Man, I woke up like ‘dis with my pitchfork all at the ready to totally debunk Dr Cynthia Colen’s message about breastfeeding being no better than bottle-feeding and then I read what she had to say and I pretty much agree with her. More

I get that becoming a mother is a wonderful thing. Many women wait a very long time to do so and may even have difficulty getting pregnant. I have seen a few friends experience that firsthand. But as soon as some women become a mother, their first name, interests, and even personality changes completely. More
I don’t call myself a bad mom in order to brag about how naughty I am, I call myself a bad mom as a way to relate to other moms who feel less than perfect because that’s the reality of life and parenting, and it makes me feel less alone. More
In the ten years I’ve been a mother, I’ve had a strange relationship with the “Mommy Wars.” At age 19. as a new mom, what other women were thinking was the last thing on my mind. I knew I was … More
“We need to balance the optimistic scenarios of later childbearing with the heartbreaking ones so that people are more aware of and prepared for the possible outcomes.” More
Just when we thought all was quiet on the front lines of the “Mommy Wars,” salary.com came around for the thirteenth year in a row to remind us “what a stay-at-home mom is worth.” More
Newsflash – just because we share the experience of having grown a human in our wombs, doesn’t mean we always have to agree with each other. I’m comfortable with that. I like it. Arguing is healthy and anyone who thinks there’s anything fundamentally wrong with the “mommy wars” has clearly bought into the notion that we are the “gentler sex.” Spoiler alert: we’re not. We’re filled with rage and judgement. And wine. More
What is the point? If someone is a parent and wants to consider that the most important job in the world – who cares? More
Parents magazine recently conducted a poll. One of the questions asked respondents to agree or disagree with this sentence: “There’s no tougher job than being a mom.” 92 percent of the mothers polled agreed with that statement. Any time a mother agrees with a statement like that, she is opening herself up to ridicule. More

I hate the term, “Mommy Wars.” My biggest problem with it is that being able to be judged about a decision you make as a mother – to stay home with your kids or to work – implies choice. You can’t judge someone’s decision if it isn’t a decision at all.
Since I began writing about motherhood – I have been attacked plenty. I’m not complaining. I think anyone who puts words on the Internet should be ready to be attacked occasionally. It’s not a one-size-fits-all world. We don’t all agree on everything all the time. And I’m fine with that. I just think it’s hilarious that every time a group of women disagree with each other, and those women happen to be mothers – it’s coined a “mommy war.” Oh please. Shut up. More

Spoiler alert: we all get old. Younger moms, older moms, grandmas. We all get older. And maybe like Kris Jenner , I want to wear something the age police will ticket me for. More
It just sort of sucks that breastfeeding mom feels she has to defend herself against what she felt was “controversial” when in reality, I feel like the majority of moms just found reading about her parenting style interesting. More
