Being Married to a Cheerleader

As a little girl, I was a talker, a mover, and a wiggler who was constantly dancing and singing and usually loud. Since my parents couldn’t afford dance classes for me, they put me in cheerleading to help me use up some of my energy.

I cheered for six years of my childhood, up…

When friendships change

I do not know where my childhood best friend is. Her name is Nicole, and she and I were best friends from first through fifth grade. We were Girl Scouts together, we would play games in her basement, and we had countless sleepovers at each other's houses. When I moved to South Carolina, we wrote each other letters, but eventually that tapered off and we lost touch.…

For the record: Thanks, honey

What would you change about your spouse? Is it the way he leaves dishes in the sink? Or the way she leaves hair all over the bathroom floor? Think about the items in your marriage you wish were a little better. (Please don't email me a list or anything.)

Now, more importantly, what would you NOT change about…

Jessica (along with her blog partner Norine Dworkin-McDaniel) is the mama behind the illustrated parenting blog, inspired by the madness of raising kids, which even science can’t understand.

We discuss some of science’s sillier theorems. Like……

Could you work with your spouse?

I am spoiled. For several years I worked with my husband at the same company, and now we work only a few blocks apart. This means that I am used to being able to have lunch with my wonderful husband on a frequent basis and that neither of us has to go out of our way to spend time together in the middle of the day.…

First comes love, then comes marriage...or whatever

Marriage before baby or baby before marriage?

For my husband and I we chose to get married before having a baby. Even though we had been together for a really long time, it was important to us to have the contract in place before we brought a new life into this world.…

Just Hang On.

It's safe to say that becoming a parent changes things; specifically a marriage. Nine years together, four years married, and two kids later. We argue more than we should, about things that we shouldn't. We go to bed angry at times. A whole day can pass without kissing or hugging. And somehow, we don't have a real conversation for days. But, in the midst of the overflowing laundry, the oatmeal stained faces, the abundance of toys, and the daily tantrums--I still see you & I need you to…

Going from DINKs to parents

Dual-Income, No Kids.

That's what my husband and I were for a very long time. We spent years together working, traveling, figuring out who was the better chef (me), who was handier around the house (him) and having long discussions about the type of family we wanted to have one day. I had been with my…

Planning to outlast your partner

The other day I heard a comedian say that a successful marriage is when one partner gets to watch the other partner die first. Yes, that is pretty morbid, but it is also true: Marriage vows even state "til death do us part."…

Can your marriage stand on one leg?

I am a flamingo. I am standing perfectly still in flamingo pose with one foot firmly rooted to the ground and the other balanced away from my body. I breathe in. I breathe out. I am calm and pleased by my ability to stay so centered.…

The many tests of marriage

Sometimes, younger unmarried women will ask me for relationship advice. I have been married to the love of my life for almost seven years, and we were together for 12 years before we got married. And so I am very honest when I talk about the tests of love.…

5 Things People Ask Me When They Find Out I'm Married To A Gynecologist

I can see the pupils dilate and the wheels begin to turn when people find out that I'm married to a gynecologist. Paranoid as this may seem, I've answered enough questions and survived too many bizarre interactions to be caught with my pants down again. My husband commenced his OB-GYN residency two weeks…

Daddy issues on a whole new level

My husband is a wonderful man. (And that is not just because he reads this blog.) He is a supportive spouse, an intelligent person and a fantastic father. In our hurried life, we pass messages via text, talk while he is standing in the kitchen and cozy up on the couch together. I hope that he feels the same level of support from me that I feel from…

Shuffling our kids around

My parents separated and divorced when I was in junior high school. Although I am not sure of the exact terms of the custody arrangement, I can say that my brother and I lived with our Mom and visited our Dad for a few weeks during the summer. I am pretty sure this was because we lived in South Carolina and my Dad lived in Indiana.…

How did I almost lose my best friend?

It was June 27, 2009, the happiest day of my life. The sun was shining bright, but my heart felt even warmer than that perfect summer day. I was about to say "I do!" to the love of my life, who just so happened to be my best friend.…

Ten Things Not to Ask Your Wife When You Come Home


I am so happy you are home from work. Before you walk through the threshold here are some guidelines of what NOT to ask:

1. Wow, what happened here? Life, Life happened here. The minions came home from school, and the living room, kitchen, playroom, and all other applicable areas exploded. If I wanted to follow them around with a basket, vacuum, and trash can, I would. I’m doing my best dude.

2. Whats for dinner? Food, food that…

Why Couldn't it Be 50 Shades of Purple

Discussions about 50 Shades of Grey seem to be everywhere, ad nauseam.  I have been wrestling whether or not to jump into the conversation but I decided I could no longer keep silent as I am passionate about helping people have better relationships and I think there are a few issues that haven’t been addressed yet (believe it or not!) ... so here goes.

First, I love the color Gray…

Perfect Date?!

A perfect date...oh my word.

Sounds like a lot of pressure, honestly.

I've come to realize that perfection is an impossible standard for this mere mortal. I actually attempted a romantic getaway with Wolf, the hubby last month.

It didn't go well. If you want all the gory (albeit funny) details, including stockings becoming slouch socks, you can read it here.
