the smell of my desperation has become a stench

Cap Sleeve Polka Dot Dress

Yesterday I hit a wall. Or maybe the wall tumbled on top of me and I just stood there without covering my head. Point is: I was not feeling like this photo yesterday. Turn it upside down. There. I was frowning with my teeth.

A little over a week ago Cami came over to take some new head shots of me because my hair hasn’t been this long in over four years. I took a selfie in the bathroom mirror almost a year ago that I have been sending out when people ask for a bio and a photo. People flipping through the list of speakers at an event would most likely get to my page and think NICE BATHROOM, BLOGGER.

This is one of the two dresses I bought to go to meetings in NY earlier this month, an Anne Klein cap sleeve polka dot dress. It’s the one I wore the day I had to hail a cab in the pouring rain, and it held up like a superstar. Very comfortable, super flattering, and I’m in love with the color. Added bonus: it’s not workout clothing. Leta came home from school and tripped over her feet when she saw me.

Today I’m going to try to find this expression again. The fact that I don’t have to get on an airplane is already helping.

Hi. I’m Heather B. Armstrong, and this used to be called mommy blogging. But then they started calling it Influencer Marketing: hashtag ad, hashtag sponsored, hashtag you know you want me to slap your product on my kid and exploit her for millions and millions of dollars. That’s how this shit works. Now? Well… sit back, buckle up, and enjoy the ride.
