Now that Mother’s Day is over, it’s time for some real talk on this “mothering” thing. Own own mom might be in line for sainthood, but we’ve dated some dudes whose mamas made “Monster-In-Law” look like an episode of “Teletubbies.”

My personal least-favorite mother-of-an-ex-boyfriend was the one who didn’t think I was good enough for her son because I didn’t attend an Ivy League college and repeatedly put down my writing career. This she-beast asked me about my salary and insinuated more than a few times that I should get a  ”respectable” job in finance or law.  I guess loving her son with all of my heart was not good enough? 

I’m not the only one with a nightmare mom-in-law. Anonymous tales from the Frisky dating crypt, after the jump: Keep reading »

It’s Mother’s Day, so we thought we’d share this cute video of New Yorkers (including Reggie Watts!) thanking their mamas for all the special (“thanks for taking care of me while I was in jail”) and wacky (“for introducing me to punk music’) things they do. Don’t forget to thank your mom-figure today! [ThanksFa]

When I think about Mother’s Day, I usually picture a dad in plaid pajama pants destroying the kitchen with his kids in a clumsy effort to make his wife breakfast in bed. There is flour everywhere, kids are enthusiastically beating something in a bowl and Dad is putting a single red rose in a vase. The entourage brings breakfast to Mom, who is leisurely reclining on a mountain of pillows. Soon her kids are nibbling at the pancakes on her tray and her husband tells her she has an appointment for a massage/manicure/facial in a few hours. “Until then,” he says proudly, “you’re off duty.”

Mother’s Day looks a little different in our house. Because our four-year old son has two moms, it’s not always clear who gets special treatment that day. We both work hard all year and could both use a whole day “off.” Keep reading »

If you want a girl to be your mother / go find another, go find another one

So sang the band Elizabeth and the Catapult. Truer words were never spoken. Alas, mama’s boys don’t exactly ring your doorbell and announce themselves. They get you hook, line and sinker with their great relationship with their mom. Then you see he’s fielding phone calls from Mom at all hours of the days or night. Then you realize he can’t make decisions about real-life stuff because he’s so used to her making all those decisions for him. When he keeps his mouth shut while she criticizing you for your arrabiata recipe/housecleaning/haircut, you realize you’re screwed. So. Screwed.

This Mother’s Day, be good to your mama, but stay away those mama’s boys. After the jump, nine reasons to steer clear! Keep reading »

Weird Mother’s Day Gifts: Lip Plumpers, Divorce Rings, Cleavage Pillows And More

Mother’s Day is one of the biggest gift-giving days of the year — and definitely the least imaginative.

Moms, more than anyone, help us define our identity and uniqueness, but when it’s time to honor her, most people stick to boring meals at a safe chain restaurant, flowers or even housecleaning, instead of looking for gifts that express the one-of-a-kind personality of the woman who gave them life.

When you become a parent, one of the first things that you will learn is that everyone has an opinion about the way you choose to parent. From friends, family, your doctor, to strangers in line at the grocery store, everyone will impart their own unsolicited brand of wisdom — usually by telling you what you are doing wrong.

However, in the five years that I’ve been a mother, one thing I have learned is that there certainly isn’t one right way to parent. What works for one family might not work for another, and that’s okay. As long as kids are healthy, happy, and safe, do what you need to do.

But don’t think that coming to this realization will stop other people from judging you for your parenting choices.

The latest parenting trend under the microscope is Attachment Parenting (AP). Coined by pediatrician Dr. William Sears, this parenting philosophy promotes a handful of basic principles with the goal of fostering a healthy and secure bond between parents and children. While the principles of AP have been around for many years, the media has recently latched on to the less mainstream aspects of the philosophy in response to Hollywood celebs sharing glimpses into their apparently controversial parenting practices.

Show me a woman who doesn’t love a spa day and I’ll show you a woman who is lying (or a robot, it has to be one or the other). In fact, I’ll bet every man would love a good spa day, too, if they’d just quit it with the preconceived gender notions. Whatever, man! You need a pedicure! Anyway, this Sunday is all about our moms, so there’s no better occasion for giving her a reason to pamper herself, if only for a day. Moms are notoriously high-strung and nerve-wracked (uh, maybe just mine? Anyone?), so these gifts will give her a damn good reason to relax and float downstream.
