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 you can’t stand wearing Capri pants

…to stay up until 3 am because you can’t put the book down (just one more chapter, then I’ll go to sleep. Okay, one more.)

…to take a girls only weekend with your besties (No punks, no husbands? A definite YES.)

…to be thankful your punks are at an age they can turn on the tv and pour themselves cereal on mornings you just need to sleep just a little bit longer

…if you don’t really like sweating

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.
