Khloe KardashianKhloe Kardashian appeared on the "Today" show this morning to promote the 9th season of her family's E! reality show "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" and revealed that the sex of sister Kim's baby will be revealed this Sunday, June 2, on the season's first episode.

"I will say-this Sunday we are going to reveal it," she said, after being pressed by Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie to spill the beans. "We find out the sex of the baby on the show." No! Really?!
Conveniently, Lauer (who's probably thrilled to be covering such hard-hitting news) pulled out the music-box invitation to Kim's baby shower-which we've seen, thanks to photos that hit the web last week-and showed off the ballerina inside, spinning to a lullaby, which was written by none other than Kanye West, Khloe said.
Obviously, anyone semi-familiar with the culture of childbearing would assume a dainty shower invitation featuring a spinning

I know they're not all girlie girls. Many of our girls march to their own drum, many have that cute tomboy thing going as well - and all define their own category, but it's always fun to notice the similarities in motherhood. As the mom of a hilariously witty, uber creative, sometimes tomboy, often girlie girl -- I thought I'd put this list together for all the other moms who live in a fog of glitter and have had their nails polished at a faux salon.
You Know You're the Mom of a Girlie Girl IF...
1. You do more pretend cooking in a miniature kitchen than you do actual cooking in the full sized one (and frankly, you're not sure which tastes better).
2. You secretly wish there was some mommy competition involving your child's trendy crafts because you're a freakin' whiz on the Rainbow Loom, you make a mean potholder, and you're not so bad with a spool of gimp ahem, lanyard.
3. You have the ability to turn a field day/camp tee into an off the shoulder, bedazzled,Read More »from You Know You're the Mom of a Girlie Girl IF

teethWhen you ask a mother how long she breastfed her child, you are generally relying on her memory. But scientists have discovered a way to tell the length of breastfeeding and they found their scientific solution with the assistance of the tooth fairy.Read More »from Tooth Fairy Scientist Discovers How Long Neanderthals Breast-Fed For
Manish Arora studies tooth chemistry at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York. He told NPR that, "you can almost visualize tooth development in terms of growth rings that you would see in a tree," says Arora. How? According to NPR, "like tree rings, the layers of enamel and dentin that accumulate day after day mark the passage of time. And the compounds in the enamel can tell scientists a lot about the tooth owner's early growth and development."
But one marker found in the tooth fascinated Arora, he was interesting in discovering, via studying the tooth, a scientific answer to how long it was before a child was weened. He got his teeth in an interesting manner, he collected the teeth that children had placed under

Photo: Cogdogblog/ Creative CommonsI am a closet romantic. I watch every season of the Bachelor, cursing out the contestants for the false pretense they don't see right in front of them. Of course my husband would argue the whole thing is a false pretense.Read More »from Glued to the Premiere of the Bachelorette...Hanging On to Love on TV

And in TV-land, I am a total sucker for old flames whose romances seem doomed to fail. I kept pulling for Ross and Rachel, even as they cycled through relationships with partners who were probably better for both of them. And years after everyone else on ER had moved on, I was still holding out hope for George Clooney and Julianna Margulies. I must not have been alone, because in the end we find out they've moved to Seattle and are raising a family.

In real life, the only reunions with old flames I've experienced have been friendly and a little awkward, so I'm pretty sure I learned this storyline from television.
Take advantage of carpooling to save time.Every year I say that we will avoid becoming over-scheduled. The kids can only participate in one activity at a time. I'll learn to say "no" to some of the volunteer opportunities that fall in my lap (no matter how rewarding). We won't double-book friends or family. We'll know our limits and stick to them! Hurrah!
Somehow, though, we always end up in the same predicament: too much to do, too little time. Since I can't conceivably do it all, I've found a few skip-its and shortcuts that I can use when our schedules get packed. Where can mom cut corners?
I'd love to put together a delicious and nutritious homemade lunch for my daughters every day. If I've run out of bread, just realized that the last apple has a bad spot on it, or discovered that the thermos is still dirty and I'm out of freezer packs, a homemade lunch might not work. At first, I felt bad if I didn't give the kids a homemade lunch every day. But school lunches are much healthier than they used to be, and my kidsRead More »from Easy Shortcuts for Moms

Baby Sienna Grace was apparently in a big hurry to be born. Instead of waiting to get into the maternity ward for her debut, she was born right outside of the doors of the Boca Raton hospital and the entire birth was captured in vivid, amazing and completely stunning photos by Miami based photographer Emily Robinson. "It was the first time I ever saw a mother be wheeled INTO the hospital holding her new baby," Robinson wrote. "It was the fastest, most incredible, beautiful, wild birth I've ever had the pleasure to document." The photographer followed the mother Amy Beth Cavaretta and husband Joe from their home to the hospital. This was Amy's second baby, and she knew the birth would be shift, but no one imagined it would be that fast. "When we pulled up to the hospital, there wasn't any sort of panic - nobody thought the baby was going to come right then," Robinson said. "The midwife was out there waiting for us, coincidentally, and that's when Amy walked up to the curb and leanedRead More »from 7 Incredible Photos of a Woman Giving Birth Outside of a Florida Hospital

Clark was a single mom when she enlisted in the Army in June 1994, first working as a lab technician, then earning her bachelor's and masters degrees, and eventually becoming a physician assistant. She and her husband, a field artillery technician named Byron Clark, are stationed near the Korean Demilitarized Zone.
This is Clark's second tour of duty in South Korea; she'll be transferring to work in the Warrior Transition Unit in For Hood, Texas, in June. So her son understood that getting his mom to Illinois for his graduation was pretty much impossible.
