“UES Mommas,” a popular private Facebook group with nearly 28,000 members, is generally what you’d expect from an Upper East Side internet mommy group. The forum is filled with vacation advice, nanny recommendations, morning sickness questions, and discussions about the best way to shield one’s child from the eclipse…
Anisa Jomha was a so-called “boobie streamer” until last March. Her sizable Twitch following includes ardent fans, horny dudes, toxic trolls, and an unusual chat moderator: her mother.
It's Mothers Day! You should call the woman who gave birth to you! But don't stop there, give her the gift that will warm her heart and everyone else's: a retweet.
In honor of the women from whence we came, SNL aired an absolutely perfect Mother's Day Game Show skit last night. But of all the mom-related jokes, none hit quite as close to home as 'Which of These Emails Did I Send You?'. The winning answer? Fwd: fwd: fwd: fwd: all of them.
Moms! They gave you life, cared for you, taught you right from wrong, and most importantly, they loved you (unless they didn’t). But now that you’ve abandoned them to move on to bigger and better basements, moms need to fill that hole in their heart any way they know how. It’s time to talk about Moms on Twitter.
Flowers? Really? You should be ashamed of yourself. What mom wants is something that she can use and have a good time using. Buy one of these gifts for mom instead, and let her know that you care about the woman who incubated you in her womb for nine months.
Being a tech blogger has made me the default tech support for my family. Especially for my mother. While she's pretty savvy, all things considered, she still asks me some pretty funny questions.
We've all heard people long for Facebook's lawless pre-parent days. Back then, it was anything goes—a land filled with photos of keg stands without consequence and all the cussing you could muster. Those people are wrong. Facebook is better with moms.
I'm at my parents' house for the weekend. Loosely translated, I'm doing some minor tech support for the next few days. My mother just implored: Siri now hates me. Can you help me? Sure, mom.
Moms are at the absolute best. They brought you into the world, they raised you, they loved you, they took care of you, they Mom'd you. In fact, what they're not the best at is a very short list. Actually, it's just one thing: Computers. No matter how easy it is to use a computer, Moms will always find a way to freeze…
Happy Mother's Day to everyone—whether you are a mom, have a mom, are partnered with a mom, or just think moms are generally neat people. Do you have a mom who shared her love of science fiction with you? Tell us all about her.
Moms are so busy taking care of their sloppy kids and making sure everyone and everything is okay that they don't have time for silly movies! Especially mind tripping, sci fi movies like The Matrix. Joe Nicolosi, a filmmaker, showed his Mom the movie and then asked her what it was about right after. Moshimo!
If your mom and dad bought you an iPhone for Christmas or if you're a mom or dad who gifted an iPhone to your kid, you should make your kid follow the rules of Janell Hofmann. Hofmann bought an iPhone for her 13-year-old son Greg and gave him 18 rules to follow.
She birthed you. She nurtured you. She took way too many pictures of you before prom. The very least you can do for the original special lady in your life is get her a decent holiday gift. Put down the Keurig, son. Try these instead.
The Daily Mail (my favorite Paper of Record, if you hadn't guessed by now) is reporting that more than 1 in 4 mothers—27% to be precise—will hand her cranky or bored baby a cellphone—rather than, you know, something whose name literally means to pacify.
MamAmor Dolls are the umbilical-intact, placenta-producing creation of Adriana Guerra, a doula in Canada, with three home-birthed children of her own.
You know when you were a kid and you did some dumb kid thing, and as punishment your mom dragged you in front of your friends to embarrass you? Just be glad the internet wasn't around back then, or you'd be begging for a butt-whoopin' instead of digital ignominy, like this 12-year-old troublemaker.
Your mom will always love you, and you'll always love your mom, but now that moms are comfortably geeky, maternal interactions can get weird and frustrating very quickly. How do we manage? You need a plan—especially with Mother's day coming so soon. This is it.
On April 22nd, the hormonal teenagers of Manitou Springs High School gathered at City Hall to engage in the rites of prom. There was music, there punch, there was (probably) crying in bathroom stalls. And there was dancing so dirty that two chaperones decided to break out the Lysol. Literally.
Oh no, here comes a statistic that's going to nauseate you a little—watch out: a new study says a larger than expected percentage of moms are using their smartphones. While having sex. Smartphones! Moms! Sex! Oh no! No!
