“Nine months ago, my mother died. This was the saddest, most painful time of my life, but somehow unexpected laughter managed to eke its way into the days and moments following her death...after determining she was, in fact, dead, my father, a very practical man, took the opportunity to finish up some laundry he has been working on”

Meredith Spidel, "You Have Lipstick on Your Teeth" and Other Things You'll Only Hear from Your Friends In The Powder Room

“Hey, Melissa-is there anything I should know about having this kid that isn't in the books I've been reading?"

Kim Bongiorno, "You Have Lipstick on Your Teeth" and Other Things You'll Only Hear from Your Friends In The Powder Room

“From the moment I was first pregnant, and those around me insisted that treats such as cold cuts and nail polish could cut my unborn child's potential IQ in half, I got into the habit of NOT seeking out the little things that brought me joy. Like soft cheese. And getting too close to a Starbucks.

Then my son came, and I was too busy crying while searching for his User Manual to consider a manicure or massage.

I lasted about a week as a new mom before reaching out to others in my situation online. As exhausted, cranky, and confused as I was, I needed friends.

“The Waverley sisters hadn't been close as children, but they were as thick as thieves now, the way adult siblings often are, the moment they realize that family is actually a choice.”
