10 Things To Panic About Before You Panic About Enterovirus

10 Things To Panic About Before You Panic About Enterovirus

While cases are cropping up in more and more states, for most children who come down with the disease, enterovirus symptoms are going to be about the same as you’d see with another virus currently raging through the nation: the common cold. If your child seems really sick, then take him to the doctor, enterovirus or not. But before you freak out about enterovirus arriving in your state and decide to pack your kids into the car to hide out in a cabin in the woods for the duration, here are a few suggestions for better uses of your precious panicking time.

8 Signs That North West Is Currently Planning Her Escape From Kimye

8 Signs That North West Is Currently Planning Her Escape From Kimye

We’ve been joking for months that North West obviously wants to escape Kimye. In the very first photo we saw of her, she was reaching desperately toward the camera. Since then, she’s sported a sourpuss (aka an “angry Kanye face”) in every photo. You can just see the wheels turning in her brain, seeking out the nearest exits and contemplating the perfect time to run. More »

Used Clothes Are Cheaper — And Better — For My Kids

Used Clothes Are Cheaper -- And Better -- For My Kids

In the fifth grade, one of my classmates came up to me and said, “No offense, but why do you always wear the same clothes?” The short answer was that my family was cheap and that my grandmother had made the majority of my wardrobe, which numbered about six pieces of coordinating skirts and tops. Looking back on this moment (which marked my hatred of people saying “no offense” and then being offensive), I’m proud of my response: “Because I really like them.” More »

Stop Defending Abuse Because You Endured It And Turned Out ‘Okay’

Stop Defending Abuse Because You Endured It And Turned Out 'Okay'

I’m trying to imagine a situation where I could calmly tell my child to go outside and find me a large stick, take that stick, strip it to prep it, and beat my 4-year-old until he bleeds. I can’t because I’m not psychotic. I’m beyond sick of people defending the barbaric treatment of children because they were abused themselves and think they turned out “okay.” You didn’t turn out “okay.” You turned into an adult who doesn’t flinch when they see a 4-year-old beaten bloody. There is nothing okay about that. More »

What Parents Really Do When The Kids Finally Go To Sleep

What Parents Really Do When The Kids Finally Go To Sleep

It starts out innocently enough. You’re sitting in the dark, trying to think soothing thoughts and project them out of your body. You’re daydreaming about the half glass of wine you had three days ago. You’re pouring a mental 40 on the floor for the version of you who would have been drinking craft cocktails in the West Village until 2 a.m. and still have time to apply liquid eyeliner before work the next day just a couple short years ago. And then it happens … the kid’s eyes are closed. Time. To. Party. More »

Halloween Is Already Stressing Me Out

Halloween Is Already Stressing Me Out

It’s September, and that means it’s time to start thinking about Halloween. The stores are loaded up with their Halloween supplies and I am wondering how much longer I can put off dealing with discussions of costumes, candy, and everyone’s favorite game called “How many more days is it until Halloween? Is it still the same number of days as it was this morning? Ok. How about now? And what about tomorrow?” More »

This Style Expert’s Baby Announcement Is So Perfect That It Will Melt The Iciest Of Hearts

This Style Expertâs Baby Announcement Is So Perfect That It Will Melt The Iciest Of Hearts

Maybe I’m just a cynical old broad, but I’ve never been into those cheesy proposal videos where dudes, like, make all their girlfriend’s family participate in flash mobs, or those memes where people announce the birth of their baby with some kind of clever photo. I never expected to see a “hey look, I’m pregnant!” post on social media that wouldn’t make me cringe at least a little bit… but I guess I underestimated Taylor Tomasi Hill. The fashionable Instagram star recently surprised her 95,000 followers with a baby bump photo cute enough to melt my rock-hard icy heart. And that’s saying something. More »

Former basketball star Charles Barkley was on the NFL preview show this weekend to discuss football because…well, we’re not sure why, as he’s not a football player. But he is a dude who often says controversial things, which is why a conversation about the recent Adrian Peterson abuse charges took a turn for the WTF real fast. More »
