Adventures in Public Restrooms: How To Traumatize A Blind Mother

Adventures in Public Restrooms: How To Traumatize A Blind Mother

This week, I had another “first” in the wild world of motherhood. After shopping in my local mall for a few hours, my almost pre-schooler, announced she had to “go to the potty right away.” Of course her declaration came just as my other darling child decided to throw the mother of all tantrums in […]

The Ugly Duckling Cake

The Ugly Duckling Cake

My family and I were invited to have Easter dinner with some close friends. We had been asked to bring dessert, so I set out to make a chocolate pound cake the day before. Simple enough. I’ve baked zillions of cakes over the years—baking is something I do for fun. But luck wasn’t with me […]

“8” Most Hazardous Kinds Of People You’ll Encounter With A Guide Dog

Frances and I were en route to my local hospital for a doctor’s appointment.  It was a cold, December night and we had taken a cab to our destination. Once arrived, Franny lead me towards the front door of the building. She stopped midway, indicating something was in our path. I extended my hand to […]

A Shopping Problem

A Shopping Problem

I shop online: easier browsing, less hassle, no lines. It works great until it doesn’t. Or, more like…until I doesn’t. I add some items to my digital cart. I zoom in on the screen of my well-loved and well-worn iPad, deciding which items to save and which items to abandon. I tick off things on […]

He Shed. She Shed. Man Cold. My “Fixer Upper” Fantasy

He Shed. She Shed. Man Cold. My “Fixer Upper” Fantasy

I knew the second that man walked in the door! “Don’t worry, it’s just allergies,” he said. Allergies my ass! Fourteen years of marital bliss, trust me, I know the difference between seasonal allergies and the start of a head cold. I tried to play it off like I wasn’t worried, shoving my daughters to […]

“7” Reasons This Blind Mom Loves Her QVC

Everybody has a bucket list, right?  You know the things we want to do before we kick the bucket…croak…bite the big one?  Well last night, I crossed one off my list.  No, I didn’t skydive into some exotic location. Wait for it…… Wait for it……  I got to be “live” on the air for QVC’s […]

10 Personal Grooming Questions Answered

10 Personal Grooming Questions Answered

After the initial shock wears off when people discover I’m legally blind, the “tip-toe questioning” commences. That’s when a sighted person decides to ask me ten less offensive questions on their quest to get the balls necessary to ask me that one, burning question their dying to know relating to my disability. While, I’m pretty […]

Gelato Explaining to Do: 7 Reasons I Gained 7 Pounds

Gelato Explaining to Do: 7 Reasons I Gained 7 Pounds

About a month ago, I divulged some pretty unsettling health information to my Blind Motherhood followers. In the span of one overall crappy week, my dermatologist diagnosed me with alopecia (I’m now bald) and my cardiologist informed me my heart was hardening (I’m 36 years old with a 50-year-old heart). In the weeks since getting […]

Bra-Less: Bra Shopping and Disability

Bra-Less: Bra Shopping and Disability

A few years ago, I figured out “Victoria’s Secret”.  That bitch is soooooo jealous of my giant breasts that she absolutely refuses to sell “my” size bra in “her” store. What the hell is up with that, Victoria?  I mean, can a blind chick just buy a bra or must she go bra-less? “Mostly Wonderful” and […]

Walking Dead: Carl Loses An Eye

If you read my blog, then hopefully, you have read one of my absolute favorite pieces, “How Being A Blind Mom Is Like Being on the Walking Dead.” I am a huge, super fan of the show. From 9pm to 10pm every Sunday, I don’t want to be bothered by anyone. No kids clawing at me. […]
