Taking parenthood one swig at a time.


Julie makes up nonsense at ilikebeerandbabies.com. Topics include the time her daughter found her lube, how to cure a raging case of postpartum hemorrhoids and the best position to fart in. She enjoys a dry sense of humor and a buttery chardonnay, preferably mixed together. Her parents think she’s weird. They are right.


Say it loud, I'm from the Lou and I'm proud!
