About the Moo Cow

April 2014

I’m Deb. I live in Brooklyn the Bronx (hasta, Brooklyn) with my husband, Rayne. We share our little house with our son, Henry

February 2012

and our neurotic Pembroke Welsh Corgi, Hudson.

Urban Moo Cow is a place for thoughtful analysis of modern parenting ~ with a side of humor.

Origin of a Nickname

Once, in the sleepless days of Henry’s first few weeks, I caught Rayne beaming at us while I was nursing. 

"What?" I asked. 

"Nothing," he said with a smile.

I supposed he was simply happy that the whole, fraught nursing thing was working out for me. I think he was also fascinated that I was making food for our child. In my boobs.

"You are a very good Moo Cow," he added, kissing me on the head.

Rather than be offended, I embraced the moniker, and a nickname was thus born.

Other Writing

In addition to being a highly successful Moo Cow, I am a freelance writer specializing in parenting, health/wellness and lifestyle content. Check out my other writing.

Legal Stuff

I rarely do reviews, but when I do, the opinions are -- and always will be -- my own.

I am a member of the Amazon Affiliate program. When you click on a link that goes to Amazon.com and buy something, I get a teensy, tiny percentage that will not help at all with sending my child to college. But I thank you anyway.
