I was pregnant once. Three times actually. And, seriously, there are some really annoying people out there. Yes, most people are awesome. But some are just really, really annoying — and I wrote about those folks for the Huffington Post today. If you’d like to study, here’s the link. Test tomorrow!
I did a rhyme-y thing for the Huffington Post called “The Year in Review in Parenting in Rhyme" or something like that. Maybe I should have said it was a rap? Raps are cool. Shoot. Shoot. Shoot. It’s too late. It’s not a rap. Ugh. I blew it.
Please read it anyway. I beg you. I’m literally on my knees right now begging you to read it. It’s hard to type because I’m on my knees and my laptop is on the table, and I can barely reach.
I have a friend named Cindy Kaplan who is doing something truly incredible. For Thanksgiving, I wanted to write about her work. If you have time today, here’s a link to the Huffington Post story.
At least, I am for today. What qualifies me to call myself one? The same thing that qualifies all those other people who call themselves that. Nothing in particular.
But, I do have some tips over at the Huffington Post for updating your lonely Facebook page now that the election is over. Because, the election is over, right? I’ve been kind of busy this week and haven’t caught up on the news yet.
Are you ready for tomorrow’s water cooler anecdote? According to a story on Huffington Post Parents, this mother gave birth to twins last night in Kenya. She named the brothers, Barack Obama and Mitt Romney.
Of course, this NOW makes the Birther Theory Morons right. Barack Obama was born in Kenya. And Mitt Romney was born in Kenya last night, too.
(On an unrelated note, does the Donald J. Trump clothing line at Macy’s sell well? And, if yes, that’s gross. Fun fact: the J is for Jackass.)
I have a new essay up on Huffington Post today about why I think it’s time to stop paying so much attention to Suri Cruise. Of course, I almost posted a picture to illustrate it. And then, I realized, well, that’s a bit hypocritical. So, no picture. Just a post. I hope you’ll read it and then go through the phone book at random calling strangers and asking them to read it as well…
I wrote a thing called Why Toddlers Are (Almost) Exactly Like Superheroes. It’s now on the Huffington Post. Even if you read it here a few weeks ago, it’s more fun to read it there today.
If I were you, I would go and take a look. I might leave a comment like, “Ha ha! Ouch. My sides. Best thing ever written!” Then, I would take a nap. I don’t know if you’re tired or not but there’s nothing like a nap, right?
I hate this Nutrisystem ad soooooo much. I saw it a long time ago in a magazine while I was getting a relaxing pedicure, and it made me want to throw things, which is not a relaxing feeling.
Jillian Barberie is pregnant in the first picture. But — and it’s a big but — the ad makes no mention of the pregnancy. None! There’s no mention of the pregnancy! It just says, “Results Not Typical.” Results Not Typical! You bet your ass that those results aren’t typical! If you were pregnant and had a baby and lost any weight, that’s not weight loss. That’s having a baby. If you have to give it a name and a social security number, that’s not weight loss.
I’m bringing this up because Devon Corneal wrote a great essay on pregnancy weight (and loss) for the Huffington Post today. Here’s that link.
While you’re here and this has nothing to do with anything, can magazines and blogs please stop documenting Suri Cruise’s every move? She had ice cream! Here she is on a play date! She’s at the park! Have a peek inside her pediatrician’s window!
Okay, I have to go find a towel to wipe the foam that’s building up on the sides of my mouth because I’m on a rant.
