Hash Pipes and Ass Wipes

To Drive or to Teach Responsibility: A Quandary

When my oldest was 15 (before she could drive) she had a bit of an issue. You see, it was the week of basketball tryouts, every day from 3:30-5:30. However, the Tuesday of basketball tryouts was Election Day. The kids were off from schools because many schools in our little burg are used as polling places.  I work in town, the husband works in DC.  Yes, that's right, somehow the kids are supposed to find a way to school at 3:30 in the afternoon, despite many of them coming from two-income households....more

Do as I say, not as I do...

I find myself saying that to my kids a lot. We all do. My mom even said it to me about a hundred years ago when I was a teenager.  Only back then, she was talking about smoking cigarettes. "Don't smoke" she'd tell me, as she puffed away. And I never did. But these days, what I'm talking about isn't smoking or drinking, it's about meeting people online. ...more

Why Shouldn't I Let My Leg Hair Grow in the Winter?

Dear Mouthy Housewives,Do women still need to shave their legs in the winter months? I say they don't, but my friends all insist that I'm wrong and that I need to use a razor to stay smooth and feel sexy and attractive. Personally, I don't see the point, because I usually wear long pants and boots and it's not like I'm married or even have a boyfriend. What do you think? Hair or no hair?Signed,Princess Hairy...more

Anxious Parents Make Anxious Children: How I’m Letting Go

For as long as I can remember, I have been a riddled with anxiety. On the playground, I studied my tennis shoes with hopes I wouldn't be chosen for kickball. I sweated in the 40-degree weather with fear that my face would resemble a pug dog after one swift kick to my noggin. Dodge Ball boosted my worries in middle school gym class. I cowered in the back corners pleading to get hit in the shoes because the other kids might not have a strong enough arm to reach me. Please let me stay on the sidelines! ...more
Great job, mama! Glad you were able to keep your anxieties in check and help your kids to relax ... more

8 People I Love To Hate At The Gym

I'm a sucker for those late-night weight-loss infomercials, and as a result own a library of workout DVDs and a machine that transforms into a torturous, in-home gym. At first, I enjoyed exercising on my own schedule in the privacy of my home. I wore my ratty Lycra shorts from the late 1980s and didn't care if I looked like a Richard Simmons reject....more
