Is there something wrong with me that I totally relate to “Ask Amy,” Amy Poehler’s video advice series for teen girls? Because I still tuck my dress into my panties all the time and embarrass myself in front of everyone, like, every week. When Amy Poehler gives a gentle lecture about needing to learn how to laugh at yourself, it sounds so easy. Her sons Archie and Abel are lucky, lucky kids. [YouTube]
We love Amy Poehler’s website Smart Girls At The Party, which aims to inspire and empower teen girls, so we’re super excited for the launch of Smart Girls’ new series, “Ask Amy.” In the series, Amy answers reader emails while lounging on the bed like the cool aunt we always wished we had.

No doubt.
Remember Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day?
