Mom Wants Kardashian Clothes Removed From Babies R’ Us So Her Baby Wont Be ‘A Sex Tape Star’

Mom Wants Kardashian Clothes Removed From Babies R' Us So Her Baby Wont Be 'A Sex Tape Star'

First, parents petitioned to get Breaking Bad figurines removed from Toys R’ Us because they felt it set a bad example. Now, another parent has started a petition to get clothes from the Kardashion Kids line removed from Babies R’ Us because she feels they are “damaging.” Next, I will start a petition to remove the color “Mustard Yellow” from everywhere because it is ugly, and it offends me. After all, the world needs to conform to my tastes and opinions, right? No? Oh. More »

19 Kids And Counting: This Wedding Was So Sweet We Almost Can’t Snark. Almost.

19 Kids And Counting: This Wedding Was So Sweet We Almost Can't Snark. Almost.

The big day finally arrived and I can tell you with a creepy Jim Bob gleam in my eye that it was everything I had dreamed of and more. Much like Jill, I have been eagerly awaiting this event for months. Obviously not for the same reasons, but I digress. Let’s get started- there is so much here and it’s all just absolutely delicious. It’s time for the 19 Kids And Counting wedding episode we have all been waiting for! More »

Shame On Toys R Us For Caving To The Pearl Clutchers And Removing Breaking Bad Figurines From Shelves

Shame On Toys R Us For Caving To The Pearl Clutchers And Removing Breaking Bad Figurines From Shelves

We heard the news yesterday of outraged mommy Susan Schrivjer gathering signatures on a petition to have Breaking Bad figurines removed from shelves at Toys R Us because of their inappropriateness for children. Never mind the fact that Toys R Us has always stocked “adult” figurines for adult collectors, THINK OF THE CHILDREN! More »

Everyone Hates Renee Zellweger For Proving That Eternal Youth Is Totally Unnatural

Everyone Hates Renee Zellweger For Proving That Eternal Youth Is Totally Unnatural

Let’s be clear: we as a society don’t have a problem with plastic surgery. We have a problem when someone has plastic surgery and fails to convince us they didn’t. No one has a problem with the fact that women in Hollywood are expected to look younger and younger every year – we only have a problem with being reminded that it is not a completely natural state.

Moms Who Are Mad About Breaking Bad Action Figures Need To Just Chill Out And Not Buy Them, Yo

Moms Who Are Mad About Breaking Bad Action Figures Need To Just Chill Out And Not Buy Them, Yo

You may have heard that Toys R’ Us has started selling Breaking Bad action figures in their stores. There’s a Jesse Pinkman and a Walter White, there’s a Heisenberg with a gun, there are orange jumpsuits, and there is some adorable teeny tiny meth-making equipment. I think it’s fantastic, but one Florida (damn it, Florida!) mom disagrees with me and has started a petition on Change.org to have them removed from store shelves. More »

Social Media Continues to Stress Out Kids And Destroy Childhoods

Social Media Continues to Stress Out Kids And Destroy Childhoods

Hey, here’s a new concern about kids and technology that I’ve never thought about before but should have! Turns out there is a real relationship between self-esteem and the Like button. I’ve been so worried about my kids not hooking up with pedophiles that I haven’t even thought about what social media will mean to their feelings about themselves. The number of “Likes” they get or “Friends” they have is a numerical, measurable way to assess their popularity and worth. Huzzah, the internet!

In An Attempt To Make You Feel Old, Neil Patrick Harris’ Twins Turned 4 This Weekend

In An Attempt To Make You Feel Old, Neil Patrick Harrisâ Twins Turned 4 This Weekend

I have a bone to pick with Gideon and Harper, twin children of Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka. They need to stop growing up. They just keep getting older and older, with absolutely no regard for our feelings. They can’t just be babies one day and then suddenly be able to walk and talk and wear button-down shirts the next. That means time is actually moving, and we’re all getting older, and even though it feels like you were 12 yesterday, you’re an adult now with adult responsibilities, and you are not a celebrity kid with a celebrity life. How dare they do this to us? More »
