Mom Wants Kardashian Clothes Removed From Babies R’ Us So Her Baby Wont Be ‘A Sex Tape Star’

Mom Wants Kardashian Clothes Removed From Babies R' Us So Her Baby Wont Be 'A Sex Tape Star'

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 »

My Daughter’s Sensory Sensitivity Is Ruining My Life

My Daughter's Sensory Sensitivity Is Ruining My Life

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 »

Children’s Place Doesn’t Think Female Superheroes Belong On Boy’s Clothing

Children's Place Doesn't Think Female Superheroes Belong On Boy's Clothing

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.

Teach Me How To Quinoa (Book Giveaway)

Teach Me How To Quinoa (Book Giveaway)

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 »

Children's Book Author Has Cutest Baby Of All Time Which Is A Kangaroo She Dresses In Baby Clothes

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 »

10 Troublesome Comments From The Christian ‘Modest Is Hottest’ Teen Series

10 Troublesome Comments From The Christian 'Modest Is Hottest' Teen Series

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 Unfashionable Kids Of Instagram

The Unfashionable Kids Of Instagram

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 »

Help Me Decide If I'm The Worst Mother Ever By Making My Daughter Wear This Dress To School

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.
