Easter Morning Finds Hundreds Of Moms The World Over Politely Declining Offers Of Marshmallow Peeps

Easter Morning Finds Hundreds Of Moms The World Over Politely Declining Offers Of Marshmallow Peeps

One thing I do love is Easter candy, especially those hard chocolate eggs that are like M&M’s but aren’t, the ones made by Cadbury that come on a lovely array of pastel colors. I have never been a fan of the Peep, but I sure do love the cute things people create with Peeps and maybe next year I will make them into something clever like so many of you parents are doing this Easter.

Justin Bieber Is A Terrible Monkey Daddy – Can We Start A #FreeMallyBieber Campaign?

Justin Bieber Is A Terrible Monkey Daddy - Can We Start A #FreeMallyBieber Campaign?

Now, now, before I get a ton of really angry monkey owners commenting about how wonderful they are as pets, I’m going to warn you that I won’t be swayed on his subject. Monkeys are adorable! But they shouldn’t be kept in captivity, especially by a pop star who doesn’t understand simple things like the necessary paperwork required to bring an animal into another country. More »

Would Everyone Please Stop Calling The White House Easter Egg Roll ‘Fat Camp?’

Would Everyone Please Stop Calling The White House Easter Egg Roll 'Fat Camp?'

If you pay attention to Fox News at all, I’m sure you have come to realize that the Obama’s can’t do anything right and get none of the respect bestowed upon the more “right” first families. Well, they are at it again – attacking the first lady for including her Let’s Move! campaign in the annual White House Easter Egg Roll. They are accusing her of turning the event into “fat camp.” More »

Khloe Kardashian Talks Fertility Issues, Should Teach ‘Refreshing Honesty’ Lessons

Khloe Kardashian Talks Fertility Issues, Should Teach âRefreshing Honestyâ Lessons

’m starting to think that Khloe Kardashian might not be a real Kardashian, because the way she goes about her life doesn’t make my skin krawl in that particular Kardashian way. Instead of over-sharing like her mom and sisters, Khloe seems to have somehow discovered how to keep things to herself and then revealing them in a natural, appropriate way. This behavior is particularly impressive in a family that steals each others’ breast milk in hopes of soothing their psoriasis, and smells each others’ vaginas. Well actually, to be fair, Khloe was part of that whole vadge sniffing exercise, but there are other things she knows how to keep private, so we’ll give her the benefit of the doubt. One such personal topic that we haven’t really heard Khloe speak on is her own struggles with fertility. There’s always been rampant discussion throughout the media about it, but Khloe has largely kept it to herself, and only now is she opening up in any detail about what exactly she’s going through.

My Goodbye To Mommyish

My Goodbye To Mommyish

Almost two years ago, I wrote my very first piece for Mommyish on the week the site launched. (That’s right, we’re almost two years old! Don’t forget to get us a card.) I talked about my daughter’s lack of patience, specifically the agony of buying a butterfly garden for a 3-year-old and spending the next few weeks constantly answering questions about how long this transformation nonsense was going to take. Since then, I’m glad to say that we’ve learned a lot about patience, and so many other things. More »

Torrington Rape Case Devolves Into Rape Apology, Rape Threats, & General Grossness On Social Media

Torrington Rape Case Devolves Into Rape Apology, Rape Threats, & General Grossness On Social Media

Just as the rulings were being handed out in the Steubenville rape case, another eerily similar story of high school sexual assault was gaining traction. As the world began to move on from a small town in Ohio, we were immediately pulled in to a small town in Connecticut, where two Torrington High School football players were being charged the statutory rape of two 13-year-old girls. (The number of alleged rapists has grown to four high schools boys now.) Now, the social media bullying that became an intricate part of the Steubenville case has reared its ugly head once again.

Gwyneth Paltrow Assures Us She Lets Daughter Apple Eat Foods Other Than Her Namesake

Gwyneth Paltrow Assures Us She Lets Daughter Apple Eat Foods Other Than Her Namesake

Earlier this month we learned from Gwyneth Paltrow’s cookbook It’s All Good (a lying liar title that lies) that her children Apple and Moses (It’s been years and I still feel ridiculous typing those names) adhere to a strict gluten-free, health-conscious, carb-averse diet that sometimes leaves them with “that specific hunger that comes with avoiding carbs.” I imagine that hunger feels like your stomach is stretching out its stomachy arms and desperately reaching for the nearest bagel.
