Blog and Blather: In 2008 I created a little support group on Facebook called Moms Who Drink And Swear™. That little group became a big group and is the basis of profanity laced blog documenting my opinions, both professional and personal, about mental health and parenting. You can find my blog, called Moms Who Drink And Swear™ featured on the tronc (Formerly known as Tribune Media Group) Blog Network called ChicagoNow. You can find clean language versions of my posts on Moms Everyday.com and watch me on Moms Everyday Television .
