The Daily Squee: Watch A Poodle Protect His Baby Sister From The Evil Blow Dryer

I would have enjoyed this video if it were just a poodle and the baby. That's enough squeeness for me. But add a blow dryer to the mix and you've got all sorts of excitement, like fluff blowing in the wind and a poodle's protective instincts kicking in. [Daily Picks & Flicks]…

Jack Osbourne Dresses Daughter Pearl Up Just Like Grandpa

"The Osbournes" pioneered the family-centric reality TV format, and I personally believe that the entire genre should have just quit while it was ahead. The Kardashians are good for whatever it is that they're good for, but nothing will ever compare to Ozzy's aimless bumbling, Sharon's loving shrillness, Kelly and Jack, teenage Jack's oft-berated Australia…

Romney Family Adopts A Black Baby Named Kieran & People Are Upset About It

I dislike Mitt Romney and his politics as much as the next liberal. But I draw the line at inane knee-jerk reactions to the name of his new adopted grandchild. See, Ben Romney and his wife Andelynne Romney (above) adopted a newborn baby boy. The 23rd grandchild in the Romney family  (…

Worst Grandma In The World Complains About Fat 6-Month-Old

This weekend in the New York Times Social Q's column, a woman wrote in to inquire about how to handle a ruthless grandma who is obsessed with her six-month-old granddaughter's weight: My husband and I have a beautiful 6-month-old daughter.

Your Daily Squee: Toddlers Tasting Lemons For The First Time

Has this week been kinda brutal for you guys? I swear half the recent updates on my Twitter and Facebook feeds have been along the lines of "Today sucks!" or "Why does life have to be so freakin' complicated?!" I have personally cried in public twice this week (one outburst took place at the DMV,…

Baby Wigs Finally Make The New York Times Style Section

When I first saw a picture of a baby wearing a Beyonce-inspired lace front wig -- this was back in December of 2009 -- I found myself disturbed by the idea. Mostly, because the mother said, "It’s never too early for my baby to start looking glamorous like Beyonce!” which I thought was ridiculous. One…

I've done a lot of questionable things inside of a Starbucks, usually involving an uncontrollable bout of hanger, but these people really take the cake. (A slice of iced lemon pound cake, that is.) Jennifer James and Mark Dixon of West Haven, Connecticut, are letting Starbucks customers choose their baby name. Dixon work…

Baby Hair Contest Winner Accused Of Wearing A Wig

This is a story about babies in wigs! My most favorite topic there is. As I mentioned previously, if I ever have a baby, it will be made to wear a variety of wigs, depending on my/its mood. I don't care if you think that's strange, it's what I'll…

A Steaming, Hot Mug O’ Baby Coming Right Up

Oh, you were thinking of naming your son "Anal," and you live in New Zealand? Too bad!
