The Golden Corral Dumpster Food Scandal Is My Favorite New PR Nightmare

The Golden Corral Dumpster Food Scandal Is My Favorite New PR Nightmare

I’m not a Golden Corral customer, because I have an irrational fear of any restaurant that incorporates sneeze guards in their dining plan, but I can totally understand why people eat there. Especially families, because the economy sucks and going out to eat is expensive and kids are terribly picky eaters so if you can take them somewhere that has a huge variety of food so they can eat little bits of 300 different things then it seems like a win-win for everyone involved. Unless the restaurant is like storing food next to the filthy dumpsters to hide it from the health inspector, which is exactly what happened at this Golden Corral in Port Orange, Florida. More »

Not Having A Regular Sleep Schedule Is Messing Up Your Kids Terribly – So Go The F To Sleep

Not Having A Regular Sleep Schedule Is Messing Up Your Kids Terribly - So Go The F To Sleep

I am such a fan of sleep. Yay sleep! Do you like sleeping? Do you wish you were sleeping now? Yay sleep! And you all need to be much bigger fans of sleep, especially if you have children because not putting them to sleep at a regular bedtime is disrupting their brain development – and girls may be affected more than boys. I am a firm believer in getting a good night’s sleep, especially for kids, and mainly because I NEED them to be in bed at a certain time because then it’s my mommy time out time which sometimes involves adult beverages and bad television shows.

Cleveland Kidnapping Victims Appear For First Time To Thank Everyone For Support In New Video Appearance

After watching this video I’m sure you are going to feel how I do and have this overwhelming desire to want to hug all these girls SO HARD! Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight who were held prisoner by Ariel Castro and subjected to severe physical abuse and rape while being held captive in his Cleveland home have all kept a rather low profile since being rescued in May.

Channing Tatum Holds A Lump That’s Probably A Baby, The Crowd Goes Wild

Channing Tatum Holds A Lump Thatâs Probably A Baby, The Crowd Goes Wild

Nothing makes women go wild more than an attractive man holding a baby. In fact, I’m pretty sure those Girls Gone Wild videos originated when someone showed a group of women a photograph of a man with a chiseled jawline holding a baby in a knit cap. They didn’t know who the man was or if that baby belonged to him or if the hat belonged to the baby, but they went wild. So you can imagine what these new photos of Channing Tatum holding his baby daughter Everly are doing to the female population of the universe. That’s right, the universe. Because I hear even Martian ladies are looking at these pictures on their magic orbs and feeling their own Martian hearts turn into gooey butter. They’re particularly fond of pictures of men holding babies and also some good revenge cleavage.

Your Adorable New Baby Probably Has A Big Flat Head From Sleeping On Its Back

Your Adorable New Baby Probably Has A Big Flat Head From Sleeping On Its Back

Now whenever I encounter a baby I’m going to be looking at its tiny little baby head to see if it has this flat spot issue. Maybe my kids did have flat spots but I never noticed it, or maybe it was because I was always so found of sticking them in those little hats with ears. No matter what science says, I think we can all agree that hats with ears on babies is pretty much the cutest thing ever. More »

We Didn’t Name My Stepson ‘Taco’ But Sometimes Kid’s Nicknames, For Better Or Worse, Just Happen

We Didn't Name My Stepson 'Taco' But Sometimes Kid's Nicknames, For Better Or Worse, Just Happen

Nicknames usually come from a place of fondness. We don’t plan on them happening, but they usually evolve from an inside joke or a personality trait or a happy memory we associate with the person we give them to. If the nickname is fitting it is usually used by others as well. We worry enough about what we put on a birth certificate, and I find it hard to believe a lot of parents are freaking out over what nickname our kids end up with. Unless it is something nasty or mean, but do you really know any adults commonly known as “Jerkface” to others? More »

Poet Hollie McNish Makes Poetic Plea For Public Breastfeeding And It’s Amazing

Poet Hollie McNish Makes Poetic Plea For Public Breastfeeding And It's Amazing

This is beyond gorgeous. I think that whether you bottle or breastfeed, most moms can agree that nothing sucks worse than the idea of having to feed your baby in a disgusting bathroom stall and poet Hollie McNish feels the same way. Not only is feeding your baby in a bathroom gross, but the idea that advertisers and magazines see nothing wrong with subjecting us to boobs, boobs, cleavage, boobs and women’s breasts on a near-constant basis, but as soon as a woman feeds her baby with one it is seen as indecent or scandalous.
