ICYMI (in case you missed it): I’ve been submitting my work, otherwise known as throwing spaghetti, and the last couple weeks have been good for sticking: My kids have been soccer referees, basketball refs, and lax refs. Usually, most youth referees are somebody’s kids. Despite this pic, they’re not that tough. But that doesn’t stop parents from behaving badly. Really badly. BluntMoms syndicated an essay I wrote about that here. Scary Mommy picked up my frustration
Shared a great post about my South Bronx girl with the BluntMoms and they were kind enough to publish it! This is my first time on this bucket list website of like-minded, potty-mouthed writers. The piece selected, however, is beautiful glimpse of real life, not a scathing expose of motherhood. Maybe next time. Take a visit to this blunt and hysterically funny site, and find surprisingly touching glimpses of real life as well.
