Play Nice

 So our babysitter is a rock star, our contractor a producer, Riley’s dad a television writer and Kirk, an actor/comedian. It’s pretty easy to tell that I live in an industry town, but I’m not an industry girl. I wouldn’t know how to get myself to Hollywood if my life depended on it! And I like it that way. I grew up in Boston surrounded by bankers, accountants, executives (and not TV executives), and in my particular…See More

Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
I’m a resourceful and “thrifty” mom of three, Riley (9), Zelly (1.5) and George (6 months). 2 ½ years ago I was single, and so was Kirk Zipfel, my adorable comedian husband. 3 years ago I was a single parent to Riley, and I learned how to be-bop around this town on exactly ”one thin dime”. Not an easy task. Now we have three kids, tag team parenting whenever we can and drive a MINIVAN!

I spent the first thirty years of my life as a “know-it-all”, and rightfully so, I used to know it all, or at least I thought so. I am the girl with the opinion, and I never know when to keep my trap shut. I’m always in trouble. Motherhood hasn’t helped. I love my family, my opinions are strong as ever and I “step in it”, trouble that is, just like I always did, but it turns out that actually, I don’t know a thing. I’m still the girl to call for recommendations if you want your banquet cushions re-covered, need a romantic and inexpensive date suggestion on the east side, or want to find out, well….not to sound like a jerk, but almost anything. But resourcefulness does not equate knowledge. When I sit down with myself in those rare quiet moments and try and figure it out, try so hard that it hurts, to recall all that I must know, I usually just come up with the damn lyrics to “The Wheels on the Bus”.

“What do I know?” is my written account (’cause I know I’ll forget) of my discovery, and rediscovery of what the hell it is I know…I’m pretty sure there’s gonna be some doozies but also some treasures!

What is your blogging philosophy?
Kept it real, relatable, resourceful and right on. My intention is always to share a smart, funny and cute snippit of a true moment in my messy family life without making it too personal. I am a teacher by trade, and therefor a strong supporter of community. I am building a community of like minded women and parents who are all struggling with what the heck it is they know. Hopefully my posts help us all to be in the know, even a wee bit more.
I have been blogging since...
