I am the author of The Mommyologist, a blog where I laugh at how life has changed since my son entered the picture. 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.
No, I'm not kidding. And honestly I can't decide if I wish this was a joke or not.
Tamara Holland has spent the last five years making the inside of her house look good enough to eat. Every aspect of her home's decor is somehow related to gingerbread. Heck ... she even has a life-sized gingerbread doll she refers to as Ms. Ginger. (Which is just weird.)
Richelle West says her son, Antoine, went to eat a treat out of a stocking full of candy he'd received at the party. But when he took a lick of a lollipop that was in the stocking, he told his mother it "tasted nasty."
And that's when Richelle discovered that this was no ordinary sucker. The darn thing had a bug inside of it.
A mom named Stephanie Arnold is counting her blessings this holiday season after dying while delivering her son and living to tell about it. When she gave birth to baby Jacob last May, Stephanie coded on the table for 37 seconds -- and she showed no vital signs.
It turns out she had suffered an Amniotic Fluid Embolism (AFE), which is a condition where fetal material or amniotic fluid enters a mother's blood stream, triggering a horrible reaction. Having an AFE is so rare that Stephanie's OB-GYN had never even seen it happen before -- she'd only read about it.
And 40 percent of women who have it happen do not survive. But after spending six days in a coma and weeks in the hospital after her ordeal, Stephanie is healthy and doesn't take one moment of holding her baby in her arms for granted. But you know what makes her story even more amazing? She had a gut feeling that she was going to die while expecting Jacob.
Apparently they don't have enough time to throw things together before then. They also want to make sure no one steals any of the thunder away from their big day.
An insider told Wetpaint, "Next winter would be ideal. Both the next seasons of The Bachelor andThe Bachelorette will have aired, leaving the spotlight wide open for Des and Chris to have the TV wedding of their dreams."
Uhhhhh ... if the mere idea of the two of them possibly dating didn't scare the hell out of you -- then wait until you hear about Kris Jenner and BachelorBen Flajnik's alleged sex life. (I know ... hearing Kris and Ben and sex in the same sentence is a little bit painful.)
According to a new report in Star magazine, Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney Kardashian have labeled mama Kris a "nympho" -- because supposedly she can't stop bragging about all the sex she's having with Ben.
