Prince George Turns One And Is So Much Better At Baby-ing Than Your Baby

Prince George Turns One And Is So Much Better At Baby-ing Than Your Baby

Can it be?! Is the littlest and most stylish and perfect prince in the world really a whole year old already?! Why, it was only yesterday that I was standing in the lobby at work watching the Teevee awaiting the news of his blessed arrival and to find out his name and judge Kate Middleton’s post-partum body (duh). And I was not the only one who was excited-journalists camped out for days awaiting his royal emergence from his mom’s vag and now, on the anniversary of that day, E! Network ran a super amazing and fun-fact filled special called “Prince George Turns 1″. More »

K Middy’s Uncle Uses Prince George To Publicly Air His Certainty That Pippa Will Marry

K Middy's Uncle Uses Prince George To Publicly Air His Certainty That Pippa Will Marry

It’s a truth universally acknowledged that once your sibling marries and procreates, eyes will firmly be on you to follow suit, especially for the ladies. For some of the older generation, who have yet to understand how problematic the assumption that everyone will get married and everyone will have kids is, holidays and impromptu visits are often the Grand Uterus Inquisition. Like Kate Middleton‘s uncle, Gary Goldsmith, who used a press moment about Prince George to talk about his own expectations of marriage for his currently unwed, non-engaged niece, Pippa Middleton. Royalty! They’re just like us!

I Love How Kate Middleton Totally Used The Occupation ‘Princess’ When Registering The Prince’s Birth

I Love How Kate Middleton Totally Used The Occupation 'Princess' When Registering The Prince's Birth

One of the gripes I sometimes hear from some Mommyish readers upon properly investigating Kate Middleton‘s chic pregnancy shawls or her many maternity looks is that she is not a “princess.” That she is a “duchess.” While I’m fully aware of K Middy’s title, as well as her son’s title, as well as her husband’s title, she is nevertheless a princess of princessy parameters. And given how Kate handled some recent paperwork regarding Prince George’s birth, she apparently agrees with me.

Prince George Will Be Baptized In Some BS Replica Gown, Not The Gown That Every Other Royal Baby Has Worn

Prince George Will Be Baptized In Some BS Replica Gown, Not The Gown That Every Other Royal Baby Has Worn

Prince George, or “Georgie” as he is now being called, is slated to be baptized which means (aside from Eve Vawter and I prepping snacks for the hopefully televised ceremony) that George will don his first dress! Baptismal gowns are all the rage among royal folk, or rather one gown in particular that royal babies have been wearing for 167 years. Too bad Prince George won’t be permitted to wear that one.

STFU Parents: 5 Types Of Royal Baby Facebook Updates

STFU Parents: 5 Types Of Royal Baby Facebook Updates

This week, Royal Baby Madness took center stage — at least, in my STFU, Parents inbox it did — as millions of people anticipated the birth of William and Kate’s baby, finally. After what felt like two years of waiting, the world was given its Simba. Some people were so consumed with the Royal Baby, they even found time to criticize the new parents on their car seat usage, proving once again that parenthood today comes chock full o’ judgment whether you’re a plebeian or official royalty. Ah, modernity! Social media gives us all the ability to comment on everything, and the discussion surrounding the Royal Baby’s highly publicized birth was no exception. More »

You Can’t Buy The Blanket That Princeling George Made His Debut In Anymore

You Can't Buy The Blanket That Princeling George Made His Debut In Anymore

You mommies and daddies move fast. Little Princeling George wasn’t even named when we met him two days ago. But while some people were fixated on P.O.C’s car seat, others were scouring the Internetsphere for the exact blanket he was nestled in. The former seem to have bought up every single one of those blankets, which means NONE left for Eve and I. You guys suck. More »

Kate Middleton May Change The Way The Media Scrutinizes Women’s Post-Baby Bodies

Kate Middleton May Change The Way The Media Scrutinizes Women's Post-Baby Bodies

I hope that the outrage over the OK magazine and Daily Mail headlines causes a shift in the way we treat new mothers, even celebrity ones. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again and I will say it until my voice is broken: All that matters is that the new mom is happy and healthy and healing well. It doesn’t matter what she looks like, what her weight is, or whether or not she is in the same size she was before giving birth. More »

Gaggle Of BabyCenter Sanctimommies Want You To Know That Kate And Will Used Their Baby's Car Seat Incorrectly

All eyes were notably on Kate Middleton and Prince William as they sauntered down the hospital steps with their newborn George Alexander Louis. So it’s rather predictable that among myself, Eve Vawter, and the rest of the world, there was also the Mommy Police — also known as the rabid Internet mommies who are checking your baby’s car seat in your Facebook photos. Will and Kate. They’re just like us!

Kate Middleton ‘Proud Of Her Mummy Tummy’ Is Sneaky Post-Pregnant Body Shaming Snark

Kate Middleton 'Proud Of Her Mummy Tummy' Is Sneaky Post-Pregnant Body Shaming Snark

It’s disgusting enough that women who are not pregnant and who didn’t just have a baby get scrutinized for how they look and how their bodies look on a second-by-second basis. Having these conversations about a woman who just went through labor less than two days ago ( I HAVE MILK IN MY REFRIGERATOR OLDER THAN THE FUTURE KING OF ENGLAND) is something we all need to refuse to participate in. I’m utterly sick of this entire conversation. More »
