A Quickie To Cure The Mother In-Law Sarcasm

The other day I complimented my friend Tina on her cardigan. It was a long cardigan that you could wear with leggings. The cardigan looked comfortable and stylish, so I said I love your cardigan. She responded saying thanks, my mother in law gave it to me for my birthday. I said that was nice of her. Tina said, yeah she gave it to me and then said it is perfect because it will cover your butt.

Being A Stepmom on Mother's Day Is Awkward

As a stepmom, I find Mother’s Day to be a mixed bag, especially since I haven’t been one all that long. I never know how to handle the holiday when it comes around. I get Mother's Day greetings from friends and family, but I always feel a little conflicted and don’t know how to receive these compliments graciously. I can’t get over the idea that I’m not a "real" mom, even if I play the part of one day to day.

A seriously bad Mother's Day has prompted a whopping 52,684 moms to cheat? That's what a dating site for affairs, Ashley Madison, says.

Happy Mother's Day. This Means You.

Moms today worry a lot.

More than Flowers: Mother's Day Reality

What in the world is more complicated than the mother-daughter relationship? I am one of those 50 year olds with “issues” dealing with both my mother and daughter. On facebook, a friend wrote, “I LOVE MY MOM!!!” and others are writing all these beautiful heart-felt notes about their mothers.

Why I Want To Work On Mother's Day

The world outside shifts quickly when you're at home. It starts to feel too big; there's too much you need to protect your children from in it. But the truth is that the world outside isn't too big; it’s that when you let a part of yourself go—like your career—your world becomes smaller. And without balance, you lose perspective, a sense of proportion.

7 Bad Celebrity Mothers

Sunday is Mother's Day, so naturally we're thinking of reasons we're thankful for our moms. They gave us life, fed us, clothed us, told us that prom dress made us look like a two-dollar hooker...you know, all the good things conscientious moms do. And we're especially glad that our moms were not showbiz fameballs who accompanied us to nightclubs or angled for their own reality shows.
