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.
It's almost St. Patrick's Day! Are your kids ready? Mine has been drafting ideas for a bigger and betterleprechaun trap for weeks now, and there's glitter and glue as far as he eye can see. There's nothing that gets a crafty's kids creative juices flowing quite like a holiday.
I should know -- I'm the mother of a kid who hasn't met a glue stick she couldn't use down to the nubbin. Got a kiddo who is dying to get their craft on? Good! Because we've rounded up some of the coolest St. Patrick's day crafts for your little leprechauns, created by moms who really know their stuff. From shamrocks you make from coffee filters to push pops that let them taste the rainbow, there's a project for every age group.
Well, it's official. Farrah Abraham is once again a fame-hungry reality star without a show as VH1 aired the season finale of Couples Therapy this week. The Teen Mom has a new choice on her hands: will she slink back out of the spotlight or is she already looking for her next publicity stunt?
Her last therapy session with Dr. Jenn Berman could tell us a lot about what's next for Farrah.
If the puzzling disappearance of a New Jersey mom doesn't have mothers across the country clutching their babies, I don't know what will. Karla Villagra-Garzon was last seen more than a week ago, on the night of February 24. The missing mom was leaving her house at the odd hour of 10:30 p.m. to pick up medicine for her 2-year-old daughter who had the flu.
The drugstore was just blocks from her home in Elizabeth, New Jersey, but Karla never made it home that night. In fact, she never even made it to the store -- at least not from the look of surveillance footage from Walgreen's. So what happened to her?
I'm not sure what it is about St. Patrick's Day, but I find it really hard to resist dressing my kiddo up for the holiday. It's a mom's prerogative to make sure her kid is pinch-proof, right? And don't even get me started on all the things you can do with a little girl's hair on St. Patrick's Day. Green hair bows and shamrock headbands and rainbow hair do-dads ... oh my!
The holiday is coming up on us fast, but if you don't already have a plan for your kiddo's hair, well, the luck o' the Irish is with you! We asked some of the craftiest bloggers on the web to share their cool St. Paddy's day hair creations!
It was another tearjerker kind of episode of Teen Mom 2 this week, but don't worry. They were the good kind of tears. Leah Calvert finally convinced Corey Simms to let baby Ali go to school to get the head start that she needs because of her health issues.
And tonight we got to see what happens when a mother and father who are both divorced and remarried struggle with sending their special needs toddler off to school and another kid who is acting out and not ready for school.
