House TalkN is a fun lookiloo at houses, houses, houses. It will answer pressing questions like, "When folks build a McMansion on a small lot, what are they compensating for?" or "Was the real estate agent drunk when they staged this house?" or "Why don't the Smiths' ever leave their drapes open when I am on a harmless walk-by?"

My Bad Parenting Moment

I already confessed that I was a much better parent before I had children. 
Since having children, I have eaten record amounts of humble pie. For every time I said, "My child will never..." I have been served at least two servings of "cut that shit out pie."
I wanted to be "AWESOME MOMMY!" Today, I am sharing how I became "Good Enough Mommy!" 
Meet me In The Powder Room to hear about one of my many bad parenting moments. Trust me, you'll feel better about yourself. 
While you are there, check out our guest Bethany from Bad Parenting Moments. 
And, puh-lease leave a comment and share your own "bad parenting moment." I need to feel better about myself, too. 


  1. Funny! Well, where should I start...with the scar perfectly shaped like the tip of an iron on my daughter's knee? Thanks for sharing..I think every Mom needs to be encouraged to just give it your best shot and go in peace.

    1. Oopsy! My neighbor gave me the best advice: Don't judge your insides by other people's outsides!
      Thanks, Sharon!
