She's slow to rile too - give her a nudge and all she does is gurgle at you. She's the toilet in my house. ...more

She's 18 Next Month: This Mom Is Backing Away From Miley Cyrus Criticism

Miley Cyrus will be 18 next month. All this talk of containing the sexy is rubbing me wrong. I can't stand her music, and I've never been a fan of any of the Cyrus clan for myriad reasons. I was aghast at her behavior when she was 16. However, she's not 16 anymore, not a child. Now that she's a month from being old enough to vote and serve her country, any attempts to contain her sexy smacks of patronizing patriarchy to me. But this post is not a rant -- it's a question. ...more

(VIDEO) Psychology Today on The Beauty Myth. Again, Seriously?

According to Amy Alkon, either my husband is not biologically/genetically man or he is blind. That’s because I managed to “catch” (or “snag” or “land” -- she uses all of these hunting metaphors in her article ”The Truth About Beauty" in Psychology Today on why you better be attractive if you don’t want to die alone and poor with 17 cats who eat your face off before anyone even notices that you are missing because who would care about you anyway if you aren’t physically attractive according to a narrow set of standards) him while I was 35 pounds overweight and did not wear make-up. ...more

The Blogosphere on Authenticity

Choosing to live a more authentic life two years ago has required me to be very conscious of how I spend my days and how I live. It's not always easy, but it's very much like the thoughts Beth shared with us in response to the video on her blog: "I have reached the conclusion that regardless of whether other people are being authentic, I don't want to be held hostage by my fears of what people will think or say. I want to be me. ...more
