Last night my son asked if I'd ever heard of a pillow fight. I said I had not, so he explained the premise & asked if I would play. I awkwardly held a pillow as he gave me pointers through a smile that lit up the room. My first swing took him off his feet. He never saw it coming.

My husband just told me he wants a divorce.
Actually his exact words were “I think it would be cool for the whole family to live in an RV and travel the country for a year,” but tomato, to-mah-to

I remember watching Sex and the City in my early 20s and believing that being an adult was a lot of drinking red wine and cooking really amazing veal when it’s really just screaming obscenities at my children while burning the dino nuggets
