I'm Frankie Laursen. I write about parenting while living with anxiety and depression. I live in the San Francisco Bay Area with my husband, two kids (Kaylee, 3, and Zach, 6), and our cat Smokey.
I started this blog after seeing The Bloggess at a book signing. She mentioned having trouble doing the recording for her audiobook, and emailing author Neil Gaiman for suggestions. He told her to "pretend you're good at it."
I am on a journey to better myself and at the same time to accept myself exactly as I am. I hope you'll join me with your comments, your stories, your jokes, and your sorrow.
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." - Margaret Mead
