From Hip to Housewife…in two kids flat: On Aging and Momming and My Twenty Year Quest to lose the same Ten Pounds
I’m a forty-something NYC Mom who worries about aging, parenting, and whether or not the fact that I just got a bunion means that I’ll never ever be able to buy a pair of Blahniks…even if I could afford them, or walk in them.
After nearly 20 years of writing promos for tv (think coming attraction for tv shows), I stopped working outside of the home, and started obsessively blogging and tweeting — oh and momming my twins. I am the co-founder and Queen Bee of www.kidzvuz.com, a review site for tweens where the tweens do the reviewing. You can read me every Saturday on Travelingmom.com, where I am NY Traveling Mom – the NYC expert. And you can listen to me on Blogging Angels.com. It’s a weekly podcast where Beccarama, Selfish Mom, Coast to Coast Mom and I yak about social media, parenting, and how the two intertwine. (I’m Farrah, btw) I’m hoping that eventually, somebody with a big publishing house and an even bigger budget will stumble upon my site, and turn me into the straight, female housewife version of David Sedaris I know I am.
Read my blog if you’re sick of hearing how young you’re supposed to be. (And to find out what I’m doing to try to look as young as I possibly can.) Read my blog if you know that you’re not the perfect Mom, you never will be, and really think life would be boring if you were. Read my blog to make a virtual friend, to laugh, to commiserate, to feel oh so superior when I really really mess up.
Welcome to my blog. Welcome to my world. I hope you come back often.
