Welcome to The Fun Ruiner, where raising punks intersects with the rest of my life when I’m not hiding in a closet, drinking a cocktail.

Free Birth Control

Reading Suggestions

Based on literary works of art (aka sexy books).

Great Musical Opinions

Debatable. There was a time in my life when I loved NKOTB…hard. 

Embarrassing Stories

Which sadly are true. 


I’m mom to a 5-year-old who, when in the car with a cop in view, yells “5-0. BEER LOW!”


Because, food.

Mind-blowing parenting tips

Flipping the bird behind your punks’ backs is an excellent stress reliever.

Guilty Pleasure

Naughty girl talk.

Seriously, it’s fine:

…if your Pinterest boards are filled with foods you’ll never cook, clothes you will never afford and exercises you’ll never try. A girl can dream, right?

…if you’re totally excited for the 50 Shades of Grey movie and have watched the trailer, more than once.

…to have a political viewpoint that is completely different from all of your friends. Stand for what you believe in. Always.

…if you own 37 lipsticks, eye shadows or finger nail polish and only wear 2 colors. A girl can never have too many options.

…if sometimes you just need a break from your punks. Girls night out, anyone?

Upcoming Book Excerpts

Scarlett is instantly upset since I am crying like a lunatic and her tears mimic my own. I drop to the floor and pull her onto my lap, burying my face in her wet, blond hair. I hear Ashley quietly tell Roscoe they need to get him changed into dry clothes but Scarlett and I don’t bother looking up, instead we stay wrapped up in each other’s arms until we’re both finally out of tears and we’ve heard the entire Stone Roses album.
