If you care at all about children, old people, poor people, brown & black people, the environment, or animals you might have noticed that things are tricky right now. And by tricky, I mean that we are living in a country with a government that appears not to give a fuck about these things. And maybe a base of people that also don't give a fuck. Sometimes I feel motivated to incite change because I live in Portland and I'm in this bubble where the people I know and interact with on a daily basis do care. They are putting signs in their yards that begin "In our America . . . " (you've seen this sign/sticker/shirt/meme; it's lovely) and they are showing up at town hall meetings and at the airport to welcome immigrants. But much of the country is cheering on this shitty president who is "getting things done". What the actual fuck?!
I'm Molly. I'm all in for parenting. I'm all in for good food. All in for big and small outdoor adventures. And really only partly in for homemaking. I want a Martha Stewart home and meal, but the truth is, we mamas just can't do it all. Not really. This shit is tricky!
This is a collection of musings and missives about parenting like you mean it. I mean really mean it. About how you can pull off a really mostly decent meal, keep your house kinda clean, do some of your laundry, and also even remember to usually feed your pets. But mostly about how being a mama is hard and we can totally rock it, but maybe that dream of perfection has got to give a little.
