For as long as I can remember, I have been “the fat one.” The fat friend, the fat sister, the fat daughter, the fat ____ (insert role/title here). Three or four times in my life, I have managed to lose an amount of weight equal to that of a kindergartner, but still only just enough to […]

I’ll admit it. Before I was a mom, I had some crazy ideas about how I was going to parent my children. For example: I’ll never dress my kids in matching clothes. It’s too cutesy, I thought. My kids have different personalities and, thus, should dress differently. Well, it turns out they want to match. They […]
