The only nightclub environment I’ve ever been to in a daytime setting was early morning spill-over club parties in San Francisco in the nineties. This is probably why the thought of bringing my toddler to a club during daylight hours makes my skin crawl. But if walking into a club in the middle of the afternoon doesn’t give you flashbacks to all of the horrible decisions you made in your twenties and you live in NYC – you may enjoy Fuzipop. More »

STFU Parents:Being A Mother Is The Toughest Job In The World. We Know.

Over at STFU, Parents, I regularly hear from mothers who share a common gripe. They’re sick of being pandered to. They’ve heard enough about how hard and unforgiving their “jobs” are as parents. And yet everywhere they turn, advertisers are throwing roses at their feet in the hopes of scoring all that precious Mom Money that executives talk about during brainstorms in conference rooms. “Who’s the number one target?” Moms.

I’m Trying To Be Open Minded, But I’m Beyond Terrified By Fetish Barnyard Sex People

I'm Trying To Be Open Minded, But I'm Beyond Terrified By Fetish Barnyard Sex People

A few weeks ago when I first read about this case, I asked my lovely and amazing co-worker Bethany Ramos to cover this story and I believe her answer was SHUT UP EVE THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH PARENTING I CANNOT WRITE ABOUT THIS IT IS TOO AWFUL. Hence, I am usually the default writer when it comes to bringing you the truly awful news I cannot get any of the other writers to cover. Which brings us to my parenting angle: I cannot for the life of me understand any sexual fetish that involves animals or the hurting of animals and if any of my kids grew up to have this creepy fetish I would disown them post haste.
