I can’t believe I’ve reached the point in my life where I’m telling “walking uphill in the snow” stories – but here goes: when we were kids we were allowed to ask for ONE thing that we really wanted for Christmas. Then we would wish and pray and hope that either Santa or one of our parents would understand our immense desire to own this thing – and present it to us on Christmas. More

Parents are usually so busy worrying about the perfect gifts to buy people and when it comes time for mom or dad to open up their gift a lot of the time they get something dumb they don’t even want. Okay, that isn’t ALWAYS the case but I have heard some horror stories about people who have ended up getting a blender or a scale for Christmas when it wasn’t even on their list. More
I am a huge fan of gifts that kids actually play with, that keep them busy, that give you a few extra minutes to do some of the amazingly selfish and terrible things parents want to do alone: pee, take out the trash, write a grocery list, empty the dishwasher. You know, all those wonderful things we get to enjoy while our kids are occupied. Here are 10 awesome gift ideas that will keep your kids busy while you get all wild and make yourself some toast or something. More
Babies and toddlers, she explained, will never remember these first few Christmases. Relax, she told me. Wrap up a box of Cheerios and a box of Band-Aids and call it a day. The baby gets a snack and something fun to stick all over herself and you get to skip a trip to the mall to battle it out over a toy that your daughter knows nothing about. More
Kids that don’t get what they want on Christmas morning—after waiting all year for a shiny new bike or pouring out their heart and soul to Santa—aren’t necessarily experts at hiding their emotions. Even worse is watching a kid open a pack of socks from Great Aunt Mildred in her presence. Feelings are probably going to get hurt, and someone’s going to end up on the Naughty List before the day is done. More
Most of you have all ready started your holiday shopping, and some of you may have a mom with a newborn baby you need to buy something for this Christmas! Most shopping guides will suggest great things for new moms like nipple salve or a cozy throw blanket or maybe even something both mom and baby can enjoy, like a baby food machine! Sure, you can always buy a new mom something like one of those birthstone necklaces or a T-shirt that reads YUMMY MUMMY on it, but here are 9 great gift ideas for moms of a newborn you may not have thought of!

Yes, holiday shopping is here- so pull out your wallet and hand over that credit card to spread joy and frustration-free packing to your loved ones! However, if you are like me, there may be a line in your budget for a few “rage shopping” items for people who have done you wrong in the last year. For my extended family, passive aggressive gift giving is a skill you hone the whole year through. So while drum kits and Moon Sand will do in a pinch, here are some other suggestions for those you are wishing a “Happy Freakin Holiday” to.
I am truly starting to hate what the holiday season has become. If you need a gift registry for your children because you have so many relatives throwing toys at them during the holiday season, maybe a simple, “they really don’t need anything” would do. More
It’s becoming an annual tradition. The day after Christmas, we round up lists of teenagers who are disappointed with their holiday gifts. But for a second, can we all just acknowledge that teenagers have always been whiny jerks, they just didn’t have such a large platform to share their crappy attitudes? More

You may think I’m a bad or not fun mom and that I am just as mean as my own parents were when I was a kid, but at least I didn’t buy her the house and then snatch it away to be exchanged for some Colorforms or something. She can’t pine for something she never had. More
Before your children open every single thing under the tree, go grab two unopened presents and put them on top of your refrigerator. Or in your closet. Or on the mantle. Got it? Good. Carry on and enjoy the festivities. Open the gifts. Have some lovely breakfast. Have a mimosa. Or two.
The holiday season has every parent considering the best toys to give their good little boys and girls. Lately, we’ve thought a lot about toys that look like weapons, and whether they’re the right choice for our kids. But no toy discussion is complete without a mention of gender balance. And in the increasingly gendered world of children’s toys, my family’s solution is simply to provide a wide range of girls’ and boys’ toys, then let my daughter choose what to play with. More
