L.E. is now three so I mostly write about my life with a toddler.
I write honestly. Being a parent is not the easy, blissful thing that everyone seems to think it should be. The first year is downright hard. I love my daughter to pieces but she can also push my buttons worse than any person I've ever known.
I share my experiences because I genuinely believe we jade ourselves on parenting and need a strong dose of reality. Also, I really want a book deal.
I'm pretty sarcastic. I'm very witty. And I have a wickedly dark sense of humor.
I live in Austin, TX and am still getting used to being a Texan.
My husband, Dr. T., works at the University of Texas.
*insert obligatory "Hook 'Em Horns" here*
I left behind a 15-year career as a graphic designer to start over as a freelance writer and editor. You should hire me. Email me and we'll talk.
I have an ongoing battle with depression and anxiety which I happily fight with medication and exercise.
OK, I'm lying about the exercise. I try to run. Sometimes. But god, it's hot here. And have I mentioned the humidity?
Overall, I'm a happy person trying to steer this Parenting Ship without hitting too many icebergs and with few casualties. My number one goal in life, besides a book deal, is for L.E. to be happy, healthy, well-adjusted, smart and hilarious. So far, she's all that and more.
Thanks for stopping by and checking me out! Please tell your friends how awesome I am by sharing all the usual Facebooky, Twittery, Pintersty, Instagramy ways.
