I am a birth mom to 3 kids, adoptive mom to 1 kid, and a stepmom to 4 step-"adults." Yes, you read that right... 8 kids. I am wife of actor Michael Beach, home cook, taxi driver, herder of children, terrible housekeeper and blogger of mom truth.

Ode to Technology

Ode to Technology

Oh technology, what can I say to thee? Without you, I have no idea what would transpire.

From my iphone to computer to smart tv, thanks to you, I can be the mom my family requires.


Technology who art so relaxing, when you are on there is not a sound.

You make it so my kids aren't so taxing. What would I do without you around?


You mesmerize them with your power, and give me the break that I need.

Just so I can make dinner in an hour or simply pee without having to breastfeed.


When there are piles of laundry, dishes and things to clean, you are what I turn to so I can avoid the mess.

I sit on my throne by the tv pretending to be a queen, and for the moment, it all seems to matter less.


Playdates, school activities and doctor appointments abound; I am suffering from mom brain and I find it hard to cope

Then the lists, emails and phone calls that constantly hound; Without my iphone, there wouldn’t be an ounce of hope.


I am in need of more adult conversations, so I look to Netflix, Hulu and Amazon to be my sitter.

I don’t care if people make their insinuations; I needed that 20 mins on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.


At night, we share tears and laughter. Plus, you respond to my every touch.

And I often get a special package days after. Although, I don’t think my husband likes that so much.


Do not listen to the naysayers that condemn you. They know not what they say.

For they will realize that the hate they spew, will come and bite them in the ass one day.


Oh technology, be with me forever. I will admit that too much of anything just won’t do.

But you are often the thing that holds my sanity together, and for that, I will never bid you adieu.
