Perfectionism has robbed me of so much. So much time. So much energy. And so much of my LIFE! If you’re at all a perfectionist, you can perfectly relate. I will tell you, that – at once – it is a quality that has catapulted me to fabulous victories and paralyzed me into frozen inaction.…Details
“Momma, What Happened?!” How To Talk To Your Kids About The News.
“Momma, What happened?!” (How could I possibly tell them the news?)
“What?”, I scurried to wipe my tears, stalling to steal a few minutes to compose myself.
“Momma! You’re crying! What’s wrong?!”, my 10-year-old is now wide-eyed and scared. In seconds, my twin 8-year-olds are by my side, just as scared.
I tried more stalling and mumbled something incoherent.
I couldn’t lie. I couldn’t evade.
But how do I tell them of the atrocities?Details
T-Rex Sex. And Other Fossil Fun.
Ever Feel Less Than Human?
As a mom (or dad), I know I do.
In fact, one of my boys reinforced that just the other night – telling me I sounded like a
And no, it wasn’t while I was in the bedroom. (Wait, I pause to think now…. was it? But I digress… )
“Momma! You sound like a T-Rex!!”
Yep!! (Now all 3 boys are hysterically laughing at me.)
Wow. Now THAT sounded particularly SEXY!
And the first thing I thought of…. T-Rex Sex. Why? I’m not sure. It must be my demented mind.
They’re telling me how I sound and I’m thinking of sex.
Here’s the skinny…Details

TOO PRETTY To Put Up With This Crap; TOO EMPOWERED To Stay Quiet
Have you told your 7-year-old daughter that she’s STUPID today?
No worries. Why not let a t-shirt do it for you?
Hold on just a sec.
Let me fix my hair, check my lipstick and adjust my own tight t-shirt. Because clearly that’s the only thing we dumb neophytes of intelligence are really worth.
At least it’s the message of yet another product targeting the tween-set. This time, the only things lasting are outrage and public backlash.
The center of the storm? A shirt for sale in J.C.Penney’s back-to-school clothes – the prime target: tween girls ages 7-13.
But, instead of starting a fad, it created a firestorm.
C’mon. Seriously, how STUPID can you get?

MAKE-UP ADS BANNED – EMPOWERED REALITY OR PHOTOSHOP GONE WILD?
You’ve seen the magazine ads. You’ve stared longingly and wished for that flawlessness. Admit it. The porcelain skin. The lack of blemishes. In fact, the complete NON-existence of blemishes, dark circles, spots, pimples – COMPLETE PERFECTION. And COMPLETE BULL.
Airbrushed Perfection is Brushed Off and Banned! Now, some of those airbrushed ads aren’t just making wrinkles disappear – the ads themselves are disappearing. In an extraordinary move, some advertisements have now been banned! These are the ads, featuring Julia Roberts and Christy Turlington, at the center of the “Cover-Up Controversy”:Details
|SUPERWOMAN’S CAPE IS NOW HER STRAIGHTJACKET — EMPOWER THE CAPE
By: Maria Luce
See, here’s how it happens. She thought she could do it. And do it ALL.But then when she tried to fly and:
SUPERWOMAN GOT HER CAPE WRAPPED AROUND HER NECK.
Time to use your vast array of SUPER-POWERS and EMPOWER YOURSELF.
How many times do you find yourself slipping into the dreaded “I-have-to-be-Superwoman” thinking? Must do it all, must be perfect, and must look good doing it. — Oh! And smile… Yes, THAT thinking. Ever find yourself there?
That cape of yours you think is so darn cute and – not to mention – you look incredible HOT and SEXY in — no, it’s actually like 4 sizes too small, is SO antiquated and idiotic – it’s reminiscent of the corset… and remember, women PASSED OUT and nearly died from those whale-bones-disguised-as-fashion.
Same thing with the Superwoman cape. Screw the cape, I say.
The REAL Superwoman gets help! No, not mental help. (Though, some superheroes have been seen slipping into the nearest padded room with the cape magically transformed into a straightjacket.)
The REAL SUPERWOMEN have MIGHTY POWERS: here it is….. ready?
