The Six Types of Kids in the Lunchroom

Holy crap you guys! Today, a piece I wrote called “The Six Types of Kids in the Lunchroom” is on Scary Mommy!!!! I’m so excited, and totally freaking out. For those of you who don’t know, Scary Mommy is a hugely popular and very funny website for less than perfect Moms (and Dads) that averages 30 million page views a month. To compare, my little blog–which at 11 weeks old has only recently learned how to smile and is starting to babble–averages about 850 page views a month. I am thrilled for this exposure, and so happy to be part of a community that celebrates those Moms who aren’t afraid to admit they don’t have all the answers, mostly because they can’t even hear the questions over all the noise in the house.

Thank you to everyone for reading and sharing (especially for sharing). I dedicate this one to all the parents who give up their free time to volunteer at school, and particularly to the wonderful ladies of the CAS PTO. Here is the link:

    You are amazing!

    A potentially funny topic–based on my own “challenges” as a mom is dinner time. Even when I was home full-time, dinner came to me every day like a surprise.

    SURPRISE I have to feed the kids dinner! D always comes home late so he eats the craps, Ronin noodles (yes I said it) or on special nights I picked up some items from the gourmet market and “assembled” a plate for him. The sad part is I can actually cook.

    I would ask my kids what they want WRONG question!!!! Could that be the reason why I have a picky eater and one that is becoming a picky eater?

    Low tide comes in at 5:30….this is a conversation. It’s basically the witching hours for all ages, including moms/dads where nothing good happens.
