The world is now very aware that Duchess Kate and her husband Prince William are expecting their second child. We have already scrutinized her for her weight and speculated about her health due to her diagnosis of hyperemisis gravidarum so now, it’s on to what they will name the newest royal tot. More

Who lives in a pineapple under the sea and wants to corrupt your child’s soul? If you believe Kazakhstan’s education ministry, it is the one and only Saturday morning child distraction method otherwise known as SpongeBob Squarepants. When you are finished laughing, keep reading to find out why Kazakhstan warns against Spongebob and feels he is a grave threat to your children in all of his yellow, absorbent glory. More
Paige Smith, an either grader atÂ Gladewater Middle School in Texas, is revolutionizing the role of women on the football field as a linebacker on her school’s team. It’s not unheard of for girls to join their high school or college football teams, but rarely do they play linebacker. In case you’re someone who has no idea what’s happening on a football field (ie: ME), a linebacker is the person who tackles the sh*t out of people. They’re tough, agile, aggressive and are constantly running into the opposing players. In Paige’s case, she took some of her competitors by surprise. “They’re like, ‘No way, you’re going to get yourself run over,’” she told KTRK-TV. “And all of a sudden I’m running them over.” More
A Latin-American author is suing Disney, saying the company ripped off her autobiographical novel to make their blockbuster film, Frozen. I found her novel. She does have a sister and has been to a cold mountain, so there’s that.
Do you have a picky eater at your house? Are you stifling another profane tirade every time your little angel turns up his nose at broccoli, or demands her usual meal of exactly three bites of Kraft Easy Mac and peanut butter toast (sans crust)? Then before you undergo a mid-kitchen meltdown, you need to get your hands on a copy of the sequel to Go The Fuck To Sleep, the fabulously-named You Have To Fucking Eat. And so do I. Everyone needs to get their hands on a copy. (Except your kids. Your kids probably should not have a copy of this book.) More
Iâ€™ve caught myself looking at my watch a lot recently, and I just figured out why â€”Â itâ€™s been a full weekÂ since we found out thatÂ Eva MendesÂ andÂ Ryan Goslingâ€˜s baby had been born (and almost two since her actual birthday on September 12th!), and we still donâ€™t have a nameÂ orÂ a photo of her. EnterÂ Ellen DeGeneres. More
Ah, the Duggars. Loyal Mommyish readers know that this family is a topic close to my heart. I actually do like watching the show sometimes- the kids can be such sweethearts and it is clear they all love each other very much but of course, there is a lot to criticize too. However, it can be hard to love them or hate them if you can’t tell Jermajesty Duggar from Jeremiah Duggar (tricked ya there…no Jermajesty…yet). More
The announcement was met with a Twitter-storm of fury with park fans wanting the 26-year old attraction to stay right where it is. Frankly, I do not see the big deal with Frozen replacing classic ride Maelstrom at Epcot because the goal of the Disney parks is clearly, to make money. More
There has been a dearth of good news on the “superheroes are for girls, too” front of late. A female-led Marvel movie isn’t on the cards as far out as 2017, which will bring the tally of Marvel Cinematic Universe films headlined by male actors to female actors up to an impressive 15:0. Wonder Woman will finally make a big screen debut in 2016, but only by playing third fiddle to Batman and Superman. Female characters get left off of team t-shirts and out of toy sets. The situation as a whole is an egregious mess, which is why it’s so nice to get some good news once in a while, and the good news this time is that CBS has greenlit a Supergirl TV series. More
A mom going by the name “proudhousewife” on FanFiction.net is rewriting the Harry Potter books so that they’re all about Christianity. “Do you want your little ones to read books; and they want to read the Harry Potter Books; but you do not want them to turn into witches?,” reads her bio. “Well-this is the story for you!”I guess those of us who DO want our kids to turn into witches should just kept reading the boring old Potter books and hope for the best.

With all of the baby making that has gone on in the Duggar family, you’d think they would know how to craft a registry. Well, you would be wrong. I just took a gander at it, and it is really bizarre.Â Since my favorite thing is speculating about the Duggars, and I really need to make sense of this senseless registry, I can only come to one conclusion; the couple got paid to list a bunch of weird junk on the registry. It’s really the only theory that makes sense. More
It’s not so much that NBC’s new working mom/cop dramedy The Mysteries of Laura is terrible as it is hellishly boring. It’s an hour of Debra Messing making flustered facial expressions while wearing sweat pants, and it’s hard to stay focused on a storyline that has the energy and excitement of a snail taking a dump. Reviewers tore Mysteries 1000 new a-holes, with Vulture went so far as to title their review: “The Mysteries of Laura Is a Bad Show. Itâ€™s a Bad, Bad Show.” So you get what we’re working with here.

Movies I loved in childhood, from The Little Mermaid to Back to the Future to Crooklyn, take on a whole new meaning once you start identifying with the parents instead of the kids. Shakespeare probably wasn’t thinking much about Signoras Capulet and Montague when he wrote Romeo and Juliet, but these classic tales and modern teen romps are suddenly horror films, minefields of fears I’d never thought of before (because I really needed more of those). There are some flicks I’ll never see the same way again.
