Anonymous Mom: I Hate My Drug Addict Sister-In-Law For Having Another Baby

I hate my sister-in-law for having another baby.

Let me backtrack a little – my sister-in-law is a drug addict. Before she had this baby, she had given birth to three more. Three kids that she didn’t take care of properly. Three kids that she had taken away from her by child services because she was a terrible mother. Three kids that, no matter how much love she gave them, she could never fully be a mother to. More »

Awful Discovery In Teenager's Bag When She Is Busted Shoplifting, Awful Media Publishes Her Name And Photos

Now what happens? She has to live for all eternity having her name associated with something awful that happened when she was a teenager? WHAT IF the fetus was a miscarriage and she just panicked and had some breakdown and tried to block it out before her shoplifting spree? What then? She gets extensive therapy and support in raising her child and maybe finishes school and tries to go to college and this comes up? We don’t know if she did something to terminate her pregnancy. We don’t know if it was all a horrible accident. But to be posting this kid’s info all over the world for it to remain forever and ever is some terrible crime in itself. More »

Reluctantly Weldon went along with it, until a few weeks into her pregnancy when he allegedly tricked her into taking Cytotec, causing her to miscarry. Most people who hear about this case are horrified, but some men’s rights activists, see a deeper issue at hand, and for once I am inclined to agree. More »

Try To Remember That Mother's Day Sucks For A Lot Of Women

I’ve spoken a lot about the many women who experience loss and don’t talk about it. Well, if you have one of those women in your life, remember today what she has been through – and that this might not be the easiest day for her to endure.

I'm Trying To Schedule My Pregnancy Around A Tattoo And A Destination Wedding

We started to do the math. Literally, we began counting the months. If I didn’t want to be about-to-burst, we’d need to wait until at least the summer to start trying. If I wanted to be pregnant but not too pregnant, we’d probably want to conceive around September. If I wanted that piña colada, pregnancy would have to be postponed until after the wedding. More »

I think it’s easy – when you’re not famous, rich, gorgeous, or thin – to poke fun at the lives of those who are. I mean, that’s kind of fair, right? You get to have everything – I get to make fun of you for it. I have been doing this to Gwyneth Paltrow for a while. She’s just such an easy target -what with Jay-Z, Mario Batali, and Madonna as BFF’s, a rockstar husband, and a fabulous life. And she got to have sex with Brad Pitt. Who wouldn’t be a little envious of that? More »

Having A Bad Parent Has Left Me Doubly Afraid Of Becoming A Bad Parent

Having A Bad Parent Has Left Me Doubly Afraid Of Becoming A Bad Parent

I’m not embarrassed to tell you that I was (and am) a particularly complicated woman. And much of this complexity stems from my very dysfunctional childhood, growing up in a house with a father who was the definition of a bad parent.

It’s not really even debatable: My dad was an abusive coke addict for the entirety of the time he was in my life that I can recall. More »
