About Me

Didn’t you used to be called Mom-in-a-Million?
Yeah. That was the name I picked out of thin air when I first set this blog up. I thought then that I’d write funny anecdotes about being a mom.

Why don’t you write funny anecdotes about being a mom?
Sometimes I do, actually. I write about babies and kids at Babble.com. But I limit the scope of my mom-related writing.  I’m not willing to share many details about my husband or my kids because I’m psycho about their privacy. Rather than expose the details of their lives, I tend to write about my opinions.

So, basically you suck at mom-blogging.
Pretty much, yeah.

What is a pundit?
A pundit is a person who bloviates at length about a variety of subjects, usually politics and culture. At least that’s what I bloviate about. Like Rachel Maddow but not nearly as cool.

What do you mean by Stay At Home Pundit?
Well, I’m a stay at home mom but I used to be active in policy stuff. I actually have a masters in cultural policy studies and I spent a lot of years doing federal advocacy work for a non-profit. All of that means I’m moderately well-informed about how the federal government works and I feel like I can state opinions on politics with confidence. And I do it from the comfort of my couch with my kids frolicking about. So, Stay At Home Pundit.

Has anyone ever told you that if you have to work that hard to explain something, it probably isn’t funny?
Yeah. ::Hangs head::

Are you part of the liberal media?
I’m part of the liberal blogosphere. I’m no journalist. I’m just a loudmouth leftie with an internet connection.

Why should anyone listen to you?
Because I will never knowingly lie to you and I will always do my best to disclose my biases.

That sounds good. Maybe you should run for office.
Bahahahahahahahahahahahaha! Hahahhahahaha! Hahahaha! No.

    I stumbled, quite literally, upon our blog. I really enjoyed it. I started blogging too, in an attempt to avoid what you said as reason #1. My husband has cancer. Im not even 30 yet. He might die (it is stage IV colon only the 2nd most deadly form of cancer) but I will never stop fighting for him to LIVE. Thanks for allowing me some good reads today. 🙂

    This seems like a pretty nasty blog. You don’t seem like a very nice person. Not sure why I felt a need to tell you, but I found the articles I read disturbing and highly judgmental. I like Mom blogs because they usually spread some sunshine, but yours a dark, cloudy, rainy day.

    Reading your blog all the time. Thanks for posting the notice about the march on DC for sensible gun control.

    Hi, my name is Regg. I’ve read your article POPE FRANCIS ON RELIGIOUS TOLERANCE: DO GOOD, WE WILL MEET ONE ANOTHER THERE. I am a christian. I believe in every word of scripture. I think the Pope has taught error in that homily. I just wish to put the truth in front of you. As far as doing good, I do not wish to argue that point. I too believe that people can do good(charities, feeding the homeless, etc.) but it doesn’t mean that we are good on the inside. I’m assuming that by meet there the pope meant Heaven. The truth is that Heaven is not based on what you have done; it’s based on what you didn’t do. It’s not a matter of how much bad you’ve done or how much good you’ve done. It’s a matter of putting your faith(trust) in Jesus Christ’s death on the cross. In that he accepted your penalty in place of you.

    I am curious to find out what blog platform you have been working with?
    I’m experiencing some minor security problems with my latest site and I
    would like to find something more safeguarded.
    Do you have any recommendations?
