I've worked in the White House, been a TV reporter and earned a journalism degree from Columbia University. But nothing has ever kicked my bum like motherhood. I'm the mother of four young children. I write at The Mama Bird Diaries, a humor parenting blog and co-founded The Mouthy Housewives, a cheeky advice site. I used to be addicted to yoga. I'm now addicted to candy and sitcoms that only last one season. I'm hoping yoga makes a comeback.
