Hi, I’m Elizabeth, and I love my son, Liam. But this blog is only sometimes going to be about love. And you’d certainly be hard-pressed to find me spouting Blissed-Out Mama Love.
No, I find being a mom really hard. Perhaps you do, too. Or perhaps it amuses you to watch someone in different circumstances from yours squirm like a bug. In either case, welcome.
If two or more of the following apply to you, you will almost certainly not like this blog, and you should probably just move along:
- You think the experience of parenthood has been nothing but sheer joy since you first found out about that little parasite growing inside your / your sweetie’s uterus.
- You are an evangelical anything.
- You are homophobic.
- You think boys will be boys and girls will be princesses and that’s just that.
- You don’t like swears.
If you’re a family member and more than two of these things apply to you, you can stay, but you need to pipe down.
