Dressing up your kids is one of the most fun parts of being a parent. Here are 10 good sources for clothes for your cute fashion baby. More
First, parents petitioned to get Breaking Bad figurines removed from Toys R’ Us because they felt it set a bad example. Now, another parent has started a petition to get clothes from the Kardashion Kids line removed from Babies R’ Us because she feels they are “damaging.” Next, I will start a petition to remove the color “Mustard Yellow” from everywhere because it is ugly, and it offends me. After all, the world needs to conform to my tastes and opinions, right? No? Oh. More
Let me tell you something about my lovely, spirited, six-year-old daughter: getting her dressed is going to be the death of me. If there is a report on the news about my death, you will know that it involved children’s socks. My daughter is high on the sensory sensitivity scale when it comes to clothes and fabrics, and it is making my life a living, tagless, zipporless hell. More
Yesterday, a mom tweeted Children’s Place to complain about the fact that their tee-shirt promoting the movie Guardians of The Galaxy included all of the main characters except for the female hero, Gamora. Children’s Place, with a perfect example of why you should always have a few other people proofread your company tweets, tweeted her back and explained, “The Guardians of the Galaxy shirt in particular is a boy’s shirt, which is why it does not feature the female character Gamora.” They then took away her right to vote and gave her a marvelous meat loaf recipe.

Apparently the purveyor of fine monogrammed canvas goods committed a crime against preppiness by including a free issue of GQ along with their catalogue, it almost had a sort of, kind of naked lady on it, and this just won’t do, no it will not do at all. More
Lands’ End already makes my favorite comfy mom shoes, but now this forward thinking company has given me another reason to love them.Lands’ End is now making science themed T-shirts for girls, thanks a Facebook letter from an unhappy customer. More
There are few things that make my imaginary daughter Quinoa more discouraged than seeing people who refuse to live up to their potential. It seems everywhere she looks she observes adults and children alike settling for things like Crocs, fanny packs, and pre-packaged club sandwiches from the gas station. Sure, not everyone can turn their name into a verb before their kindergarten orientation as Quinoa has done, but is it too much to ask that they know the difference between jacquard and damask? Charcuterie and antipasti? Pitchfork and Pandora? It’s almost as if adults think that childhood should be a carefree period of discovery and wonder instead of the dystopian winner-takes-all melee that it is? More
My cat won’t even let me put a Christmas bow on its head! This is all just grossly unfair. I think kangaroos can be violent towards humans in the wild and I hope this is never the case with Boomeroo, because according to the article the couple who owns him are expecting a baby daughter. Now the baby and the kangaroo can share clothing! More
The self-proclaimed “largest community of Christian teen girls on the web!” otherwise known as Project Inspired has a wealth of material for that exact cohort. With beauty tips, polls, books, and advice columns, at first glance the site seems like any other teen girl digital haven. But the site’s “Modest Is Hottest” series, in which staff highlight “modest” gowns on various red carpets as well as “makeover” a celeb lady who transgresses, make for more troublesome reads — and I’m not talking about the copy in the articles. I’m talking about all the crazy double standard, victim-blamy logic that is happening among young girls in the comment threads, all conducted behind the shield of Modesty. More
The “Fashion Kids” of Instagram sure are fancy with their swanky boho looks and satchel purses and tiny belts. While the novelty of perfectly coiffed toddler hair is heartstring tuggy, a certain artificiality in those photos is nevertheless concerning. I echo my associate editor Eve Vawter when I say that the adorable images make me yearn for snaps of kids just doing kids stuff, with some “chic” chocolate stains on their mouths and some “in season” dirt covering their hands. Kids have their entire adult lives to worry about matchy outfits and how they cut a figure in a mini skirt. But they only have these years to pull off dirt under their fingernails and chalk on their arms as perfect accessories. And so, by request, here are the Unfashionable Kids Of Instagram with this year’s hot fashion pics. More
I can’t even begin to tell you how much time I wasted pouring over a registry list for my first child. How the hell was I supposed to know what I needed? I’d never had a baby before.
I ended up with a bunch of stuff I never used, a bunch of clothes I threw away and several trips to the store for things I realized I really needed. More
One of the best things about having kids is getting to buy them ridiculous things to out on their heads. It’s just so amazingly cute. You can’t get away with wearing these things when you are older, so I am all about putting absurd things on the heads of infants and little kids whenever possible. More
Now, I am her mom and I should be able to get all MOM on her and say this is what I want her to wear and considering she lived inside of me for over nine months and I let her live in my house and eat all my food plus use my stupid eight dollar a bottle Essie nail polish she should do what I say. And I know if I insisted she wear the dress she would, she is a pretty agreeable kid. And it isn’t like she is pitching a fit and saying she hates the dress.
BUT … More
