Where are the Boys?

It occurred to me this morning that many years ago, there was a thriving male blogger population.  There was Eric and Max and the DI-Dads.  There was Smarshy with his own bag of ass.  There was Fertile Frank, XBox4NappyRash, and Elm City Dad.  They weren’t guest posting on their wife’s blog or splitting the writing […]

Finding Out What You Love

I am almost done with these posts about Matthew Quick’s book, Every Exquisite Thing.  You don’t have to read the book to follow these posts and have an opinion because I’m using the book as a springboard to other mental spaces.  If you want to read the other posts I’ve written about this book, you […]

Quiet

Last weekend, we took a day trip to the beach.  Our normal beach is too far away for a day trip, so we opted for a closer beach. The closer beach isn’t ideal.  It has a lot of bars and a younger crowd.  The beach is smaller, so people sit closer together.  It feels a […]

649th Friday Blog Roundup

The Roundup is back. There seems to be a lot of podcasts recently about infertility or loss.  I don’t know if going to listen to them.  While I love hearing other people’s personal stories, I don’t love reading or listening to a reporter talk about something they’ve never experienced.  To that end, one of them […]

A To-Do List for My To-Do List

Modern Mrs. Darcy has a fun post about making a to-do list for your to-do list, and I want to echo that I do this everyday. My bullet journal is not realistic.  It contains everything that needs to get done; some of it immediately though some of it can wait a day or two.  (And […]

Is there a link between infertility and child educational outcomes?

Involuntary childlessness prior to either a first or a second birth is associated with lower academic achievement -- both test scores and grade point average -- at age 16, even if the period of infertility was prior to a sibling's birth rather than the child's own, research indicates.

#MicroblogMondays 145: Patron

Not sure what #MicroblogMondays is? Read the inaugural post which explains the idea and how you can participate too. I read a super interesting New Yorker piece about a barbecue restaurant called Piggie Park, owned and operated by a white supremacist who decorated his restaurant in confederate flags.  Kathleen Purvis spoke for many when […]

I Make the Librarians Dance

I like to imagine that when the librarians take a coffee break, they sit around a table in the backroom saying things like, “That Melissa is a great library user” or “Thanks, I will have a doughnut, and can you believe how reliable Melissa is with library books?” Maybe they whisper it so the other […]

STD treatment for two?
