Meet the Moms

We are a group of smart, funny, sassy Gen X moms rockin’ out to totally radical 80’s music, hiding pictures of ourselves with mile-high bangs, refraining from kicking doctors when they say the words “Advanced Maternal Age,” and blogging about life as a mommy over 30.

The Scrivener

Shelby lives in Anaheim, California with Mouse, her 1-year-old, Train Guy, her husband, and two beagles: Scout and Digory. She spends most of her day sitting around thinking of funny things to say, and the rest of the time she can be found in the kitchen cooking bacon. Shelby enjoys reading, travel and long walks on the beach. She also likes the word “scrivener” because it sounds much more sophisticated than its more plebeian counterpart, “writer.”

The Photo Addict

Renee is the executive assistant to her 2 two sons Big E age 11 and Little C age 3.  She is married and resides in Fullerton, California.  When she’s not attending playdates, acting as a shuttle driver or executive chef at home, she is a photographer and owns her own company, Sprouts Photography.

The Librarian

Ruth is a married thirty-something stay-at-home mom and jack of all trades for her 4-year-old son. Long, long ago in the before times, she was a children’s librarian and later worked as a web manager and software trainer for a lobbying organization in downtown DC. She has since made the switch from East Coast to West and currently resides in Southern California where she enjoys all those sunny days where her kid can be outside instead of tearing up the house. Ruth is also a proud Cal alumnus. Go Bears!

The Legal Eagle

Melissa lives in Los Alamitos, CA with her high school sweetheart/hubby, their almost 3-year-old daughter, The Big Cheese, and their 1-year-old daughter, Bugster.  In her former life, Melissa was a family law attorney and civil litigator, but an extended maternity leave showed her how little she missed it.  Now, when she isn’t changing diapers or answering calls of, “Mommy, I have to go potty,” Melissa is taking a writing course, reading anything she can get her hands on, and watching her guilty pleasures on TV (aka Grey’s Anatomy, Glee, Project Runway).  She used to be a big movie fan, but doesn’t have the time — or the babysitter! — for those anymore.  Not a native of Southern California, Melissa hails from western Michigan, Pennsylvania, Georgia, and Tennessee.

  5. Really enjoy your blog! I’m a 36 mom of an almost 7-year-old. I feel young enough to still be living in the ’80’s but old enough to have learned from my fashion and hair mistakes.
