I'm the mama of a sweet toddler girl; a lover of fine goods; and a big fan of summertime. My musings have appeared on many websites, including Huffington Post; The FashionSpot; and McSweeney's; and in another life, I lived in Los Angeles and worked on sitcoms. I'm constantly rearranging furniture; prefer my laundry to dry on a clothesline; and will never let go of the dream that one day my husband and I will own a quaint hotel somewhere on the coast of Italy. Kids stay free. Breakfast buffet included.
Anyone who has a pet will tell you that they're much more than a furry, four-legged friend -- they're part of the family. So when Christmas rolls around, of course we're going to get them ornaments for the tree. (Right after we get them their stocking.) It's a no-brainer.
Here are 5 adorable Christmas ornaments for pets and pet lovers. The tree just wouldn't be the same without them.
Parents have been finding unusual things in their toddler's orifices since the beginning of time. I distinctly remember my mother pulling a Lego out of one of my nostrils when I was 4, and just the other day, I pulled a giant wad of fuzz out of my daughter's mouth. Tasty. But few things can top the mother who recently found adandelion growing out of her 16-month-old's ear. Yes, growing.
If you were doing your holiday shopping this weekend in a mall, and a man suddenly started showering the crowds with money, what would you do? A) Try to grab some of that cash for yourself, or B) alert the authorities, because throwing $1,000 around is just plain weird? I'm guessing most people would go with A, because, duh, free money is awesome. So why on earth was a good Samaritan who did this very thing ticketed for his kind deed?
Poor Kim Kardashian. The woman is damned if she does, damned if she doesn't. If she were the kind of mom who posted a million and one photos of her daughter, North, each day, she'd likely be accused of "whoring her out," but since she doesn't, she's accused of being a bad mom who's never with her child.
Kim went off on a Twitter user named Jenna McBryde recently after McBryde called Kim a crappy mother for not spending enough time with her daughter. And regardless of what you think of Kim, she kind of makes a good point.
Next year, Kate Middleton and Prince William will embark on a rather lengthy royal tour of Australia, and yes, Prince George will be accompanying them. But his nanny, on the other hand, will not.
According to reports, the Duke and Duchess (most likely the Duchess) only want close friends and family members being involved with raising their son, so they're hoping to take Kate's mom, Carole, along for the trip, as opposed to Prince George's part-time nanny, Jessie Webb. A source close to the couple said: "They don’t want just anyone helping out in Australia and think Carole would be perfect."
Of course she would be perfect! She's the little prince's granny. What's better than that?
