Want parenting advice? Yeah. So do I. You’ll have to go elsewhere for that. But if you want to lighten your mood while reading about someone else’s parenting issues, you've found the right blog.

In addition to blogging on Mother Words for the Jewish Exponent, I work as a freelance copywriter.

Before going into marketing, I was a journalist. My articles have appeared in Glamour, Cosmopolitan,Mademoiselle, Good Housekeeping, Marie Claire and Philadelphia Magazine.
