It’s Week 2 of my public campaign, Shrinking My A$$ with Sass. Yes, I’ve been watching my weight. Now there’s a term. Last week, I watched my weight go up after eating healthy-ish. This week, I watched my weight and it actually crept down below my starting weight. I celebrated by eating a chocolate bar. […]
My original blog, IronicMom.com, launched me into the world of social media, publishing, and—most importantly—community. Many of my closest friends I met online. Enjoy perusing the archives of this humour blog or the more recent newsy stuff (below), which I hope is still funny. The best thing about this blog are my readers. They are hilarious. The comments they leave will have you spewing coffee over your laptop.
Plus, consider subscribing to my newsletter to capture some of the craziness that is our world.
William is our awesome introvert. If you’re able to earn his trust, he’ll reveal two things to you in no time: (1) his encyclopedic knowledge of sea creatures, especially sharks, and (2) his clever, understated sense of humor. A while ago, it was bring-your-favorite-stuffed-animal-to-school day. Sometime around noon, I received an email from William’s teacher. […]
I could say that I’m trying to get in shape, but such a statement implies I have no shape at all, like I belong to Amoebas R’ Us. I do have a shape, of course; it’s just expanding, like the universe. Every time that I go to my doctor, she shows me a graph of […]
Five hundred plus posts into my blogging career, I’ve finally moved IronicMom.com so that it’s self-hosted. I’m not sure what that means, but I think it means I’m no longer living under my parents’ roof for free. I’ve put on my big-girl panties and stepped out. As is likely obvious, the blog also has a […]
It’s been just days since we were in balmy Arizona and busy Southern California. I could share beautiful, sunset pictures taken over the Colorado River from my lawn chair. Or I could share some of the oddities that we saw, heard, and witnessed. Here, then, are 10 Bizarre Things We Experienced on Vacation: A guy […]

I get approximately seven offers a day about covering events, writing sponsored posts, or giveaways. I say no to 99% of them. It’s the same success rate my children have regarding any questions they ask me. Every now and then I say yes, though, as long as I retain full creative control and can use […]

Welcome to my fourth-annual list of the Worst Toys of the Year. Why create a list of toys that suck? Because shopping makes me want to bang my empty-cart-that-can’t-steer into other people’s full carts Because cheap, loud toys make me want to hammer-throw them off my back deck Because writing something funny is more therapeutic […]
