Before you judge me, you need to know that my kids ALWAYS do their own projects, I just... help.
Leslie Marinelli is a writer, editor, wife, mother of three, and transplanted Pittsburgher trapped in the suburbs of Atlanta. She created her riotous blog, "The Bearded Iris: A Recalcitrant Wife and Mother Tells All," in 2008 as a way to relieve the tedium of being an invisible vessel for grandchildren and PTA donations, and has been named a BlogHer Humor Voice of the Year for 2012 and 2013. She is a co-author and the editor of You Have Lipstick on Your Teeth. Leslie can usually be found loitering In the Powder Room, a global online community for women, where she is the CEO and Editor-in-Chief. She also Tweets (@TheBeardedIris) like she parents: loudly and with a lot of apologies.
