Adele Just Wants To Line Dance & Other Weirdo Pregnancy Cravings Of The Stars

By: The Frisky / July 17, 2012
We always knew Adele had a set of pipes, but it turns out she's got dancing feet, too. The pregnant songstress was recently seen at a line-dancing class with some of her friends. Adele apparently picked up the country dance style after traveling throughout the U.S. and liked it so much she brought a line-dancing… More »


Girl Talk: My Husband At I Are Both Work-At-Home, Stay-At-Home Parents

By: Susan Finch / July 12, 2012
My husband and I weren’t making a political statement, revolutionizing the stay-at-home parenting dynamic or sticking it to corporate America when we deliberately choose to both be work-at-home, stay-at-home parents. While there are lots of acronyms for one parent doing this—WAHM, SAHM, WAHD and beyond—I have yet to see one that fits our family. Perha… More »


Just NO: An Adorable Edible Baby

By: Jessica Wakeman / July 10, 2012
I am impressed by the talent of this cake topper artist who crafted such a tiny, adorable baby face with perfect features. I also think that the person who actually eats the edible fondant baby at the baby shower should be reported to Child Protective Services. Munch, munch, munch. [Etsy]… More »

By: Ami Angelowicz / July 9, 2012
On the heels of the Time magazine cover and all the talk about attachment parenting, Collins Avenue,the production company that brought us "Dance Moms" (which I happen to love, that Abbey Lee Miller is a trip), is developing a reality series about mothers who breastfeed older children.

Woman Gives Birth Alone On The Subway At 1:30 A.M.

By: Jessica Wakeman / June 28, 2012
I am proud of myself when I kill a spider without bursting into tears and shrieking. So I can't imagine what it must be like to give birth on a subway car. Alone. In the middle of the night. But that's exactly what Wanda Dueno, 24, of Philadelphia did two nights ago. While visiting family… More »


The Soapbox: The Truth About Being A Stay-At-Home Mom

By: Gillian Telling / June 21, 2012
I just had the extreme displeasure of reading Elizabeth Wurtzel’s essay for The Atlantic, about how rich stay-at-home moms are “anti-feminist and helping make the ‘war on women’ possible.”  In the opener, Wurtzel says that she wants to “smack the next woman who says that raising her children full time—and by that means going to… More »


The Soapbox: On Feminism & Judging Other Women

By: Jessica Wakeman / June 19, 2012
It was easy to roll one's eyes at Elizabeth Wurtzel's recent piece on TheAtlantic.com, "1 Percent Wives Are Helping To Kill Feminism And Make The War On Women Possible." Although I understand the point Wurtzel was trying to make (educated women who don't advance in the workforce and financially support themselves/their families are bad for… More »


Sonogram Pregnancy Portraits Kinda Creep Me Out

By: Amelia McDonell-Parry / June 18, 2012
I usually try really, really hard to not be judge-y of the choices pregnant women and parents make. Planning on giving birth on your couch? God speed (though I will probably choose to sit elsewhere the next time I come over).  Want to breastfeed your 4-year-old? In public? Have at it! Let your toddlers ru… More »


Father’s Day Field Guide: Dad Music

By: Winona Dimeo-Ediger / June 15, 2012
Most dads--even the weird ones--have one thing in common: their taste in music. After being lectured about the underrated glory of certain bands and seeing them go crazy with their steering wheel drum solos while driving us to soccer practice, we feel we have a pretty good sense of the "Dad Music" genre, and we… More »

By: Winona Dimeo-Ediger / June 15, 2012
This 4-year-old girl has one of the best Ghostbusters costumes we've ever seen (including a handmade proton pack), but it's her fierce expression and confident stance that really makes it work. Watch out, evil spirits and sentient marshmallow men! [Imgur]… More »


7 Reasons I’m Glad I Have A Weird Dad

By: Winona Dimeo-Ediger / June 15, 2012
Whenever Father's Day rolls around I'm reminded, once again, that I don't have a "typical" dad. He doesn't own a tie. He's never worked in an office. As far as I know he's never touched a golf club (except maybe to use it as a weapon?). My dad, in a nutshell, is weird. He spent… More »

What’s The Going Rate For The Tooth Fairy These Days?

By: Jessica Wakeman / June 12, 2012
This weekend, I called my sister to rehash my love life.  Suddenly I could hear her turning to a small child in the background. "Do you want to tell Aunt Jessie the big news?" she asked. "No!" My five-year-old niece M. replied.  "Tell me, what's the big news?" I asked my sister, wondering what constitute… More »


7 Random Father Figures And What They Taught Us

By: The Frisky / June 12, 2012
With Father's Day coming up, we've been thinking about father figures. We learned a lot from our biological dads (both good and bad), but there were also other fatherly influences in our lives who provided us with guidance, advice, and helped us understand what it means to be a dad. After the jump, check out… More »


Tween Waxing Makes Me Uncomfortable (And I Was A Hairy Tween, Too)

By: Jessica Wakeman / June 8, 2012
Many moons ago, when I went to summer camp, getting ready for the excursion meant a trip to Marshall's for a new swimsuit. If the New York Times Style section is to be believed (which I am not saying it is: honestly, sometimes this shit is unbelievable) some tweens and teens prep for camp more… More »

By: Jessica Wakeman / May 30, 2012
Apparently some people are pissed off about a photograph of two Air Force servicewomen, Terran Echegoyen-McCabe and Christina Luna, breastfeeding their children in uniform, calling it a "disgrace." What, soldiers aren't supposed to have boobs (or babies)? Soldiers aren't supposed to appear nurturing? Echegoyen-McCabe told MSNBC, "There isn't a policy saying we can or cannot… More »


Girl Talk: The Bay Of (Guinea) Pigs

By: Winona Dimeo-Ediger / May 30, 2012
It took months of begging, pleading, bribing, and promises to convince my parents to get me my first guinea pig. We lived on a 38-acre farm with dogs, cats, and chickens, but I yearned for a pet of my very own, a pet who would entertain me and understand me, a pet who would impre… More »
