My husband and I celebrated our 18th wedding anniversary at a fancy restaurant. After he ordered an expensive bottle of wine, he reached into his pocket and pulled out his gift to me. It was a handwritten list of treasured memories from our marriage. Memories, he said, that reminded him of how much we belonged together.It was a long list, maybe twenty or so memories. I glowed and held his hand as he…See More

They were thrilled.The second wedding was for adult guests only. My kids weren't even invited. Zaffy accepted this fate, content that she would attend the rehearsal dinner (Russell was officiating). Mgazi was ticked…See More

For that you get to go to your bed.Zaffron huffs and stomps off to her bedroom. I can't remember what it is that I asked her to do. But I do remember it being the third time I asked. She…See More

Zaffy's Strategy for Not Getting Pregnant

So, I'm driving the kids home after school. Mgazi announces that she doesn't want to have babies. (There is no context to this proclamation. The previous discussion had centered around Zaffron's snack bar strategy at school. "Mom, I know I'm only allowed to go to snack bar once a week. That's why I went twice this week. Next week I'm planning to take some time off!")Sooooo... Gazi doesn't want to…See More

Mgazi Thinks Hot People are Friendlier

Zaffron was telling me about a girl at school. She's been confused, unsure if the girl likes her or not. This conversation, of course, took place in the bathroom. (The second most popular conversation venue next to the car.)Zaffy: Mom, Mary was mean to me 2 days ago. She was mean to me ysterday. But today she was nice.Me: Maybe she just needed to warm up, Zaff.Mgazi: Yeah, Zaffy, maybe she just needed…See More

I'm a mom blogger that has been putting my thoughts on the web since 1996. It's Not Wine, It's Mommy Juice is about the precarious balancing act that I perform daily in an attempt to not suck too badly at any one version of me: wife, mom, professional, individual. Most of the time I end up hanging off the tightrope by my pinky.
What is your blogging philosophy?
Be honest. Don't be disrespectful.
I have been blogging since...
1996.
