Surely by now you've all heard about the kid who got a bill for $24 when he was a no-show to a classmate's birthday party.
You haven't heard this overachieving tale of WTF?
Where have you been? It's all the talk in the carpool line, my email is blowing up with links to the articles, and one of my mom's friends even mentioned it to me today.
OK, so let me fill in those of you who must live on a deserted island.
The FDA approved a new drug called Addyi -- pronounced "Addie." (Yeah, I don't know why it's spelled so stupidly, but it is.) It's being touted as the "female Viagra."
I don't know about you, but my friends and I talk a lot about how little interest we have to get it on these days. We've always got a list of about 30 other things that need to be done before we can sexy time, so a drug to help get us in the mood SOUNDED like a terrific idea. That's right, ladies, this little pink pill could revolutionize your pathetic prowess in the bedroom!
But before you start gobbling these pills like Tic Tacs, let's take a closer look at the harmful side effects:
Oh thank God there is a new trend in parties we can throw for pregnant women!
I was really starting to worry about party planners. I was beginning to think they were hurting for business. I mean how were they earning their keep once kids didn't need elaborate first birthday parties or potty parties anymore?
I was also so concerned for those pregnant moms out there who were feeling like they weren't getting quite enough attention. Let's see, they peed on a stick and posted the results on Youtube, had a gender reveal party where they released doves that had been dyed pink or blue into the sky and a boring old baby shower (everyone and their grandmother had a baby shower!). These pregnant moms were suffering from lack of adoration and needed a little pick me up.
I read an article about the New Zealand La Leche League protesting a picture of a dad feeding his baby daughter a bottle. The picture was part of a PSA ad for not smoking. The ad ended with the man saying he wouldn't smoke because he has a baby in his house and then he feeds his baby a bottle.
The LLL decided this was not the proper message that needs to be sent out to New Zealand and they pressured the government to edit the ad and remove the feeding. They think that by showing a father feeding his baby a bottle in an ad completely un-related to breastfeeding it will somehow sully the message that breast is best.
Never once did LLL consider for a moment that it really isn't their fucking business why this man is feeding his baby a bottle.
Hey you guys, what have you been up to? At the risk of sounding like a dense soccer mom in the aisles of Target: THE SUMMER HAS LITERALLY FLOWN BY! Poof.
We did a lot this summer:

The other day the Hubs was scrolling though some of the Twitter profiles of my readers. He does this on occasion. It's actually very helpful usually because it's always good to know who's following you. Today he stopped short when he found one:
