When prepping for a new baby, even the smallest parenting decisions turn into agonizing gridlocks as you try to make the best choice possible for your widdle bundle of joy. More
We all know who this is from, right? Yup. Our favorite totally out of touch with what most humans can afford style guru, Gwyneth Paltrow.Â Look, I know rich people need recommendations, too; they’re the ones spending all the money. But the rest of us get to make fun of them; it’s only fair. The Universe craves balance. I don’t make the rules. More
Yeah, I know we haven’t even celebrated Thanksgiving yet, but I need to start thinking about gifts for people. I love the holidays in so many ways, and one of the reasons is because I want EVERYTHING. I have this dumb image in my mind of exactly how I want my holidays to be and even though it won’t turn out that way and I will burn things and run out of cookie making time and my lights will be all lopsided on my house I still get all swoony over the magic of the holidays and I love scouring the Internet for things that fit this image I have in my mind.

So when I started looking for highchairs, I did my monthly Google dance, where I search for ALL the items that exist in the world for a situation and looked at that pretty Stokke high chair and tried to figure out if it would fit in my teeny apartment. And then I glanced at Ikea and scoffed in the general direction of their high chairs. HA. What kind of parent buys their kid a deathtrap from Ikea for $25? More
Thanks to some justifiable Twitter outrage Amazon.UK has pulled a line of T-shirts emblazoned with the chipper and empowering message “Keep Calm And Rape A Lot” sentiment printed on them. The online clothing store, Solid Gold Bomb, claims they had no idea they were offering the shirts for sale. Because yeah, most stores have no idea about what products they sell. More
I love makeup and nail polish and all of that, but I am just as guilty as any busy mom as far as falling into a rut and on occasion not even bothering to “put on my face.” I don’t think women are required to wear makeup but I like to wear it.Â Jane Daly is one of the only beauty writers I truly trust because not only is she a mom (she has two daughters, Em – 24 and Biddy, who is 17), she is also great at telling it like it is. She has been doing yoga before it was cool, despises cardio, and she sat down with Mommyish to yammer all about beauty and MILFS and how woman can still care about how they look, even after having babies and discovering their kid is using their favorite eyeliner to color ponies with.

Ugh, I keep forgetting I don’t have a uterus, so no baby for me, but this will be the gift I buy for all the people I know who have babies! I was perusing some of the offerings of the 2013 Toy Fair held recently in New York and although the plush testicles are another adorable option, and I so want the plush Breaking Bad dolls, the Mustachifier is hilarious and reasonable and would make an awesome new baby gift.

I can remember being around five-years-old and my mom took me to a grocery store opening so I could meet and get an autograph with Spiderman and it was like the biggest deal of my life. I thought Spidey was the coolest ever. And then a few years later I had a book featuring the Marvel universe characters giving health and grooming tips for kids and I remember Spiderwoman’s section was all about brushing her hair before bed and I wanted to be just like her so I did the same thing. I love that Stan Lee is still around and still bringing joy and fun to kids. I never had a grandfather so I am going to pretend that Stan is mine.
I love the Super Bowl. Not because I’m some rabid football fan, I mean, I like the game just fine and all, but I don’t particularly have a dog in this fight, not including the Puppy Bowl, because I tend … More

I tend to buy things that aren’t sprinkled with kid’s television icons or that won’t get lost at the bottom of the toy box, and I look for toys and games that have a lot of replay value. Junk is so expensive these days, and if my kids don’t get a lot of play out of it, I won’t buy it. More
I think all parents start doing something with their kids that for some reason becomes a sort of tradition that is unique and personal to your own people. Our thing just happens to be a puppet with a bad mustache who has a strict moral code that includes not calling your sister a “dork face.” More

If you were to witness either of my kids when getting a new toy, it’s doesn’t matter if it’s a Nerf gun or a Barbie, both my kids want to get in there and mess with it. More
