Big news! I've moved over to GoodHousekeeping.com as the website's new Parenting & Relationships Editor. I'm still on the same beat, doing my best to support all the moms out there, but at a new publication.
I've done a lot of editing and updating of the parenting content there so far, but I've also managed to write some of my own stories.
I started off with my own opinion about Bert and Ernie (having done hours and hours of "research" with my daughter).
As the Mom of a Toddler, I Don't Need Bert and Ernie to Be Gay, but Kids Should See More Loving, Same-Sex Relationships on TV.
This headline is a hard one, and possibly misleading. I wrote about what it's like to watch the show now, in its half-hour format (it's very different from what it was like when we were kids!), and what I found so beautiful about the male friendship of Bert and Ernie in an era of toxic masculinity.
Then I went back to my pop-culture roots for some movie recommendations.
