Spike TV’s Surviving Disaster Ended My Worries About Picky Eaters

 Spike TVâs Surviving Disaster Ended My Worries About Picky Eaters

At this point, Ben was starting to eat solids – but secretly, I was still fretting. I mean, we were still introducing foods, but what if he just wouldn’t eat something? Like what if my kid hates cheese and yoghurt? Aside from wondering if I should be getting a DNA test to confirm he’s mine, what do I do?

And of all places, the reassurance that everything would be fine came from a Spike TV show called Surviving Disaster. More »

Open Thread: What Did Your Pregnant Boobs Look Like?

Ok, ya’ll- I am about to get very real with you about pregnant boobs. Namely, MY pregnant boobs, in the hopes that you will all share yours.

10 Cutest Kids In Cosplay

To kick off Comic Con the right way, I scoured the internet looking for adorable cosplay kids, which is a strenuous and backbreaking job, I know. But I do it for you guys, okay?

Stop It Already With The Pinterest-Perfect First Birthday Smash Cakes

Stop It Already With The Pinterest-Perfect First Birthday Smash Cakes

For my first child’s first birthday, I made a shitty little box cake at home for her to “smash” and left the big cake to the professionals at Wegman’s bakery. By my second child’s first birthday, I felt that even that was unnecessary and just gave him a slice of the regular cake that I had ordered for the party. Just as adorbs and not at all expensive or a pain in the ass. I had decided it was super stupid to spend major coin (or a ton of my own time) on a cake solely for the purpose of tiny toddler fingers to mush it all up- that is a waste of perfectly good cake and makes my heart sad! Come on, ya’ll- the babies don’t deserve it! More »

10 Reasons Tacos Are Better Than Sisters-In-Law

10 Reasons Tacos Are Better Than Sisters-In-Law

It’s true that I will never run out of things to compare tacos favorably to; after all, there is little on the planet that is as delicious as a taco (except maybe samosas) but after last week’s rundown on how tacos are infinitely better and usually more crispy than mothers-in-law, I decided the natural thing to do was teach you all about the ways that tacos are better than sisters-in-law, too.

Like This Couple From Delaware, I Would Also Like To Have Sex On The Roof Of A Chipotle

If you say you don’t love Chipotle so much that you wouldn’t have sex on the roof of one then you are totally lying to me, because Chipotle means a lot more than just casual Mexican food to go and pretty decent tortilla chips, it also means SEXY TIME. At least it does according to this couple who were busted getting busy on the roof of a Chipotle located in Newark, Delaware. More »

It Is Obvious These 10 Nurseries Are Not Meant For Babies

It Is Obvious These 10 Nurseries Are Not Meant For Babies

And I suppose I get it- the baby doesn’t know any better so you may as well decorate to your heart’s content but the fact is, your baby will eventually be a child and children like things meant for them. They will not appreciate the $400 ottoman made of white minky fabric that you commissioned from a local furniture designer. They will give exactly zero shits about that fancy crib bedding you had made with custom fabrics that took weeks to select. They will laugh in the face of the elaborate shit you’ve hung on the wall above the crib as they rip it down once they learn to pull up. It will be a graphic first lesson in how kid’s take your dreams and literally shred them to bits! More »

Who Needs A Vacation When You Can Have A Momcation?

Who Needs A Vacation When You Can Have A Momcation?

Listen, everyone. We all know summer sucks. We’re tricked into thinking we’re supposed to like it, with all of these promises about flip flops and summer fun, but really it’s a nightmare. For working moms, it means you get to pay thousands for ridiculous day camps that your kids are lukewarm about attending, and for stay at home moms it means attempting to fill the hours with crap for your kids to do. It’s not unlike the rest of the year, only with more underboob sweat. More »
