Felicity Huffman's What The Flicka - What Not To Say To Parents Of Daughters
Kristen Daukas

What Not To Say To Parents of Daughters

When you’re a parent, you get lots of advice.  And if you know me, you know that I hate unsolicited advice. I hated it when I was single and people told me how to find a husband. I hated it when I was pregnant and people told me how I should take care of myself. I hated it when my kids were small and people told me how to discipline them. Unless I walk up to you and say “Excuse me, random stranger – could you please tell me your thoughts on ____________ ” I really don’t want to hear your advice. READ MORE

    New Facebook Buttons

    So rumor has it Facebook is going to install a “sympathy” button so we can all avoid that uncomfortable moment when something bad happens to one of our “friends” and we don’t know whether to “like” it to show support or not. I mean, how do you “like” when someone’s dog dies? AWWWKWARD. Which got me thinking, there’s a few more buttons I’d like to suggest to the peeps at Facebook: READ MORE

    Felicity Huffman's What The Flicka? - Who Are You To Judge Me?
    Angela Keck

    Who Are You To Judge Me?

    Are you so perfect that you feel entitled to sit back and look for others’ flaws? Who appointed you the ruler by which all the rest of us should be measured to determine if we are successful or failures?

    If I choose to do something—anything—in a way other than the way you do it does that automatically mean I do it wrong? Have you ever considered for even a moment that others may find fault with the way you do things? READ MORE

    The Vultures Are Waiting

    My daughter convinced me to watch The Rachel Zoe Project on the cable network, and as I’m staring at these twenty-one-year-old, anorexic-looking models, I’m thinking two thoughts: 1)Someone should tie these girls down and force-feed them doughnuts, and 2) Was I ever that young? READ MORE

    Felicity Huffman's What The Flicka? - Pink Shmink
    Expressing Motherhood

    Pink Shmink

    It’s not like I hate pink. I don’t.

    Actually, quite the contrary. I love pink. It’s my favorite color. I just don’t like one month dedicated to a disease. I don’t like the hype surrounding a specific color of ribbon to sell products and services that don’t really have anything to do with breast cancer. I don’t like to read about how very little of that money actually goes to breast cancer research. READ MORE
