Every mom has experienced them, and if you’re not at that stage yet…just wait! The stroke of the clock that ushers in your child’s toddler years also starts the ruthless era of the temper tantrum. Patty Onderko from Parenting.com helped us figure out the rationale behind your child’s emotional explosions.
Moms, it’s that time of year again! The week that kids look forward to all winter long, and the week that parents don’t… Spring break has been underway around the country for a few weeks now, and whether you have one kid on break or multiple home at different times, it’s easy to run out of ways to entertain them. Luckily, it’s just as easy to jump back into the spring break attitude with a few fresh ideas and activities. The kids will have so much fun they won’t want to go back to school on Monday morning! (Uh oh, is that a good thing?)
Who would you trust for advice on your health and fitness? Surely a doctor, but how about someone who’s practically an expert at staying in shape while balancing a full and very busy life! Part of Brooke Burke’s job is essentially to look smokin’ hot and boy, does she do it well! In this exclusive ModernMom interview, the fabulous and fitness-minded mommy dishes on why you should shock your body, the routine that gave her a KILLER butt, and how she looks SO darn good after poppin’ out four (count ’em, 1-2-3-4!) kids!

Whats worse than having to replace your kids favorite pair of Gap jeans? Sure, maybe theyre old or stained or tattered or whatever, but your kids love the way they feel! How will you ever find another pair that fits them as well?! Dont fret! One word can help you overcome the task of buying new jeans and trying to save your old, beloved pair: RECYCLE.
Getting a stomach ache is the WORST! The pain, or sometimes the feeling that you’re going to ralph at any second, is just another thing that moms have to deal with every once in a while in addition to the gazillion other tasks they must complete in a day. There’s no way to prevent those fluke tummy tumults–food poisoning, for example–that hit unexpectedly. There are, however, some general guidelines you can follow in order to stay as far away as possible from the other stuff–indigestion, constipation, gas, diarrhea, etc.
Summer’s here in full swing as I sit here in the 76 degree weather of my Southern California home. I have two words (sounds?): Woo hoo!
So, it just came out that my former governor had an illegitimate child with one of his household staffers over ten years ago. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver have been married for 25 years. 25 YEARS!! Does that mean nothing to him?! It’s an understatement to say that it’s so pathetic he had to go and do something like this–something that he knew could ruin his life and change it irreversibly. Arnold, I thought you were one of the few good guys left in Hollywood/California’s political arena!
Confession: I have 738 Facebook friends. In reality, I would only actually call up a handful of them to go to lunch with or to talk to while I’m making a long drive. I only talk to a couple dozen of them in person on a regular basis. And I sure as heck do not care that that one girl I met in college who friend requested me 5 minutes after we introduced ourselves is “going to work…then having a grilled chicken salad for lunch YUM! xoxo”. Maybe this seems rude, but I don’t expect them to care about what I’m doing every second of the day either!
Patricia Richardson was a very important mother throughout the ’90s. Not only did she help raise her three fictional sons on the sitcom “Home Improvement”, but she also had three children of her own to think of! Richardson played the do-it-all mom Jill Taylor on the popular TV series for eight seasons, but despite all the parenting practice on the show, the 60-year-old still admits that she’s “wired wrong for parenting”. All moms make mistakes, Patricia, don’t worry!
