thanks to

I once gave an interview to a writerly friend about sex during pregnancy. I totally forgot about it until the wife of my husband's work colleague came up to me and told me that she knew all about my sex life, she had read about it while at the doctor's office. Yowza. But I think [...]

Bad Moms Buy Bad School Portraits

By on December 12, 2011

Because is there really such a thing as a ‘bad’ school portrait? OK, there is such a thing as a ‘bad’ school portrait and that fact grows exponentially by the child’s age but regardless of the actual results of this annual rite of student passage, parents in general will buy the image to mark that [...]

She’d create the kind of baby clothing my daughter needs. Gaga would make baby clothing that screams ‘Outta my way establishment, I WAS [...]

Bad Moms Love Werner Herzog’s Madeline

By on July 27, 2011

OK, so I know this isn’t really Werner Herzog reading Madeline, the children’s classic from my own childhood, but I think Herzog would readily agree to narrating the tale of an young girls living at a Parisian boarding school because of the series’ classic closing line: ‘That’s all there is; there isn’t any more.’ That [...]

Baby Get Your Glee On!

By on June 23, 2011

I’m tempted to say that this kid is the cutest kid ever caught on video, but given that I have a special bias about this kid and also this kid (groovin’ to Katy Perry, y’all), I’m going to have to resist that temptation. Still. This little guy’s a contender, for sure.

Kids Ruin Everything. Even The Furry Ones.

Imagine, if you will, discussing matters of philosophy, whether God loves an object because it is holy or whether the object is holy because God loves it. And then, imagine your cat videobombing you. “What’s this, Dad? Dad, what’s this? What’s in there? Huh? Dad? Mrow? The question really is, is the cat holy? Or [...]

And Now An Update From The Real Tiger Baby

By on April 29, 2011
Tiger Cub

No I’m not talking about that tiger baby because I’m sure all it would say was ‘mew’ and my heart would melt. The tiger baby I’m talking about is the offspring of the Tiger Mom, aka Amy Chua who wrote the article that started the whole Tiger Mom dilemma. The real baby of that Tiger Mom isn’t a [...]

Top 5 Reasons I Love My E-Reader

By on April 5, 2011

Although I had always thought of myself as a bit of a book purist, I woke up one morning last December quite positive that I wanted an e-reader.  My husband, thrilled at the prospect of not having to think up a birthday present for me on his own, obliged, and a few weeks later I [...]

Mother Goose Never Rolled Like This

By on March 15, 2011

This series of movie posters for imagined cinematic fairy tale reboots will make you laugh, but you’ll probably have to take a minute to think about whether or not they’re real, because, seriously. Like Humpty Dumpty needs Wes Craven to get a scary edge. That story’s about a guy falling to his death and an [...]

Lady Gaga Makes Childbirth Look Awesome. And Also Sort Of Like Battlefield Earth, But Still

By on March 1, 2011

I think that I saw a unicorn fly by at the beginning of this video, which is totally the kind of thing that can happen if you get the really good labor drugs. That said, I’m not sure if this video speaks so much to the experience of childbirth as it does to the sort [...]

Drunk Babies Make Any Party More Interesting

By on February 28, 2011

I would love to claim that the drunken baby rampage featured in the video below happened at the Vanity Fair Oscars after-party, but that would be a lie. An awesome lie, but still. The only part of me that lies is my hips. Anyway. It’s still a wicked funny clip. My own babies did this [...]
