2. Disney’s “Turning Red” Turned Me Re

The popcorn was ready, the lights were dimmed, and we were all set for a fun, familial time. However, about 20 minutes into the awkward film, I found myself questioning if I should turn the movie off because much like the pre-pubescent main character, I, too, was flooded with emotions resulting in anger, disappointment, and concern.

3. Unfathomable Tragedy: Lift the Savoie Family up in Prayer

Slidell is unique in that if you are in the 35-40-year-old range, we probably know each other or we most definitely have many many friends in common. We all seem to run in the same circles. Which is why when the news broke yesterday that a student was hit by a car in the parking lot of Our Lady of Lourdes school during car line, life shifted into slow motion as prayers flooded heaven.

4. Cartoon Catharsis: The 7 Bluey Episodes That Make Me Cry

5. The Hidden Danger All Parents Need to Know About :: My Daughter Was Tracked

All good things must come to end, so after landing at the New Orleans Airport on Father’s Day she traveled with her friend back to the family’s home.

6. A Love Letter to New Orleans: We Want You Back

New Orleans. My funky, cultured, musical, beautifully, dirty little city. Oh, how I love you so. However, lately, I have been feeling as if we need to take a break. Can I avoid you? No. My office is on Poydras. Can I hate you? No. You are like my first real love that stole my heart. But right now. Right now, do I like you? I do not. And I never thought that would be something I say. Read more…

8. The 2 Amazon Products that Set Fire to Our Sex Life

But this toy they were talking about just seemed… different. While you can obviously have fun with this toy on your own, it seemed the general consensus in the group was that their partners were the ones who were using it on them. And they were getting incredible results. Read more… 

9. Breaking The Cycle: I Was Raised by a Narcissist

It wasn’t until I was in my late twenties and saw a therapist that I could even put a finger on why I am the way I am. I remember her saying it to me for the first time and it all just clicked. That was it. That’s exactly what my childhood was like. Read more… 

10. Why We Said Buh-Bye to Birthday Parties

July 2017: I had spent weeks making sure that every element of my son’s “Two Infinity & Beyond” birthday party absolutely perfect. I stayed up to the wee hours of the morning painting giant cardboard toys. I made perfect chocolate-dipped alien Oreos.
