Girl Talk: Step Off, Stepmothers

For years, stepmothers have complained that “Snow White” cast them in an unflattering light. Pop culture has tried to rehabilitate their reputation, presenting us with such paragons of step-parental virtue as Julie Andrews in “The Sound of Music,” Florence Henderson on “The Brady Bunch,” and Allison Janney in “Juno.”

But in real life, many women find coping with another woman’s child harder than they had hoped. Some balk. Many moan. They form support groups, write articles about their hardships, and even publish books based on their challenging new situation.

If You Must Write, Use This Pen

There aren’t many opportunities to use an actual pen nowadays: Most companies offer online bill pay, smart phones contain an appointment book and notepad, and ATMs don’t require deposit envelopes anymore. But every once in a while, you might want to send a handwritten note or greeting card, instead of an e-card. On those rare occasions, we hope you use The Seven Year Pen, which will last at least seven years. This high-quality marker is also eco-friendly because it reduces waste — think of how much discarded pens contribute to our plastic waste. The Seven Year Pen comes in five designs, but we’re partial to the glasses because we like to indulge our inner style geek.
