I Can’t Wait To Date My Sons

I Can’t Wait To Date My Sons

I always assumed that I would have a daughter, just because I am one. I’ve always had several girlfriends, and I love talking, giggling, and gossiping with the girls. That was probably what I was subconsciously looking forward to in my relationship with my hypothetical daughter that will never be. I have two sons, and I am done having kids. More »

This Stay-At-Home Dad Wants To Ban Play-dates And It’s Just Not Possible

This Stay-At-Home Dad Wants To Ban Play-dates And It's Just Not Possible

Chicago stay-at-home dad Chris Bernholdt is in the news today for stating that the play date should be abolished in favor of spontaneity for kids. I see where he is coming from, truly. I am definitely in favor of the way things “used to be” when we were kids with more unstructured play, more outdoor play and less parental intervention but in 2014, I just don’t think it is possible to ban play-dates.

It's Never Ok To Leave Look-Alike Dolls On Kid's Porches

When I was a kid, for whatever reason, my mother and grandmothers started giving me porcelain dolls as gifts for Christmas or my birthday. I was maybe five years old at the time and I remember being a little confused- it’s a doll, but I can’t play with it? Those creepy effing dolls numbered maybe seven or eight total by the time I was 10 years old and just stood atop my tall dresser on display. This dresser was right next to my bed so those unholy, deadened eyes were staring at me all night as I slept. More »

Yes, It Should Be Mandatory For Dads To Attend Childbirth

Yes, It Should Be Mandatory For Dads To Attend Childbirth

My husband attended both of my, rather our, births. I say “our” not because I am in the camp of the smug “we’re pregnant” parents, but because it was the mutual birth of our children. Yes, they came out of my body, but he was the one who put them there. I firmly believe that it was his responsibility to do everything he could to help get them out, which involved feeding me water through a straw, setting up my Grey’s Anatomy playlist, and generally trying to stay out of my way.

The 10 Best Baby Names Inspired By Beer

I love beer almost as much as I love my two beautiful babies…. although, my kids definitely don’t help me relax after a long, hard day. Even though I love my kids more than anything—as toddlers, they are often the source of my anxiety. But on the other hand, it’s perfectly legal to carry your baby while walking down the street.

10 Things Pregnant Ladies Love To Hear

10 Things Pregnant Ladies Love To Hear

Pregnant ladies take a lot of crap and it’s awful because it’s during a time in life where a woman should only hear the good things. Your feet hurt, you’ve got crotch and boob sweat, you’re growing out of shirts left and right- this is a time where you need sunshine blown up your ass as much as possible, even if much if it is not true. You don’t want people asking if you are sure it’s not twins because you are so huge. You don’t want to hear from anyone that your face looks “different”. And you sure as hell don’t want to be stopped from rambling about all the fun baby stuff you have going on. More »
