    Christian blogger claims working mums are terrible parents for THESE reasons 13 December 2018, 11:06 | Updated: 13 December 2018, 13:38 US blogger Lori Alexander’s ‘ignorant’ chart about employed mothers has sparked outrage A Christian blogger from the US has caused controversy after posting a handwritten flowchart criticising working mothers on Facebook. Lori Alexander, who blogs under the name The Transformed Wife, blasted mums who have jobs for feeding their kids ‘microwaved meals’ and not being there to ‘teach them about Jesus’. She added that their lives must be “falling apart” and that they don’t feel they are good wives and mothers. She also claims that working mothers will be…

    Kate Middleton Is Back from Maternity Leave — with a New Haircut and Old Boots!

    Kate Middleton is back to royal business! The royal mom returned to her royal duties on Tuesday when she visited a school in London. Kate, 36, took a short two-mile drive from her home at Kensington Palace to a recreation ground in Paddington, London, to spend time with local school children and learn how getting their hands dirty in a wildlife garden and outdoor learning helps with their wellbeing. Sporting a new hairstyle (slightly shorter and more layered), Kate dressed casually for the outdoor event in an olive green sweater and matching jacket, light brown skinny jeans and her trusty tassel boots, her go-tos for the last 14 years. The mom of…

    Now There’s an Innovative New Pregnancy Test You Can Flush Away

    Rido/shutterstock Believe it or not, pregnancy test design hasn’t changed (outside of the digital element, of course) since 1987. That means we’ve been using the same plastic, non-biodegradable tests since Ronald Reagan was president and Whitney Houston first sang “I Wanna Dance With Somebody.” That’s not only a little bit eyebrow-raising in and of itself, but it’s also bad news for the environment, as most end up in landfills, not to mention women’s privacy, given that you have no choice but to toss ’em in the wastebasket. (Really, the only people who likely appreciate the latter are TV show writers, who have been able to build plenty of plotlines around pregnancy tests found…

Here are 10 positive phrases you can say to family and friends who just don’t seem to get your parenting. 1. “I appreciate how much you care about our kids, but I’m really happy with how we’re doing it.”…

    Working Mothers Improve: Prescription Pickup | Working Mother

    2. Remote check-in, or at least via kiosks. Airlines have figured this out; why can’t pharmacies? If customers enter their own info, the one pharmacist working doesn’t have to. She can focus on getting your prescriptions. 3. Prescription sync-up. Some kids’ vitamins are available by prescription only. And maybe you or your partner rely on prescriptions year-round How annoying is it when you run out of one just a couple days before the next prescription is ready for pickup? If the pharmacy coordinated renewing each member of your family’s meds at the exact same time, you and their workers would save time since you would visit less often. 4. An…

    The Century-Old ‘Science Fiction’ Behind Ohio Rep’s Bill Covering Nonexistent Ectopic Pregnancy Treatment – Rewire.News

    Ohio Rep. John Becker (R) drew widespread criticism last week for an anti-abortion bill that would allow insurance coverage for the “reimplantation” of an ectopic pregnancy into the uterus—a treatment that does not exist.

HB 182, which Becker first introduced in April, seeks to ban almost all insurance coverage of abortions in cases where the pregnant person’s life is not endangered. It also…
