The other day Sarah Fader wrote a post on Huffington Post Parents entitledÂ 3-Year-Olds Are A**holes. I agree with her, and so have a lot of other articles on Mommyish, but even though toddlers might be their own special brand of asshole, they cannot compare to the utter assholy-ish-ness of teenagers. Three-year-olds may be assholes, but teenagers are stone cold motherfuckers. And I should know, because I have one. More

I absolutely love Gabourey Sidibe. I think she is an incredible actress. It always floors me that people have such an ISSUE with her, whether it’s that she is a dark skinned black woman or that she is a size we aren’t accustomed to seeing in Hollywood productions. I guess I really don’t get it. What does it take away from anyone to have someone who isn’t white, blond, and a size zero appearing in movies and television? Do you personally lose a birthday by seeing her in movies and TV? More
When you compare Let It Go to the pop culture musical offerings our daughters are exposed to, the Miley Cyrus and Katy Perry and hundreds of other bubblegum, highly sexualized, auto-tuned ditties about mainly boys and meeting boys and dating boys and losing boys and making boys like you – Let It Go is about self-celebration and finding your true power within. It’s about growing up and learning to accept yourself and loving who you are on the inside. More
I don’t know how she does it. It’s exhausting just looking at her. I was lucky to put on lipgloss when I was heavily pregnant. This is probably the only time I’ve ever felt truly envious of a pregnant celebrity, but I just love everything about her.
There is a new book out for parents that in my opinion is an absolute ‘Must Read’ entitled Got Teens: The Doctor Moms’ Guide To Sexuality, Social Media And Other Adolescent Realities.Â I like to think I’m some sort of parenting expert, but even I don’t have all the answers (shocking, I know) – what I loved most about this book is that it is incredibly realistic and doesn’t talk down to parents or our teens, it offers advice in practical, sensible, totally realistic ways when you are trying to help your teen navigate through all the icky realities of the world, social media, rape culture, slut shaming and making their own ways towards adulthood. The authors sat down with me to answer some of my most pressing questions. More
No parents give a damn about the friends ofÂ Cartrail Robertson, who was shot dead by his friendÂ Darrin Wilson late Monday night. Cartail was just 13-years-old and Darrin, who is now at a juvenile detention facility and has been charged with reckless homicide, is just 15-years-old. The two barely-teens lived in Memphis and looking at their Facebook pages it’s totally shocking that not one adult has thought to put them on lockdown after this incident. More
Today in “It’s all about meeeee and I don’t care how racially intolerant this makes me seem” teenager news, a mess of teenagers all have their tighty whiteys (and I mean WHITEYS) in a bunch because they didn’t get to wear their American flag T-shirts as some political statement when a Live Oak High School in the San Jose suburb of Morgan Hill told them to turn their T-shirts inside out during Cinco de Mayo.

A young girl was visiting SeaWorld in San Antonio, Texas in February and while at the ‘Dolphin Cove’ one of the dolphins decided to chomp down on her hand. Yeah, that stinks, I feel bad for the kid, I’m sure it wasn’t fun for her but you shouldn’t really go putting your hand close to the mouths of 300 pound wild animals. More

Man, I woke up like ‘dis with my pitchfork all at the ready to totally debunkÂ Dr Cynthia Colen’s message aboutÂ breastfeeding being no better than bottle-feeding and then I read what she had to say and I pretty much agree with her. More
I don’t know about you guys but the last thing I wanted to do when I was going through labor was marry some guy, but that’s exactly what happened toÂ Brandi Anderson of Texas when she was trying to get a baby out of her. More
All animals can carry diseases. Dogs, cats, those totally disposable and creepy little hermit crabs parents buy for their kids when they don’t want to get them a real pet, but this report about this poor little boy dying after his parents got him a new rat is totally freaking me out, because you may remember, I also have a new rat.

One of the aspects I love about Mommyish is when we have an awesome fancy celebrity reader who also seems like a lovely human, and I think Jenna Fischer totally fits that bit. She is beyond beautiful and talented and I have totally decided she is the nicest ever, just because she has tweeted some of our articles and been kind to me on twitter. Hence, I get to be a total authority on her, because, you know, she said hi to me a few times. More
I don’t know about you guys, but this is just sort of a teary reminder for me that all too often we just don’t know what someone is really like other than how we see them on a day to day basis. Well, the video explains it better than I ever could. More
