You know that friend that you can literally say ANYTHING to and know you won't be judged?  The one that will go have a drink with you before your first waxing appointment.  The one that you can call and cry to when you're having a really bad, short-tempered Mommy day.  The one you can commiserate with about feeling fat and ugly and depressed and know that she really understands.

I'm lucky enough to have a lot of great friends, both here in Florida and back in Michigan.  But my friend Jessica is definitely the one I can turn to for anything. We can share the goriest of details with each other, disagree on controversial issues, and have great conversations with our chaotic households in the background.  Some of our text conversations are my favorite though.  Short, sweet tidbits of life exchanged when our kids are screaming too loudly for us to call each other.

This is by far one of my favorite texting conversations.  Ever.

Jess: So I've decided I'm a man ... I just had my beard waxed last Wednesday and it's already coming in strong.  Damn.  Nasty.  Fat and bearded.

Me: You're not a man.  You're just hormonally challenged.

Jess: Hormonally a dude.

Jess: Wish my metabolism was like a dude.

Me: That's why I stay fat.  So I'm not attractive to other men.  It's a favor to Brian & the rest of mankind really.

Jess: lol you're too funny

Me: You're just doing the same thing - saving your marriage.  Your hubby should thank you.  If you weren't bearded the boys would be flocking and he'd be all jealous.  It's really in everyone's best interest.

Jess: I think once a dude found out our vags had 2 and 3 babies they wouldn't be interested anyway

Me: Touche my friend, touche.

That, my friends, is true friendship.


  1. I found your blog through reading Mama Laughlin. Just happend to notice your comment about twins and being a twin mommy myself...prompted me to check you out. So many things I read reminded me of me....I have 5 year old. and 4 month old b/g twins. I am nurse, turned NP and i was a CAGED animal staying at home. I applaud you for sticking with it but I had to return to work. I went into serious post partum depression after the twins and I had to take Zoloft. I am better and feeling great now. never ever dreamed that I would have to take something to dig out...but oh how I am a believer now. Your boys are so precious! great to 'meet' another MoM!

    1. Thanks Jenn! I'm with you -- I resisted meds for awhile but I'm on Paxil now and doing MUCH better. Being home is tough, but I think it'll get a little easier (and a lot harder at the same time) when I go back to school in the fall. I'm 3/4 of the way through my MSN (Nursing business & health systems w/a concentration in education). Definitely always great to meet another MoM! :)


I write for me. 100%. BUT it definitely makes my day when someone tells me that they enjoy reading my blog. Or that they hate it. Whatev.

So don't spare me your words of wisdom, encouragement, or mindless babble. I enjoy it all :)
