I wrote a post the other day at Her Bad Mother about what I really wanted for Mother’s Day – I wrote the post, actually, to accompany a Momversation episode that I did addressing the same issue – in which I claimed that I was a Mother’s Day  curmudgeon and that all I wanted was [...]

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 [...]

A Diaper Pail Fit For A Princess

Million Dollar Diaper Pail

I have a secret. I am a total victim to the bling. I covet Hermes bags and Hummer trucks and Louboutin shoes and all of overconsumed, underethiced trappings of our North American society. But most of it became completely impractical once I had a kid. No point having a Hermes bag if it’s filled with [...]

Bad Mom Goes To CES And Doesn’t Come Back With A Single T-Shirt

By on January 11, 2011
CES 2011

I’m not a geek. I’m a dork, and a nerd, but I’m not a geek. Geeks are techies who love techie things and who are good at techie things, and although that middle statement describes me, the preceding and following statements do not. So, although I love, passionately, my iPhone and my Sony Bloggie and [...]

Bad Moms Wuv Their Wubbies

By on November 17, 2010

I told you that I ordered it. I didn’t lie. I love it. I adore it. I wear it every single day, unless I have to go out, and even then I dither endlessly about whether I could maybe get away with wearing it to pick Emilia up from the bus if I had a [...]

Bad Moms Love The FIRST SPARK Kids PC Because, Seriously

By on November 11, 2010

I’ve been pretty open about my support of my children’s love of technology. I’ve also been pretty open about my concern over the fact that their love of technology leads them to do things like appropriate my iPhone or smash my laptop (twice). Which, really, constitutes a kind of contradiction: I like that they like [...]

The Very Best Bad Mom Fashion Invention, EVER

By on November 8, 2010

Oh my god, you guys. I want this for Christmas. I am totally not joking. Actually, in the time that it took me to upload that picture, I ordered one for myself. No, really. Like I’m waiting to see if Santa brings me one. Santa always messes that shit up. And I want one NOW; [...]

Bad Moms Know To Not Trust Slick Fellows Offering Potatoes

By on October 1, 2010

Here’s the thing about getting a brand spanking new gas range for your kitchen: you will be so overwhelmed by the culinary possibilities offered by such a magnificent piece of cooking equipment that you will – despite having no talent for cooking – feel compelled to make things like garlic mashed potatoes at 10:48am in [...]

Bad Moms Want: First Day Of School

By on September 3, 2010

Like most parents, this dad wanted to capture the first day of kindergarten for his daughter. Most would whip out a camera and capture one for the family album but not this dad. Artist Don Clark created this print for his girl’s first day of school and one has to wonder, is the monster him [...]

These Ain’t Your Mama’s Lego’s

By on August 5, 2010

I have a love/hate relationship with Legos. I love them? because they are one of like, three things that will keep my children quiet for longer than ten minutes at a time. But when it’s two-thirty in the morning and I step on one while stumbling blindly down the hall to the bathroom, I hate [...]

I want this. Do I even need to explain why? DO I? essay writing It’s actually supposed to be an image on a t-shirt, but WHATEVER. I want the real thing, finger-pointer, toilet-plunger, and toast-maker included, and I will pay CASH MONEY.

Bad Moms Love Plush Potty Humor

By on July 13, 2010

If you’re a parent, you’ve probably had enough of other people’s pee and poop in your life to last you for a while. Like forever. But on the off chance that you haven’t and you feel like your household needs MOARRR pee and poop, I’ve got something very, VERY special for you! From the land [...]

And Now I Can't Wait To Go To Church On Sundays

By on April 21, 2010
It looks like a purse but is actually Mom's Best Friend

One of the hardest things about motherhood is all the crap you have to lug. There's the diaper bag and the stroller and your purse and…oh yeah, THE BABY. There is no more “running in the grocery store for a quick sec.” Now it's a Broadway Production complete with Migraine Headache. It's awesome. I've been [...]

Bad Moms Like Cupcakes, Even Ones With Brain Slugs

By on January 26, 2010

Yes, cupcakes, with Brain Slugs (Futurama anyone? I used to have time to spend on watching those shows before I had a baby). Not real ones, but still. Oh hell, I'd still eat these cupcakes even if the slugs were real because brain slugs can't possibly do any more damage than the sleep deprivation due [...]

No Kicking Penguins: Bad Moms Like Good Kids That Do Good Stuff

By on January 26, 2010

A young Canadian boy from Newfoundland drew a picture that became the 'official policy in Antarctica' for a British research facility in the South Pole after the image becoming popular  on the web. This right here is an excellent example of the positive power of internet. The boy, who is in grade two, and autistic, [...]
