Adventures in Bra-Buying, Take 2

Four and a half years ago I wrote here about my demoralizing experience going to get professionally fitted for a bra for the first time in my life.  Too bad my first experience doing so wasn’t with a great rack, because it certainly makes the experience a lot different. Naturally, ever since my surgery a […]

Before and After

I’ve been ambivalent about posting my “before” and “after” photos, because … well. It’s certainly going out on a limb. But enough people have asked, and really, I’ve been a little stunned by the number of women who have contacted me privately saying they’re seriously considering having one or the other or both of the […]

Annual IEP Meeting

For anyone who has followed Finn’s educational saga since it began almost four years ago, I wanted to write about his IEP meeting which took place earlier this week. Because his last IEP meeting went so well, and because he’s had such an awesome kindergarten experience, we took a risk and attended the meeting earlier […]

Four Weeks Post-op

Today marks four weeks since my surgery.  How time flies when you’re enjoying your hot new body! I can say that since I paid for it with cold, hard cash.  And I did a little pain and suffering, to boot. Anyway, I am thrilled with how it’s all turned out so far.  The boobs, I […]

Inclusion is Hard

I mentioned a while back that I enrolled Finn in a tumbling class.  It’s been a couple of months now, and in all honesty, it’s been rough going.  He’s missed several classes due to illness, there was a substitute instructor one week, and there was no class last week for Easter weekend.   He does […]

Bam!  That got your attention, didn’t it? So, there was a recent post on Scary Mommy that’s made its way around social media (9 Rules of Swearing For My Children), and it’s had me thinking.  Let’s face it: profanity is a topic that’s near and dear to me. It’s a good essay, and I laughed […]

Two Weeks Post-op

Today marks two weeks since my upgrade.  My recovery is going remarkably well; I actually can hardly believe how good I feel physically after such a short time.  I had a follow-up appointment with the surgeon this morning, and he, too, was surprised at how well I’m doing.  Most of the post-surgical pain is gone.  […]

Screw the “Selfish” Crap Already

Someone posted this gem on Facebook recently.  I won’t even go into the whole working mothers vs. stay-at-home mothers thing – that it’s still a thing in this day and age is absurd.  The author covers that, and I have little to add. What I want to talk about is this whole notion of selfishness […]

Six Days Post-op

This morning I had the second drain removed, as well as the lipo sutures and all dressings.  I was able to take a proper shower for the first time in a week, and it was pretty glorious. According to the doctor, everything looks normal, and the healing is going as expected.  Curiously, I find myself […]
