire catalog of music from Spotify. “…I just don’t agree with perpetuating the perception that music has no value and should be free”, says Ms. Swift in the Us Weekly article linked above. Oh, Taylor. You have it so very wrong. The model for the production […]
