My Mom Hogs Hosting Holiday Events, And I’m Fine With That

My Mom Hogs Hosting Holiday Events, And I'm Fine With That

I am 32 years old. My husband and I have owned a home for close to a decade. We have two children and we both have full-time jobs. We keep our house tidy most weeks, we are organized and I am a pretty good cook. On paper, we are legitimate grown-ups in every way and more than capable of hosting a holiday but I have absolutely less than zero desire. My mom hogs hosting holiday events and because of how amazing she is at it (and out of pure laziness) I have no problem with that at all.

I Have Big Halloween Ideas, But No Follow-Through

I Have Big Halloween Ideas, But No Follow-Through

It’s not as if I’m some helpless kitten when it comes to costuming. I have a sewing machine and I know how to use it, but somehow I only seem to manage to drag it up from the basement when there’s a pair of pants that needs re-seaming. I can knit, I can paint, I am handy with a hot glue gun. There is absolutely no reason for me to fail at DIY costuming, except that I cannot seem to actually start doing the thing myself. More »

Homophobe Attacks Man For Wearing A Pink Shirt Because, AMERICA!

Homophobe Attacks Man For Wearing A Pink Shirt Because, AMERICA!

An angry homophobe was caught on video at Dallas/Fort Worth airport attacking a man who had the nerve to wear a pink shirt. This man’s crack detective work determined that this must mean the pink shirt-wearer is gay and therefore, deserved his brand of freak-show, vigilante justice. Luckily, the crowd intervened and airport police came to restrain this lunatic but not before he got a chance to tell the world exactly why he felt justified in what he did. More »

This Week In Public Breastfeeding Shaming: Creepy Deli Worker Photographs Mom

This Week In Public Breastfeeding Shaming: Creepy Deli Worker Photographs Mom

Stories of women being shamed for public breastfeeding are so rampant these days I could probably start a weekly column. How depressing. This week a woman wasn’t actually told to leave an establishment, a creepy employee just took it upon himself to photograph her while she was breastfeeding. I’m sure he had the best of intentions. He was probably planning on uploading it to La Leche League’s Facebook page or something. More »

I CAN’T WAIT For Elf On The Shelf, Fa-La-La-La-La-La-La-La-Laaaaaa

I CAN'T WAIT For Elf On The Shelf, Fa-La-La-La-La-La-La-La-Laaaaaa

I didn’t have a ton of holiday traditions growing up. Having a less than perfect childhood makes me a sucker for anything trendy when it comes to the holidays. So even though most parents seem to enjoy the Elf on the Shelf only when making him perform unspeakable acts or just loathe him outright, I have several reasons why I am jingle bell-ing myself with excitement over starting the the Elf On A Shelf tradition with my kids this year.
