Have we met?
Freelance writer, mom blogger, pop culture lover.
I’m Amy, a former reality television producer and advertising executive finally living the dream of writing barefoot while raising my daughters and occasionally feeding my very understanding husband. You might know me from my freelance work, which appears regularly at places like The Huffington Post, mom.me, Momtastic and PopSugar. A few of my posts went viral – in a non-germy way – including “40 Effed Up Things about Being 40” and “You’ll Always Be My First.” Once upon a time, I studied English literature at the University of Pennsylvania and I still love books, especially in paper form. I force my kids to listen to 80s music. I will never give up pasta.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's divorce news is hitting me hard, yo. Longtime readers may remember that my second blog post ever was actually about Brangelina being "Carriage Before Marriage" just like me. Our weddings took place the same year. I pretty much assumed...read more
Dear Husband, I’m not trying to pick a fight, but there’s something you’ve been doing for a while now that really gets on my nerves, so I need to say something... You’ve been getting hotter. And it’s a problem. When we first got together seven years ago, you and I...read more
How do you know when your baby has become a toddler? Some would say it's when they begin walking and talking. I'd say it's when they start making mischief. The other day, I was home with Chloe (16 months) and my mother-in-law. We stepped outside the front door for...read more
I've been pregnant, trying to get pregnant or nursing for most of the past six years. So rather than owning and occupying my own body, I've been renting it out to some rather unruly but very adorable tenants. At 15 months old, Baby #2 is still on the lease, nursing on...read more
