6 Lies Stay-at-Home Moms Tell Themselves

I've heard it all before: stay-at-home moms with endless excuses, reasonings, logic and lies that we tell ourselves (and other people) of how and why we are the exceptions to many social norms. "I'm too busy as a SAHM to be able to do that during the day." "People should understand because I'm a SAHM." "Well, that's easy for her to do because she's not a SAHM." Ladies, it's all bull. It really is. ...more
It must be so horrible and difficult to be a work and not at home with your children, but ...more

5 Things Stay-at-Home Moms Do Not Sign On For

About three months ago, I became a stay-at-home mom again. I've been one before. Heck, I've been everything before: a working mom, a single mom, a single working mom, a stay-at-home mom, a work-from-home mom, a mom who took her kids to work with her. I'm pretty sure I've been in almost every angle of the stay-at-home mom vs. working mom debate, and even created a new angle or two from which to view it. Bottom line: I love being a stay-at-home mom. There are some things, though, that I did not sign on for as a stay-at-home mom....more

As Tough As Long Division? Is Lands' End the New Mattel?

Twenty years after Mattel debuted the ill-fated Teen Talk Barbie, Lands' End continues to tell girls that math is hard... for girls. Teen Talk Barbie, you may recall, is the talking Barbie who said, among other things, "Math class is tough!" Backlash led Mattel to essentially recall the dolls a mere four months after they hit the market. In 2011, J.C. Penney came out with a shirt that said, "I'm too pretty to do homework, so my brother has to do it for me." That same year, Forever 21 came out with a shirt that said, "Allergic to Algebra." So why is Lands' End perpetuating the message to girls that math is hard?...more
