Taking a pregnancy test isn’t glamorous. There’s the peeing part, of course, then the waiting, then the rush of emotions that comes when the pink or blue line—or plus or minus sign or whatever—pops into view. One would think women would want this to remain a private moment, like most things that take place… READ MORE »

Going to slumber parties used to be a fun thing, well, unless you were the girl who got her undies put in the fridge, or the first to fall asleep, or the one who cried because they were doing drugs in “Footloose” (that was me). I guess slumber parties were not always that fun –… READ MORE »

Dr. Phil doesn’t want your son to be “confused” — especially if “confused” means “gay.” Not that one of America’s most prominent psychological experts (thanks a lot, Oprah) comes right out and says being gay is bad. The gay and lesbian blog Queerty points us to DrPhil.com, where he kindly suggests a mother “direct” her… READ MORE »

On “The View” this week, the ladies discussed a mother who appeared on Dr. Phil, who punishes her young son for misbehaving by pouring hot sauce on his tongue and forcing him into a freezing cold shower. (The mother has since been charged with abuse.) In the clip above, it’s clear this poor kid… READ MORE »

A New York City councilman will introduce a law next week that would grant pregnant women special parking privileges. Women who are having difficult pregnancies that create mobility problems could get a doctor’s note entitling them to park in no-parking or no-standing zones, without fear of getting a ticket, up to 30 days after their… READ MORE »

Little kids are basically always adorable, but certain traits are bound to make any childless woman’s uterus do cartwheels. For example, a child retelling a classic story, like Winnie-The-Pooh, with wide-eyed enthusiasm. Or a little girl with a perfectly “Amelie”-esque bob haircut. Or a wee voice speaking in perfect French. This little girl has… READ MORE »

My friend Erin and I were stuck driving behind a slow-moving bus yesterday, and to kill time, we started talking about the particular mythical unicorns in our lives — our fallback baby-making guys. Men who, if neither of us was in a committed relationship, we might want to have children with. For Erin, it’s her… READ MORE »

I don’t have any children, but I have a few cousins with at least three children each, who don’t want for anything. So when it comes to birthdays, I prefer to get my cousins’ children, whom I consider my niece and nephews, clothing rather than toys. I often look to The Children’s Place for affordable… READ MORE »

For every step forward Gwyneth Paltrow makes in her attempt to improve her image, she takes two steps back. Though I was warming up to ol’ Goopie again, after that adorable and funny guest appearance on “Glee,” I am back to full GP attack mode thanks to her latest GOOP newsletter. I skipped last week’s… READ MORE »

“[After the birth of her son, Moses,] I felt like a zombie. I couldn’t access my heart. I couldn’t access my emotions. I couldn’t connect.It was terrible, it was the exact opposite of what had happened when Apple was born. With her, I was on cloud nine. I couldn’t believe it wasn’t the same. I… READ MORE »

Salma Hayek-Pinault and her adorable daughter, Valentina, were photographed taking a stroll on a beach in St. Barts. But what I found interesting is that 3-year-old Valentina still sucks on a pacifier.

Jerry Hall and daughter Liz Jagger (dad is Mick Jagger) opened the sale at Harrods in London on December 27. While I guess that’s a major honor, I was more struck by how much Liz looks like Jerry. Liz’s features are so similar to her mother’s that it looks as if former model Jerry cloned… READ MORE »

This is an old chestnut I know, but it needs to be dealt with once and for all. Someone please explain to me why pregnant women are left standing on buses and trains, whilst able-bodied men sit back and pretend not to see them?

As a member of the “club” myself, I have yet… READ MORE »

Pregnancy, for a dad, can feel like an awkward office-party where you’re the new employee. It’s as though you have to paste on a forced smile that you have to wear for months. Not fake, just forced.
