GIRLS: Withdrawl, Anyone?

March 25, 2013


  Anyone else suffering? Last night was the first night without the show I love, tire of, return to, much like a friendship. I’m an ambivalent fan and then I’m a huge fan, in  the course of one episode. I’ll wonder, can I stand Hannah’s hypochondria, Shoshanna’s style sense, Marni’s identity crisis? Is Adam a [...]

My Daughter Is Running For Class President–But Her Friends Aren’t Supporting Her

September 17, 2012


Our house is open to our friends. That of course, includes my children’s friends. Up until about today, my daughter’s life has been devoid of much of the girl drama we’ve discussed here at Femamom.

Yesterday Hayley wrote about the mother with the eating disorder who got a book deal to write about her daughter’s chubbiness…Last week Andrea wrote about her mother’s pig fridge magnet and how said pig’s location, top of fridge, out of site, or smack dab in the middle of the fridge, affected her mother’s mood. A dieting mother was not a chipper [...]

Schools, Students & Guns

March 6, 2012


In Chardon, Ohio, T.J. Lane killed three classmates and injured two others on Febrary 27, 2012. I am always, and I’m sure I’m not alone, left wondering what provoked a child to take the steps to aquire a weapon and go berserk. A child doesn’t wake up one day,  and out of the blue decide [...]
