The Bearded Iris

A Recalcitrant Wife and Mother Tells All


DON’T. STOP.  My ears are burning (in a good way, for once)!

“…hilarious and dead-on take about life in the ‘burbs of Atlanta, where she correctly observes that ‘the stay at home moms play to win.’ Call her a mommy-blogger and get your ass kicked.” – Life Lessons, Halfway Through

“Iris makes me want to be funnier, louder, drunker and oddly…skinny.” – Amanda at Kiss My Aster

This, I have to admit, is a pretty funny article about saving on a lot of trivial things.”  – Pete at MoneyRemix

“Are you looking for a good tip on how to organize all those little Nintendo DS games?  Check out The Bearded Iris for a quick and clever idea!” – Laura @ I’m an Organizing Junkie

“Absolutely magnificent writing, photography, and love. You are amazing.  I am so thrilled to have a mother like you for my Grandchildren.” – Mom

“Iris, you are like birth control and SNL all wrapped up in one hot little package.” – Denise, San Francisco CA

“Look, even I’ve got myself a big old girl-crush on this Other Blogger… And for the record, I think “The Bearded Iris” rocks. Read her stuff, she’s good – very very naughty, but good.” – Not Drowning Mother

“Just wanted to let you know that you have 100% approval rating among my twisted buddies at work! Several of them said, ‘She needs to turn this into a book!'” – Holly, Atlanta GA

Re: trip to vet w/klepto… Laughed my yiddish ass off. Very funny. Sorry about giving you my toilet humor, hun.  Love, Dad

“Iris, you tell it like it is! And you’re the best birth control I’ve ever tried.” – Lisa, Seattle WA

“I’m so excited you’re back. When your book comes out I’m going to get the gen-u-ine hardcover copy and not wait for the kindle version.” – Laura, Atlanta GA

“Thank you for your sense of humor and being a real person.  It’s refreshing to read a blog that isn’t all fairies shitting rainbows and pretty ribbons.” – Kristen,  Hooksett NH

    In a sea of perfectly coiffed suburban mommies, daddies wearing aftershave and children wearing anti-bacterial bracelets… Iris, you are a real pearl.

    Well hello Iris! Do you remember me? Our children went to school together a few years ago. Didn’t know you were so damn funny! 🙂 Are you still in my part of the world?

      WOW! Hi Jacki! Of course I remember you! Yep – still here, just changed schools (I believe the proper term is “expulsion.” Kidding… it was mutual.) Glad you found me. Thanks for reading!
