I Accidentally Got A Dreaded ‘Mom Haircut’ And I May Never Leave My House Again

I Accidentally Got A Dreaded âMom Haircutâ And I May Never Leave My House Again

When it comes to moms and how they look and what they should wear and what they shouldn’t wear and how society tells us we should look and how the media tells us we should look and that ENTIRE huge mom-judgey cacophony of nonsense we are subjected to everyday, I’ll be the first to tell you that you should look however you want. There is no such things as a MILF. There is no such thing as MOM JEANS. Your post-baby body is fine exactly how it is and I don’t care if you are wearing a kitten sweatshirt and yoga pants or a midriff top and you have your naval pierced multiple times, your body, and how you look, and what you weigh or don’t weigh and what size you are or aren’t is no one’s business but yours. That being said, I have so much sympathy for moms unhappy with how they look because this weekend I totally on accident went and got myself a brand spankin’ new MOM haircut. More »

Mom Spends A Truckload On Pink Baby Crap Only To Unexpectedly Give Birth To Baby Boy

Mom Spends A Truckload On Pink Baby Crap Only To Unexpectedly Give Birth To Baby Boy

I’m not one for silly pink and blue codes when it comes to babies. Whether you want your son to live in a Pepto Bismol sphere or your daughter to play with Thomas trucks may be enough to bait The Gender Police, but whatever floats your kid’s bathtub boats. Not so much the case for 25-year-old Sarah Sharples who was told that she was expecting a girl and promptly shelled out for just about every pink baby item imaginable — and then gave birth to a boy. Save those receipts, ladies. You never know when a wonky sonogram or an elusive fetus will have you regretting your highly gendered purchases. More »

I Explained To My 10-Year-Old Son Why It’s Important To Respect Strippers

I Explained To My 10-Year-Old Son Why Itâs Important To Respect Strippers

Saturday night was just an average, happy evening, hanging out and talking to my 10- year-old and my teenager about strippers. Or exotic dancers. Or adult entertainers. Or whatever term you prefer. My son was in a particularly chatty mood, and if you have a kid around this age you know what a rare occurrence that can be, when they put down theNintendo (NO-FRIEND-O) 3DS and decide they have roughly 80 million questions for mom and dad. And these questions had to do with strippers. More »

Super Angry Kim Kardashian Fans Get Punk’d By Fakeout Baby Snaps, Release Their Fury On Facebook

Super Angry Kim Kardashian Fans Get Punkâd By Fakeout Baby Snaps, Release Their Fury On Facebook

Kim Kardashian once again fooled everyone  a few people who care when she posted a pic of her cradling a baby on her Facebook page, with the caption “Love these precious moments.” But the REAL Kardashian fans were having none of it, so they all quickly determined that this baby was actually an old-school picture of Mason, who belongs to her sister Kourtney. That Kim! Such a jokester! But her legions of fans are getting restless and furious that they have yet to see any photos or appearances from the spawn of Kim and Kanye (Who, because I love talking about post-baby daddy bodies, is looking like a total lardass these days) and they have taken to her Facebook to get real complain-y about it (I know complain-y is not a real word.)

10 Absurd ‘Post Baby Body’ Headlines Replaced With Celebrity Dads

10 Absurd âPost Baby Bodyâ Headlines Replaced With Celebrity Dads

If y’all haven’t noticed, I’m pretty sick of the way the media and tabloid magazines treat women after having a baby. Being pregnant is exhausting and having a baby is a huge amount of work! And at the end of it, no one ever takes the man who impregnated the woman to task for looking less than magazine-cover ready or for gaining some sympathy weight or for leaving the house looking like he may be suffering from a distinct lack of sleep.

My Son Is A Really Militant Feminist And It’s All My Fault

My Son Is A Really Militant Feminist And Itâs All My Fault

Yesterday afternoon I was happily doing my housewifey duties, which included me cleaning cat vomit off my newly re-done floors, and I overheard my 10-year-old chastising his younger sister over her choice in movie viewing:

You can’t watch that, that’s sexist. The way those girl chipmunks wear short skirts and dance around to Katy Perry, that’s really sexist. You should watch something else.
