Molly Ringwald Ruined My Life by Next Life, NO Kids
Do you remember Molly Ringwald? If you grew up in the 80s, of course you do. As a member of the “Brat Pack”, she was cast in all our favorite movies. Samantha, the awkward, underdeveloped sophmore; Claire, the self-absorbed princess; Andie, the eccentric girl from the wrong side of the tracks. And who could forget about Darcy; the lovable teenaged girl impregnated by the son of a shoe salesman? Molly dazzled us with her magical powers of persuasion. Whether she was kissing gorgeous senior boys or taming criminals, that lip twitch was all she needed to change the minds and hearts of totally unattainable guys. I IDOLIZED Molly Ringwald; and I’m pretty sure she ruined my life.

She soon realized that between the teenaged girl, motor-mouthed preschooler, and the over-active toddler (who may or may not be hiding an addiction to amphetamines), it’s not easy. She writes about her parental mishaps and WTF moments on her blog Next Life, NO Kids. Julie has also recently started the blog Sober Mommies (sobermommies.com), to lesson the stigma associated with addiction/recovery one post at a time.
