You are here: The Bearded Iris: A Recalcitrant Wife and Mother Tells All. This is my personal blog where I’ve been sharing stories and observations about life and my goofy family since 2008.

But there’s another place on the WWW where I spend a good deal of my time, and that’s In the Powder Room, a very cool place for women writers and readers to wipe the lipstick off our teeth and tell it like it is.

Meet me In the Powder Room!

If you enjoy my work and want to find other women bloggers like me to read and connect with, meet me In the Powder Room and I’ll introduce you to my friends. (NOTE: You might want to put on a fresh panty liner first—those bitches are FUNNY!)
