I've been a humor blogger since 2009 -- something I kind of "fell into." My words have been quoted in TheNew York Times, CNN.com, and a few TV programs have even dared to put me on camera. Before becoming a full-time writer for The Stir, I dished out celeb gossip for Babble and wrote for CBS CT. I currently reside in the boonies, but long for the city, the coast, or a combination of both. And I'm afraid of butterflies. (Everyone has their thing.)
Are you and your husband practically glued to the TV every Monday night watching to see what goes down on The Bachelor? Yeah, you're not alone. And don't even let your spouse try and fool you. He's totally into the show even though he acts like he thinks it's total trash.
But believe it or not, watching The Bachelor together as a couple may be doing your marriage a lot more harm than good -- and there's even the possibility it may lead to you calling it quits once and for all.
They're young. They're in love. And they just can't seem to quit each other -- even though the Biebs hasn't exactly been the picture of a model citizen over the past few months.
But if you're thinking their little reunion likely won't last, wait until you get a load of Justin and Selena doing a sexy dance, which sort of makes us wonder if a Dancing With the Stars gig is in either of their futures.
Great. As if we didn't already have enough to keep track of as far as what kinds of things are and are not safe during pregnancy, new research suggests that taking Tylenol while pregnant could increase your child's risk of developing ADHD. Yep. Since it disrupts the endocrine system, it can potentially mess with hormones and things of that nature.
And here's what's really unsettling about the whole deal. Researchers looked at 64,000 moms and children, and they determined that a child's risk for ADHD went up when moms took Tylenol one day per week -- even during their first trimester.
But considering how many women don't even realize they're pregnant for those first few weeks -- what are we supposed to do? Kick Tylenol to the curb altogether just in case we happen to have a baby on board?
Plenty of parents let their toddlers watch a little TV here and there, but they're always careful to make sure they are viewing shows that are appropriate for their age level. What harm can a cute cartoon do?
Natalie Cox couldn't believe her ears when her daughter, Kiannah, blurted out the words "f***ing gazelles" after watching the "Madame Gazelle's Leaving Party" episode from her Peppa Pig DVD collection.
