I have strung words together for Kiwi Magazine, Babble.com, AOL, Parents Magazine and more. I live in upstate New York with my daughter, husband, dogs, and too many cats. I rock a cool 'do because I shave my head most years to fight children's cancer with the St. Baldrick's Foundation.

Though my daughter is officially an elementary schooler, I'm pleased to report I've yet to give in to the curse of the appliqued mom sweater. Small victories, people.

    Ever feel a sense of deja vu when you're watching Teen Mom 2? It's been years (literally) since Leah Calvert and Corey Simms got divorced, but on this week's episode we once again got sucked down the Leah/Corey shoulda, woulda, coulda rabbithole.

    Which they did tonight. A lot.

    It's been another rough week for you, hasn't it? Somebody left your scantily clad body at the top of the stairs, and you had to be rescued from the slobbery jaws of the dog. And then to top it all off, a bunch of scientists came out with another dubious claim that you are destroying little girls' chances at making something of themselves one teeny weeny waist at a time.

    In a study published in the journal Sex Roles, researchers Aurora M. Sherman and Eileen L. Zurbriggen have issued forth the brazen claim that you, oh plastic one, you are responsible for teaching girls that they have fewer career options than boys.

    They based this assumption, dear Barbie -- or do your friends call you Babs? -- on interviews with 37 girls ages 4 through 7.

    Making the transition from child star to adult actress is not for the faint of heart. Many have tried, and many are still trying to pick up the pieces of their broken lives. But Anne Hathaway has always managed to stay above the fray. The 31-year-old was just a teenager when she took on the role of Princess Mia in Disney's The Princess Diaries, securing her place in the hearts of American children. And now she's back in yet another movie for children, Rio 2, which opens April 11.

    The Stir caught up with Anne at the movie's world premiere in Miami, where she was celebrating the reprisal of her role as Jewel in the sequel to the popular animated film.
