Two Dutch Men Experience What Childbirth Really Feels Like for Women

Bill Cosby once said during a performance that he was told the best way to describe to men what childbirth feels like is to pull your bottom lip up over your head. I have said many times on the air that women are the superior gender and my reason for that has a lot to do with childbirth.

Dad Figures Out the Perfect Ponytail for His Daughter

Sometimes, the best things come in small packages, like the below video which is less than 10 seconds long but so educational. For dads; having to do your daughter's hair before school can be challenging. I raised three daughters and perfected the top of the head ponytail, or as I liked to call it...'the sprinkler head'.

Your Love of Energy Drinks Could Put You in the ER

It's about 3 o'clock...are you feeling a little sluggish and need a pick me up? Maybe an energy drink would come in handy right now...and maybe not. My 19-year-old son and 18-year-old daughter love to drink Monster and I have a friend who swears by his daily 5-Hour Energy drink. According to a new survey of U.S. hospitals, the number of trips to the emergency room that are tied to energy drink consumption has doubled over the last four years. Great, first no large sodas in New York City and now this - is there no end to the debauchery?

Half Pint Is All Grown Up and Now It’s Time to Say Goodbye

This week will be a hard one! After over 2 years, Half Pint is leaving WKDQ for a grown-up job. We have lived through her engagement, shower, wedding, post wedding drama, family issues, school, 21st b-day and graduation from college. And although we have been hard on her at times both on air and off, we love her dearly and she will be greatly missed. But as with our real children, even our radio daughter must leave the nest. :-(

Are Your Kids Still Interested In Toys?

Christmas is now over and your kids might still have their toys scattered all over the place or maybe not. Remember the days when every Christmas there was some 'must have' toy that people would line up for days in advance to make sure they got one? Things like a Furby, Tickle-Me-Elmo or a Razor scooter were almost impossible to find at the height of their popularity. That doesn't seem to happen much anymore and manufacturers like Mattel and Hasbro are becoming very concerned.

SNL’s ‘Silent Night’ – A Much Needed Moment

When I arrived home on Friday and turned on my TV, I was overwhelmed with grief for the victims and their families in Connecticut. As a mother and former educator, what had happened seemed unimaginable. I sat alone in my living room and wept. At that moment, all I wanted was to hug my children, hug them tight and pray for their continued safety. As I watched the President cry with me, I realized the daunting task he has ahead of him. How will he ever be able to make us feel safe? Will we ever be able to emotionally move on from this tragic event?

Apparently, the writers of SNL were asking themselves the same questions while preparing for the Saturday broadcast. 'Saturday Night Live' is the show that takes our reality and shows us the humor in all the absurdity around us. Rarely, do they take a moment to just be silent, but Saturday, they did.

Is Having a TV in Your Child’s Bedroom a Good Idea?

First of all, let me start by saying that I am NOT in favor of TVs in kids bedrooms, much to the dismay of my sons. This issue is such a hot button for me; it was one of the factors that led to a divorce. There is a new study out that links TVs in the kids' room to increased risk of obesity and disease, which is no surprise anymore because everything it seems puts kids at risk for something.
