This is my attempt at being a virtual tour guide for new guests, so that you can get a feel for what’s going on around here. I don’t have any snacks to offer you, but the least I can do is show you around a bit. You can snack afterwards, I know you have the self-control to wait a few minutes.
My all-time most popular post, They Break, You Know went viral on Scary Mommy under the title The Child I Didn’t Adopt. To date it’s been shared over 730,000 times. Of the millions who have read it, I hope and believe that it moved a portion of people to action. The piece earned a 2015 BlogHer Voice of the Year Award for Impact. If you want more information on adoption, check out this resource page.
Usually, I write humor.
Like Kate Middleton, My Mesh Post-Partum Underwear Salute You. That one went nuts. People are super into the royals and underwear, I think.
But then periodically I like to throw a curveball and sucker punch people with a tear-jerker, like In The Nursery Where Time Stands Still.
One of my favorite posts ever is To The Parents Who Don’t Feel Like They Can Get It All Done. If you want a good reason to neglect your chores today, read this. It will make you feel better.
If you want to start from the very beginning, have at it! You can see the first ever post here and work forward. You are ambitious, clearly. Good for you!
There is lots more, of course, so look around and make yourself at home. Take your shoes off if you want, but keep on your pants, ok? We’re not that kind of establishment.
