Every 4th of July for me is exactly the same. Every 4th of July I fear for my life.

The holiday weekend always starts out nicely enough. My husband and son take an overnight camping trip for a little father-son bonding time...

Somehow I missed this story when it first broke, and for that I sincerely apologize. It won't happen again, though, because I've started following the good people over at The Independent, your source for bizarre and disturbing news. It's out of the...

Mom Bills Kid for Missing Birthday Party and Is Mocked Everywhere

(4) Comments | Posted January 21, 2015 | 4:45 PM

First, I just want to say: Who does that?

Secondly, how dumb can you be? Kids have no money. At least go after someone rich.

As you know, this fascinating story about the mom who invoiced the little boy for failing to attend her kid's birthday party...

Woman Attacked By a Mother of Tantruming Child and Parents Side With Mother?

(316) Comments | Posted November 12, 2014 | 11:33 PM

I'm with Natalie Bree Hajek-Richardson on this one. That's the woman who got punched in the face outside of a California Nordstrom for asking the mother of a child throwing a tantrum if she could calm her child.

As a mother I've been in a few scuffles in the frozen...

Crack Is Whack, An Ode to Mom Jeans

(12) Comments | Posted September 17, 2014 | 12:25 PM

I'm not talking about a return to the days when jeans extend all the way up to your neck. Or the time circa 1980 of pleated, acid washed jeans that really highlighted and accentuated your burgeoning abdominal region. I'm talking about a...

12 Years a Slave and Ferguson, Missouri

(4) Comments | Posted August 26, 2014 | 11:35 AM

I watched 12 Years a Slave over the weekend, and I've been depressed ever since. I can't blame it all on the movie I suppose, but the movie gave me that extra push into despair I needed. I knew it wasn't a good idea to watch the movie. I'd been...

Co-Ed Naked Yoga Is a Real Thing

(0) Comments | Posted March 29, 2014 | 4:41 PM

When I discovered there was such a thing as co-ed naked yoga I instantly wrote a Facebook status update about it because how could you not? But then I realized a mere Facebook update was not sufficient to fully address this situation. I had more, much more, to say on...

Sex, Lies and the New York Times

(15) Comments | Posted July 19, 2013 | 3:07 PM

I read an article in the New York Times recently, "She Can Play That Game, Too." Did you see it? It was as interesting for its inclusion in the newspaper as it was for it's content. The article ostensibly revealed the increasing preference among college women for casual...

What if Frank Bruni Has a Point?

(19) Comments | Posted April 9, 2013 | 8:54 AM

Much has been said in the wake of Frank Bruni's opinion piece in last Sunday's New York Times, mostly bashing Bruni on how he got it all wrong because what does he know? He's not a parent. Admittedly, he's not, and having nieces and nephews does not a parenting...

Conversations with Elves

(7) Comments | Posted December 13, 2012 | 4:19 PM

It was more of a one-way conversation, but a productive one nonetheless. In fact, it may have been my son's preferred form of discourse. Michael loves to run his mouth, and while I make my best effort to listen to every word, even I cannot maintain the stamina required to...
