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.

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
I knew two kids would be harder than one kid. I just didn't know why. The problem is car seats. With one kid, the car seat was installed in the center, and I could extract my daughter from either door, whichever was most convenient. Now I've got the baby on the...read more
Until recently, I would have told you that my most unusual job experience was working as a street vendor on Telegraph Avenue in Berkeley, selling tie-dyed t-shirts from a shop called The Wizard of Odd that said things like, "When the going gets tough, the tough get...read more
I think 89% of you read this already via social media, but I liked this post and wanted to make sure it got to the anti-Facebook crowd. You should see me with the baby. I kiss and cuddle, hold and rock, murmur and nuzzle. Every interaction with her is sweetness and...read more
