Turns Out I’m Not A Jerk, I’m Just A “No Rescue” Parent

Turns Out I'm Not A Jerk, I'm Just A "No Rescue" Parent

Woo hoo! I knew it! Take that all you moms at the park who look at me like I’m a monster when I don’t force my kid to wear a coat in the winter, or when I refuse to buy them a snack after they forgot theirs at home. Turns out I am what the Today Show calls “a no-rescue” parent, which is the antithesis to “helicopter parents.” And I wouldn’t want to be any other way. More »

Moms Who Are Mad About Breaking Bad Action Figures Need To Just Chill Out And Not Buy Them, Yo

You may have heard that Toys R’ Us has started selling Breaking Bad action figures in their stores. There’s a Jesse Pinkman and a Walter White, there’s a Heisenberg with a gun, there are orange jumpsuits, and there is some adorable teeny tiny meth-making equipment. I think it’s fantastic, but one Florida (damn it, Florida!) mom disagrees with me and has started a petition on Change.org to have them removed from store shelves. More »

Katy Perry Joins Forces With Overly Concerned Moms To Save Rainbow Chip Frosting, Hilarity Ensues

Most families have traditions for birthdays and of course, they are something we all look forward to. However, I think most of us are sensible enough to know that certain things won’t last forever and today, I found out that Rainbow Chip frosting was in danger of being one of them.

My Cats Were My Babies Before I Had Kids, Now I Forget They Exist

My Cats Were My Babies Before I Had Kids, Now I Forget They Exist

When I was 25, I adopted two cats from my local animal shelter. I named them Kinky and Diva and I loved them up. Those cats were my little bitty kitties that I wanted to wrap up in tortillas, shove in my pocket, and nibble on all day long. Just thinking about them running out of the house and getting lost would make me cry. Diva was in my lap whenever I sat down, and I scratched Kinky’s head so much that my hands cramped. Five years after I adopted them, I had kids. And things changed. More »

Science Mom: The 'Science' Of Mommy-Shaming

Digging for ways to point the finger at moms is the hot new trend since approximately the dawn of time. In medieval times, society blamed birth defects on the mother’s sexual history. In the 1950s and 1960s, children who grew up to be non-neurotypical were believed to have been “made that way” by insufficiently attentive mothers. And now, every molecule that passes through a mother’s body, from the time she’s born until she gives birth, is the finger-pointed as the probable culprit for autism, asthma, and ADHD.
