Sarah Jessica Parker admits that she and hubby Matthew Broderick weren't expecting to add two children to their brood -- but now that they have twin girls Marion and Tabitha, they couldn't be happier.

When asked if there's a difference between having one kid and twins, the Sex and the City star told PopEater, "There is no sugar coating it. It's wonderful. We didn't want twins but we wanted a bigger family and this is what we got. It's a blessing, it's a thrill, it's a privilege but it couldn't be more different."
Parker and Broderick used a surrogate to add to their family in June, and now they really have their hands full (they also have a seven-year-old son, James). Sarah said, "It's comedic. There is so much organization and advance planning that happens. It's like a military operation."

Fortunately and unfortunately, Cobain has plenty of company in the celebrity parent/ kid split up. Here's a look back at a few of the biggest.

My toddler (who is potty trained) has started playing with his poop, including pooping and peeing in hidden places around the house. What should I do?
It is not that unusual for very young children to play with their feces. There is a certain fascination with the squishy feel, the smell and the intriguing, colorful designs that it leaves-a form of Play-Doh, if you will.
But I am wondering, since your toddler has been potty-trained, what else this behavior, and the peeing and pooping in hidden places, might mean? Has there been any undue stress in your household recently? Sometimes children will react to stressors (and that could be your stress) by coming up with some dramatic behavior that stops everyone in their tracks and gets their attention. I know one mom, for example, who attributed this exact same scenario to the fact that she had returned to school that year, and her three-year-old was not getting the same

When Lamya Cammon , a first-grader at Congress Elementary in Milwaukee, was caught playing with her hair, her teacher brought her to the front of the class, cut off one of her braids with a pair of classroom scissors, and threw it in the trash.
"She told me to stop playing with it. Then cut it off and sent me back to my desk," Cammon said in an interview with Milwaukee's News 12.
When asked what happened after, Cammon said, "I went to my desk and cried. And they was laughing. She threw it away, and she said, 'Now what you gonna go home and say to your momma? ' And I said, 'That you cut off my hair.'"
Cammon's mother, Helen Cunningham was furious and confronted the teacher who said, "Well, I do apologize'" but also went on to say she was frustrated.
Since that time, the Milwaukee police have investigated the case and referred it to the district attorney for possible physical or mental abuse of a child

Would you let your first-grader on social networking sites meant for adults?

I was surprised to learn recently that one of my daughter's first grade classmates is 13 years old.
What? That's what I said. But she's on Facebook, and, as all know, members must be at least 13 years old to join. I discovered this first-grader on Facebook while visiting her mom's page - I discovered she was "friends" with several of her kids.
Of course, this Facebooking first-grader isn't 13. She's only 7. Her mom, who's a (real-life) friend of mine, spends a lot of time on Facebook and she set up accounts for some of her curious kids. Harmless? I don't know. Between us, I'm creeped out by friend's Facebook casualness. Her kids' real birthdays and pictures are visible on the site. While the privacy settings have been enacted for some of them, the security controls haven't been enacted for all of her children.

That's right, Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar, stars of TLC's "18 Kids and Counting" have added one more to their brood, albeit a little earlier than they were expecting.
On Thursday night at 6:27 p.m., daughter Josie Brooklyn was delivered via emergency C-section
as mother Michelle, who has been in the hospital recovering from a gallstone, was taken to the OR. Though originally due on March 18th, the baby is reportedly in stable condition in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in Little Rock.
"The most important thing right now is for mom and baby Josie to get as much rest as possible," read a statement released by TLC. "The family is grateful for all the prayers and well wishes during their recovery."
A few months ago, my daughter Ayla and her little friend were busy exploring a pumpkin farm when the topic of Halloween arose amongst the parents. One mother explained that she was in limbo-unsure of whether to celebrate Halloween in their family. She intuitively felt that if she said "yes" to Halloween, then it would be hard to refuse Santa, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy and so on. "What will I teach my son to believe in?" she wondered aloud. "And if I'm not teaching him to rally around a cast of pseudo-religious, imaginary characters, what can I offer instead?" [She was raised in neither a religious nor a spiritual family.]Read More »from Finding Religion For Myself and My Baby
This question would haunt me for many months after the ghouls and zombies disappeared from my neighborhood. I knew that if I pried off the lid to this Pandora's Box I would be overwhelmed by the sheer volume of unanswered questions about my own faith, and my personal struggle to find a spiritual home.

The other night on my drive home, I heard something on National Public Radio that really got under my skin. Some schools across the country are outlawing flavored milk. And crusading for the cause is Ann Cooper, who I must admit, I generally respect as a school-lunch-reform maven: she called chocolate milk "soda in drag." Cooper, Nutrition Services Director for Boulder Valley School District, has outlawed flavored milk from her district, just one of many other schools to do so. (Enough have banned the drink to prompt the dairy industry to rally the many pediatricians and dietitians who vehemently oppose the ban on chocolate milk for a new campaign called Raise Your Hand for Milk.)
As a mom and a nutritionist I, too, think that the ban on chocolate milk is crazy. I don't like milk-never have. But, growing up, my mom knew I needed calcium so she did what she could to get dairy into my diet, including hiding it in things like oatmeal and tomato soup. Including pairing it with aRead More »from Angry mommy responds: chocolate milk is â€œsoda in dragâ€? Puh-lease!
