Will You Read “LuckyKids” Magazine?

I don't pay attention to the ads in Women's Wear Daily often, but today I noticed an ad seeking advertisers for LuckyKids magazine. Now, I love Lucky, the women's magazine about shopping, as much as the next style geek seeking relatable fashion (and I even still own the very first issue of Lucky), but I…

Do You Have A Cradle List?

The other day, on my personal blog, I confessed to having started a list of things I want to do/accomplish before I have a baby. Someone in the comments section alerted me to a recent episode of "How I Met Your Mother" where such a list is referred to as a "cradle list,"…

Dear Wendy: “My Fiancé Doesn’t Want Kids, But I’m Undecided”

I'm 24 and engaged to a fantastic guy I love a lot. He doesn't want to have kids, though, which I've known all along, and I'm undecided about them. If my fiancé wanted kids I'd have them, but how can I know if I'll eventually want to have children myself? P.S. I am really good…

Cash & Coupling: How Much Does A Baby Really Cost?

I have two children, and we’re expecting our third (and last … hello, vasectomy!) in the spring. I recently saw a billboard that claimed babies cost about $700 a month. I did the math on my 2.5 kids, and holy disposable income; the figure hurt. The billboard was an advertisement to deter teenage pregnancy, but…

Girl Talk: How I Deal With Having A Case Of The Babies

A few days ago, I learned that a childhood friend of mine was pregnant and found myself unexpectedly exuberant over the idea of buying mini-things for a mini (and quite possibly bald) person who is to arrive in Arizona sometime around the ides of March. I thought this tiny soul should own my mini "Teenage…

Dear Wendy: “My Boyfriend Wants Me To Be More Verbal”

My boyfriend and I have been together for many years and are intimate in every way except one: he wants dirty talk (really, really filthy talk) in the bedroom and I'm not comfortable giving it. I'm not a prude by any means, and am willing to try anything at least once in every other aspect…

Parents Did Not Want 6-Year-Old Cheering “We Shake Our Booties Left To Right”

"Our backs ache/ Our skirts are too tight/ we shake our booties from left to right!" Jennifer and Duane Tesch, of Madison Heights, Michigan, would have sooner gang-banged the cast of "Yo Gabba Gabba" than hear those words come out of 6-year-old daughter Kennedy's mouth. I mean, who did the coaches think these kids are…

Girl Talk: I Placed My Son Up For Adoption

Fresh out of a long, committed relationship with my childhood sweetheart to whom I was engaged long before I was ever ready to fully commit myself to someone in that regard, I rebounded. His name was Stan* and he was quiet, shy, compassionate and funny at times. I knew he wasn't "the one," but I…

How Drinking Saved Our Marriage

I don't get out much. You can tell from the way these sexy legs of mine perfectly match the white background on your computer screen. Even worse, I don't get out of the bedroom much. Instead, I sit cross-legged on my bed for hours on end—my laptop perched on a tray in front of me—editing…

Can Adolescent Boys Be Sex Offenders If They Don’t Understand Sex?

This week, two 11-year-old boys, who were sentenced to three years probation for sexually assaulting an 8-year-old girl, became the youngest sex offenders in Britain.

Girls In LEGO-land Are Either A Cheerleader Or A Nurse

Facepalm. What kind of bull hooey is this? LEGO has these thingies called "minifigures," which are little LEGO people dressed up in different outfits. There's a spaceman. A cowboy. A magician.

Dear Wendy: “He Doesn’t Want Children, But I Do”

I began seeing a great guy about five months ago. I'm 23 and he's 34, but the age difference has never been a big deal as we have a lot in common. We recently went on a weekend trip where he told me nonchalantly over dinner that he did not want children. When he asked…
