I'm pretty sure a trend is officially over when your 21 month-old starts doing it spontaneously in the park. Say hello to "Baby Planking". Some might say my daughter is incredibly hip. I think if you pick up on a phenomenon AFTER the employees of Dunder Mifflin, you're probably a few football fields behind the curve.

Anybody else have pictures of their kid in a plank-like position? I'm thinking we need a "Planking Has Officially Jumped The Shark Baby Planking Album". Seriously. If you've got one, post it on the wall of the Mommy Shorts Facebook Fanpage.


Suri's Burn Book

Tumblr_lsahgwVzCy1qkiplg Have you all seen this yet? Suri Cruise has a blog in which she trashes other celebrity offspring. Check it out. It's brilliant.

I have emailed "Suri" to ask if she will grant me an interview. She has yet to respond. Maybe she's upset about my letter to her mother. Maybe she's threatened by my adorable daughter. Or maybe she's too busy treating her early onset bunions (which would explain the *gasp* ballet flats).

Whatever the reason, I'm officially insulted.


She's GOOD.


Help Fight Breast Cancer By Not Buying Jeans

My good friend Sara from Periwinkle Papillon is working with Lee Jeans to raise money to support breast cancer research. Sara lost her mother to breast cancer 11 years ago so the cause is very close to her heart. She's one of 8 bloggers competing to raise money for National Denim Day by asking people to donate the amount of money they would pay for a pair of jeans. You can help by entering Sara's Lee Jeans giveaway and more importantly, donating to her team.


Corey Feldman, Drew Barrymore, Will Ferrell, Yoda, Jaden Smith, Seth Rogan, Janet Leigh, Guy Fieri, Wallace Shawn and Diana Ross were all added this week. Check them out and rate each lookalike on a scale of 1 to 5.


And finally, this week I learned you can spend hours and hours writing a post about how you are turning into your mother, but if you really want some traffic— post a picture of a clown with a slide penis.


Blogging is a BITCH.

Have a good weekend!

ps: I also learned that people really really don't want to talk about "placenta stew". It won't happen again.
