Derelict Mom is an aspiring memoir writer, also a screenwriter and filmmaker. This is her first blog about her misadventures in motherhood. It is the story of what happens when an extremely average woman takes on the impossible: working and raising a child at the same time. Yes just one child, one job, and two miniature dachshunds. It’s funny, sad, happy and normal. At times it might verge on the slightly extraordinary in her own perception if not in ascribable reality.
