The other night I watched a marathon session on Bravo TV featuring Caitlyn Jenner, starting with About Bruce and then flowing right into the premier episode of I Am Cait. She is Cait, but I am amazed.
I was recently contacted to potentially mediate a litigated divorce matter prior to trial, which is rapidly approaching. My name had been included on a list from the attorneys, along with two other mediators.
For too long mothers have copped all the flak. They've been prodded and pushed into unflattering stereotypes like Olympic Mom, Germ Phobic Mom, Afraid of the Sun Mom and the much-maligned Boot Camp Mom. So now it's the fathers turn.
Even the loudest songs can be turned into a lullaby. Change the tempo, make a few instrument swaps and Blink 182's "All The Small Things" could becom...
When you become a parent, that is your duty: you must care for your child. When you become a parent, your life is over in the best way possible. Instead of living inside the ego of "me, me, me," you make peace with the simple truth that you must provide for another.
In real life, Holm is married and father to a 19-month-old son, Arne, something that shocks fans of his on-screen character.
