Have a funny holiday joke? Share it with me at MommyQ!
Jennifer Aniston has more to say about her comments regarding Angelina Jolie. Wow. Shocking. According to omg! she was surprised Vogue printed the "uncool" remark. Aniston went on to say that was somewhat tabloid-like of Vogue and her comments were taken out of context. Blah, blah, blah....
Jennifer, get over it. I hate to sound mean and aloof, but your divorce from Brad was finalized in October of 2005. Four years ago! You must let it go. Stop being friends with Brad's mom and stop trying to prove how "over it" you are now. Let's face it, what happened to you was horrible. In fact, it's probably every married gal's worst nightmare.
Brad cheated on you with Angelina, one of the most smoldering hot, ridiculously sexy, incredibly attractive woman on the planet. And you had to watch it play out on the big screen in Mr. & Mrs. Smith. (I'm pretty sure we all thought those sex scenes were 100% genuine, no acting required.) That must have been awful for you. Yes, Brad is gorgeous. Yes, he
Today I had lunch with a dear friend who happens to be 20 years older than I am. She has a son who is 22-years-old. (My boys are 4-years-old and 1-year-old.) She is completely beside herself because her son wants to drop out of college with one year left to go. Her son is dating a girl that might not be right for him and he's working as a waiter and......
My mind wandered. Holy crap! I can't even imagine a life without diapers. How in the world will I manage as a mom of two GROWN MEN? (Heart rate increasing. Stress surging through body.) They will have to look both ways before crossing the street without me there to remind them. They will have to decipher when it's okay to speak to a stranger and when it's not. They will have to learn how to take care of themselves and make sure they don't walk around reeking of BO. They will have to figure out how to date women and live with a broken heart. (Feeling dizzy. Scanning room for wine or chocolate.)
I'm not ready! Which begs theRead More »from One Day My Babies Will Be Men?
These colorful, loud, little helmets have certainly gotten a bad rap in the blogosphere. And yes, I agree - the commercial is pretty annoying. But the reality is these things are fun and extremely entertaining.
They're called Helmet Heroes and the proud mommy is Playskool. You can get a Race Car Driver or a Police Officer. It's really just a speaker, some lights and a bunch of buttons. Using his or her legs, your tot gets an "in-car" experience via the helmet.
My four-year-old son has one. He got the Race Car one from a friend for his birthday and honestly, I groaned when I saw it. My husband immediately grabbed the batteries while my son jumped around yelling "Helmet Heroes!" I must admit, my son loved it and we had a good laugh watching him fly through the house, obeying the commands from his imaginary pit crew.
If this toy had been around in the early 70s, my husband would've been wearing it 24/7. I know, I know. I'm all about the educational wooden toys too, but thisRead More »from Helmet Heroes: Cheesy? Yes. Plastic? Yes. Obnoxious? Yes. Fun? YES!
Eco-friendly baby products are hotter than tattooed celebrities right now. Why? Because going green with baby just makes sense. The world is a scary place based on what you can see. Who wants to think about the invisible dangers lurking around like toxins and chemicals?

My husband and I were strolling at The Galleria this weekend with the boys, when we passed American Eagle Outfitters. "Wanna go in?" he asked, "or are you too old?" As we peered at the ultra-slender mannequins in the window, wearing denim miniskirts and skinny jeans, I said. "No, the biggest size they sell is a 2!" And yes, I'm too old.
First of all, I love American Eagle advertising because the models showing the so-called women's clothes are about 16-years-old. Sorry, if your hips haven't spread, you aren't really a woman yet.
I feel like Goldilocks in the fashion world. That's too tight. That's too old. That's too slutty. Where's my just right?
It's not easy to know what's acceptable and what's not when you're a mom in your 30s. I still gravitate towards the younger hip trendy style, but the bags under my eyes, my impending laugh lines and my two young sons are a good indication I shouldn't be wearing it. Sometimes my wisdom still can't stop me from giving it a whirl.
In a blog post a few months ago, I referred to Julianne Hough as a little thunderbolt of heaven. Alas, she announced today no more Dancing with Stars, at least not the next season. She wants to be taken more seriously and focus on her singing career.
Julianne is awesome because she seems like the nice funny goofy gal-next-door who just happens to be an incredible dancer and extremely ridiculously annoyingly hands-down flat-out stunningly beautiful. She's so likable, you're happy for her no matter how skimpy her glittery cheesy outfit may be.
I won't even explain why guys like her. Let's just say, she's cute. Anyway...
I'm sad to see her go because she brings a youthful energy to the show that is refreshing. From one Dancing with the Stars fan to Julianne, best of luck. Look out country music, a smart blonde bomshell is headed your way!
We're all grateful for the normal stuff - health, happiness, love, family, etc. - but what about those unexpected little blessings moms arereally thankful for?
I'm the sweet, innocent, adorable little light of your life - your princess - and I have needs. Just like you, I desire the finer things in life. A nice crib to yell in. Gourmet foods to spit up. Soft diapers to poop in. Plush friends to boss around. Miracle creams. So this holiday season, here's my list of demands suggestions that might make me smile. Then spit up.
Dress me in designer duds. My drooling babbling classmates look up to me as a fashion icon. I may be small in stature, but my sense of style is revered throughout the block and possibly the neighborhood. Play dates call for something sporty yet comfortable like this Juicy Couture Baby Velour Tracksuit. It's only $98. I'm really fond of this Gucci Baby Sneaker for $228. I can already envision quietly taking one off while I'm in the stroller and losing it the very first time I wear it. Fun! And when it gets chilly outside, please keep my tiny feet warm in $50 Baby Erin UGG Boot - pink, of course.
