Equality for Men: The Right to Father

My husband turns mean and defensive when people say things to him like, "Oh can I hold baby? Is it okay with her mother?"  or "Can you ask your wife if I can give her a cookie?"

"I'm her father!  Why can't you ask me?" he'll demand, face beat red and nostrils flaring.  He can't understand why he's never looked at as the one in charge or responsible for making decisions on our daughter's behalf.  I always try to remind him that this new gender role reversal is a culture…

Letting Go Of Facebook

As you may know, I have been on a Facebook fast for the last 20 days. And while my blog posts have been showing up there on the regular, that is due to nifty little tricks that my blogging friends and I call auto-posting. It's pretty awesome.



At any rate, I think I may be done with Facebook. I have found that anytime I remember anything about Facebook all I hear is the chatter of my 200 some "friends" in my ears. And sometimes it is just too much to try to…

Give Time To Our Family

After 21 years of marriage, my wife wanted me to take another woman out to dinner and a movie. She said, “I love you, but I know this other woman loves you and would love to spend some time with you.”

The other woman that my wife wanted me to visit was my MOTHER, who has been a widow for 19 years, but the demands of my work and my three children had made it possible to visit her only occasionally. That night I called to invite…

What beats technology? Don't Break The Ice, of course!

My kids love technology. They could stay online for hours, love playing x-box games, even create their own videos. It's just part of their culture - I get it.

Sometimes I have to actually push them outside to go play in the real world.

I like technology, too - but I'm not quite so enamored. In fact, I even walk a fine…

None of Your F@*#ing Business!

More often then not I get asked “Did you need help to get pregnant?” “Did you have to use IVF?” “Do twins run in your family?” because I have twins.  My initial reaction is to respond “Non-of your F@*#ing business”, but a smarter part of me tells my brain to answer politely even although it really is no ones business how I became pregnant, they are only asking out of shear curiosity and not meaning me any harm or hurt feelings.  But I also always wonder if they would really want to  hear the…

Us DI (Donor Inseminated) Moms Are Not Alone!

I wanted to post part of a response I wrote to a DI mom who contacted me as I feel like it represents how a lot of us moms who have used donor sperm feel.

” we all have things about DI that we are trying in vain to keep a secret from someone in our lives. Personally for me my kids are very young. 20 month twins and a 3 year old, so quite a while until we need to start having the talk about them being Donor inseminated kids. All of my family and friends know about my kids, but my…
