If you're arriving here from my piece in The Huffington Post, welcome. And if you read HuffPo regularly, I'm curious: How do you do that, exactly? I've tried navigating all the information the site hurls at you all at once, and it always makes me feel like Gulliver fending off a fusillade of Lilliputian arrows.
Have you heard about Movember? If not, you might wonder why so many men in your life are looking so slovenly. Basically, we've all decided to look like this now, so that we don't have to look like this later. And every little bit helps.

It's been really easy to feel self-conscious about looking like this, because I went on two interviews this week and spent a lot of time thinking, "don't look at it don't look at it crap she's looking at it."

If neither of these jobs materializes, I will try to take comfort in my attempt to ultimately look like this, which will make for one helluva masculine mommyblogger.
