Baby Butt-lers

There’s a new industry that has emerged as an offshoot of one of the oldest professions in the world. It’s dirty, often takes place late at night, behind closed doors, and creates controversy in terms of what’s really right and what’s really wrong. That’s right: parenthood. But fear no longer, because today it is recognized that just because you actually are a parent doesn’t mean...

Teenagers vs. Toddlers: Which Are Worse?

Teenagers vs. Toddlers: Which Are Worse?

I recently engaged in a debate online with other parents about whether they thought the teen years or the toddler years were harder to survive. Depending on the age of your children, opinions vary, although I think that parents of toddlers who nod and say, “I hear teens are worse” don’t really believe anything could be difficult than the perilous parenting of a tippy and...

Twitter 101 for Moms

Let’s face it, if you’re a mom with a newborn you may as well give in and embrace the world of Twitter, and chat online at 2 a.m. instead of watching those infomercials. If you haven’t entered the world of Twitter yet, make 2012 the year to get online and in the know. Worried about what to expect? I’ve prepared a handy roundup of all...

New Mom? What You Don’t Want To Expect in 2012

What You Really Don’t Expect Expecting your first child in 2012? You’ll find that there are many books in the parenting section that contain the phrase “Things They Didn’t Tell You” in the title. They’re referring to things about childbirth, babies, becoming a mother, co-parenting with your partner, what happens to your body during pregnancy and the collateral damage therein. Honestly, at this point, I...

A Smart Auto-Motive

I attended the 2012 North American International Auto Show in Detroit recently, and was pretty impressed with the range of eco-friendly cars that were being unveiled — from the tiny Smart Cars to the hybrids, the electrics, and everything in between. It is, of course, imperative that we do all we can to protect our environment, and all of the car companies seem to get...

Marry Me, BlackBerry: A Valentine’s Day Request

Love is in the air. Being electronically transmitted, in all likelihood. For reasons I can’t explain, Pee-wee Herman and, in particular, his show, Pee-wee’s Playhouse, have always appealed to me. Fans of the show (back me up here!) know that if Pee-wee had had a BlackBerry, he would have married it — just like he did with the bowl of cereal. I now share this...

Snips & Snails vs. Sugar & Spice

Snips and snails and puppy dog tails. That’s what little boys are made of. What sick freak thought that up? And really? Little girls are made up of sugar and spice and EVERYTHING nice? Really? As a mother of both boys and girls, my personal experience tells me that it’s not always true — at least when it comes to how they interact with Mommy....

The Hunger Games Take Over North Carolina

Before The Hunger Games finished shooting, it was being referred to as “Project Artemis” and was already notable for being North Carolina’s largest on-location movie shoot of all time. When the North Carolina Tourism Board offered me access to the sets of The Hunger Games, which was entirely filmed in the western part of the Tar Heel State, I jumped at the chance. There was...

Hungry for the Hunger Games?

“Project Artemis” wrapped in the late summer of 2011, becoming one of North Carolina’s largest on-location movie shoots of all time. Or, as it’s now known as, The Hunger Games, the first movie based on the wildly popular book trilogy by Suzanne Collins, which arrives in theatres on March 23, 2012. I was one of four journalists (and the only Canadian) invited by the North...

Funny New Year’s resolutions for the family

Another year, another list of New Year’s resolutions I don’t intend to keep. The 10 extra pounds I’m carrying? Make me voluptuous. The well-bitten fingernails? Show my practical side by not splashing out money on fancy manicures. Fast food, missed visits to the gym, and gossiping behind neighbours’ backs — these are all qualities that make me an unpredictable, free-spirited and brave person (the gossip...
