Unexpected Challenges

As a parent, you quickly figure out that your kids force you to face all kinds of unexpected challenges. After making it through weaning, potty training, second-grade homework battles (both my kiddos found that year hard, so in turn I did too), fifth-grade friendship dramas, and the first broken hearts, I thought I had it […]

Tips for Choosing the Perfect Lunchbox

We have partnered with HEB to bring relevant and important information to ACMB Readers through this sponsored post. The first day of school is rapidly approaching! That phrase elicits elated fist bumps for some, tears of despair for others. When I rounded the corner last week at my HEB and found the red-shirted employees packing up the [...]

Chores Killed My Kids’ Summer

We had kids to increase our household workforce. So you can imagine our unbridled joy when the doctor showed us the ultrasound showing two beating hearts. “Boys,” said our OB. The look on my husband’s face said it all. He was not thinking of football games or teaching his young sons about his love for […]

The Summer Before My Teenager Arrives

May All That We Do Be Done In Love

I’ve been an ACMB contributor for almost two years now, and I keep on avoiding a topic: race. Honestly I haven’t written about it for all sorts of good reasons. The biggest one being that I’m white. I’m not an expert, plus white women are socialized to not talk about race. It’s not polite. Even though […]

Dear Moms, You Are Not Enough (1)

Dear Moms, You Are Not Enough

It’s the dog days of summer and to us moms, that means we’re knee deep in child tantrums, sweat-drenched attempts to get the kids in the car before we melt, and the ever-so-popular “I’m bored.” It also means you’re fairly accustomed to feeling like you might lose it at any given moment. But it’s those […]

What You Need to Know about Pokémon GO

If you’re not a Bulbasaur living under a rock, you’ve probably heard about Pokémon GO. It’s the throwback to the early ’90s sensation that’s sweeping the mobile world, causing people to crash cars, find dead bodies (no joke!), and other crazy things. However, if you’re like 99% of the Mom World, you probably haven’t really […]
