    It's hard to believe that 13 years have passed since that fateful day that changed all of our lives in ways we never could have imagined. No matter how much time goes by, we'll never forget where we were and what we were doing on the morning of September 11, 2001, when the news broke that the first plane had hit the World Trade Center.

    And that's why we need to stop and take a moment today to remember those who lost their lives in the attacks, and also the loved ones they left behind who are still grieving every single day.

    The most entertaining show on earth this week wasn't The Voice or So You Think You Can Dance -- it was the Scripps National Spelling Bee! For the first time in more than 5 decades, two young boys -- Sriram Hathwar and Ansun Sujoe -- tied for the win after both proved no word in the English lexicon could stump them. They are both overjoyed and neither seems to give a fig that he has to share the trophy with one of his peers. Good for you, boys -- work together and you can one day run the world.

    But hey, that's not all that happened at the Bee. As tensions ran super high, one judge delighted audience members and confused the heck out of the teen contestants by quoting the amazing lyrics to Kelis' 2003 song, Milkshake, to use a challenging word in a sentence.

    (This is the true story one of my previous Mother's Day written on that particular day as the events unfolded. Some names have been changed for no reason whatsoever.)Today, I'm officially the Queen. It's true, my children told me this when I awoke. By "awoke," I mean when they woke me at 8AM and said, "We let you sleep in Mommy, now wake up because you're the Queen today."

    I'm sure the Queen wakes up at 8AM on the days she sleeps in too.

    I'd like to note that, if the Queen is knee deep in pee, whining, and is constantly saying things like, "I will separate you two if I have to," and "Can someone extract this Lego from my foot?" than I am the Queen every day. I have a feeling she is not, but as I've been a Queen for 6 hours now, I thought I'd fill you in on what it's REALLY like.

    Here's the funny thing about Mother's Day: the stores are chock full of cards full of mushy, gushy sayings about what it means to be a mom. Some of them are true, certainly. Being a mom takes a whole lot of love. But you know what else makes it worth being a mom? All the laughs!

    Motherhood is often pretty darn hilarious! And when it isn't, we could all use a bit of humor to get us through. So what better way to celebrate moms than with some funny quotes about motherhood?

    Forget the cast of Saturday Night Live, toddlers are the real comedians out there. (And let's be honest, way cuter, too.) When you live with a toddler, every day you're privy to a private comedy routine -- pratfalls ad nauseum; food falling out of their mouths while they're eating; the absolute craziest, most nonsensical conversations. In short, they're the best. And there are so, so many ways to describe them.

    Wondering what the true definition of a toddler is? We've got you covered. Here are 19 truly hilarious definitions of toddlers.

    The latest statistics show that one in 68 children in America has autism. But as the world shifts into gear for Autism Awareness Month -- or as some call it, Autism Acceptance Month -- we can't help but be reminded that despite the growing number of children being diagnosed with the spectrum disorder, the way these kids are treated is changing too.

    Parents may not know what "causes" autism, but more parents than ever have become vocal advocates for their children. And so it seems fitting that as we don blue clothing and plaster everything in sight with puzzle pieces, we also look at some quotes that celebrate the children and adults with what Autism Speaks terms the "fastest-growing serious developmental disability in the U.S." as well as the parents who are at their side every step of the way.

    Not too long ago, I turned 40...

    I was telling a friend that I'd be willing to trade in my Gen X status for that of a 30-year-old hipster who wears black-rimmed glasses (for statement, not vision, purposes). Then, I'd never have to admit that I spent the Saturday nights of my childhood hoping beyond hope that Charo would be the surprise guest on The Love Boat or that somehow, Shari and Lambchop would find themselves in an eerie episode of Fantasy Island where Shari was the puppet. (What, I'm the only one who wished for that story line? I think not.)

    No, I wouldn't know a lot of things like, the pain of seeing Chachi marry Joanie or the name of my first Cabbage Patch Kid or the "awesome" effects of Sun-In, had I not been a poster child for Generation X. Things like this:

    March 15 is a big day at The Stir! It's the day we turn 4 years old! (It's our birthday! It's our birthday!) Thanks to all of you, we've grown so much over the past year. And with you, we've LOL'd, OMG'd, and WOW'd over everything that's been going on in the world and at home -- from the new Pope to the Royal Baby to our own babies. You've been with us every step of the way, telling us exactly what you think of us. The Good, the bad, and yes, the ugly. We wouldn't have it any other way.

    So like last year, when we celebrated our third birthday by recounting our most memorable reader comments, our writers are once again sharing their most favorite interesting comments. Enjoy!

    Ah, Valentine's Day ... the one time of the year it's almost required to get good and sappy. The holiday may have a bad rap, but I'll admit I love all the mush and gush that comes out on February 14. There's nothing sweeter than someone whispering sweet nothings in their lover's ear, is there? Well, maybe someone trying to find just the right love quote to express what's hidden in their heart?

    In honor of the sweetest holiday there is, how about some romantic quotes straight out of the lovey-doviest of movies to really get you in the spirit?
