Dina Lohan To Be Honored As A Mother Of The Year

A mommy website is honoring Dina Lohan as one of its mothers of the year — not because she’s done a good job as a parent to her children, but because she’s from Long Island! “We’re just honoring celebrity moms on Long Island,” a spokesperson for MinglingMoms.com said. “It’s something for Mother’s Day. It’s a list of mothers from Long Island who have raised superstar children.” Other mothers being honored are Carol Baldwin (mother to the Baldwin brothers), Billy Joel’s mom, Natalie Portman’s mom, Mariah Carey’s mom, and Jennifer Lopez (who gave birth to her twins in L.I.). This is the dumbest award ever. [WENN] Keep reading »

How To Explain Mommy’s New Face To Your Kids

Speaking of plastic surgery and kids, a new picture book is coming out this Mother’s Day called “My Beautiful Mommy” which attempts to explain to kids why their mother is getting cosmetic surgery. Strangely, the book wasn’t written by a mom who has had plastic surgery, but by a a plastic surgeon named Dr. Michael Salzhauer. While you might assume that Dr. Salzhauer wrote the book out of genuine concern for the family dynamics of his patients, he actually uses it as a tool to convince mothers to get plastic surgery. The book’s message is that mommy is so much more beautiful after her tummy tuck and nose job — and that your little girl or boy will be totally thrilled with your results too!

So, what makes a “quality” argument? Both people justifying their opinions and then reaching a compromise without anyone insisting on their particular point of view without explaining it, teasing, or engaging in other negative behavior. This is good to remember when fighting with people who may no longer be toddlers but still act like them. [NLM] Keep reading »

The Skinny On The Real Midlife Crisis

When my mom started trying to lose weight just so she could be skinnier than me, I tried to support her sadistic desire. Okay, maybe her personal trainer wasn’t a personal attack at my waistline, but I thought once you hit a certain age, you just looked forward to getting fat — I already feel like I’m there. Anyway, when my mom, who I shared a size with, started trying giving me her “fat clothes” because she got so thin, I knew she was sick, but I didn’t realize she was part of a growing epidemic known as Desperate Housewives Syndrome, named for the popular television show that stars skinny minis like Teri Hatcher. With their role model-types looking “fit” over 40, more middle-aged women are feeling pressure to lose their extra rolls. Keep reading »
