How old is too old to have a baby? Is there such a thing as being past our female prime in our progressive age of egg-freezing technology and scientific possibilities of surrogacy? Some say yes, some say no. The options for carrying and birthing a baby past the age of 35 teeters on controversial to some. Others don't understand the controversy at all.
Who has time to clean their house? (Crickets.) Does anyone clean their own home anymore? (Bigger and more obnoxiously-loud crickets now, at least with a lot of my busy friends.) Looks like I'm the only sucker.
Can someone please tell me when kids' birthday parties became mandatory reason for parents to have a carnival in their backyard?
The day I'd been dreading since I became a mom has finally come and gone.
It took me two years to get there (as that's the age of my oldest), but I'm now here. I'm okay, minus some shots to my ego and a few silly tears I shed just to release the feeling. I'm told that most mostly-stay-at-home moms (and totally-stay-at-home-moms) go through this.
Are you "political?" I'm not. Never have been. I've voted in every election since I turned 18, but I'm not "political." (I'll admit, the most riveting thing I've done recently to affect society is expose hidden germs on TV).
Halloween! Yessssss. Candy! Costumes! Cowering under larger-than-life plastic pumpkins with suspiciously-smirking expressions. Huh? You heard me. At the grocery store.
Blame this recent New York Times article for what you're about to read. Let's talk baby weight. Gaining it, losing it, and how celebrities on covers of magazines make the rest of us feel bad. Correction: How they make *some people* feel bad.
Shout out for summertime! How many moms wear bikinis? Raise your hand. How many moms wear bikinis that tie at the hips and back and neck, and wear these little sexy stringy numbers in front of their kids, their kids' friends and their kids' friends' parents?
I survived an over-the-top baby shower... thanks to a Hollywood stylist.
