My Little Girl Loves Pink and Princesses (and Bugs!)

By at 9:56 am

Ellie-princess

I’ve always found the nature versus nurture discussion interesting. Now that I am the mom of a boy and a girl, it’s downright fascinating. It’s from that perspective that I rolled my eyes after I watched the commercial for GoldieBlox that Kveller posted.

The thing I probably love the most about my daughter, Ellie, who’s 4, is that she will dress herself in full princess garb, crown to slipper, and then march outside to examine bugs with her yellow magnifying glass, moving dirt around and onto her tulled tushy with a red or blue shovel. This is also her outfit of choice to wear while she does experiments from her multicolored science kit.

Ellie’s favorite color is pink, with purple in close second. She plays with her dolls – stuffed and Barbie–and is always the mom. She has a jewelry box stuffed with plastic baubles that she wears with the pride of a woman who just received an engagement ring. Ellie couldn’t be girlier if she tried.

Girls Ditch Their Pink Toys in the GoldieBlox Super Bowl Commercial

By at 10:31 am

Whether or not you care to watch giant men in spandex leggings tackle each other with the hopes of winning a massive bejeweled ring, for many, the Super Bowl is all about the commercials, and this year did not disappoint. One stand out? The much-talked about ad featuring GoldieBlox, an engineering-related game designed especially for girls.

The ad plays on gender stereotyping in toys, insisting that more than “pink, pink, pink,” girls actually “want to think.” So, watch below and tell us what you think.

What were your other favorite commercials of the night?

The Great Fashion Debate with My 5-Year-Old Step-Daughter

By at 1:58 pm

pink

Just before bedtime I put on a brave face and begin “The Great Fashion Debate.” What will my step-daughter wear the next day? I try to open with a note on the weather or the next day’s activities–long sleeves if it’s cold, something fancier if we’ll be going to synagogue–and then wait for Ronia’s first choice. At 5 years old, Ronia is not as invested in fashion as some of her friends, but she definitely cares, and has a strong affinity for dresses and skirts, pink things, and anything with ruffles.

This could not be farther from my own fashion sense. Seventy percent of my wardrobe is black, and it’s safe to say I wear a cardigan over a tank top with jeans six days a week. Meeting in the middle is a pretty far walk for either of us.

So why do I care what Ronia wears? I know that there are some parents who feel like they have neither the time nor energy to police their kids’ fashion choices, and I salute them. But I find that I really do care what Ronia wears. Partially it’s because I know that I get judged based on how she looks and behaves. Though I did not give birth to Ronia, and only married her father a few weeks ago, when people see us together, the assumption is that I’m her mother, and that I’m responsible for making her look neat, clean, appropriate, and fashionable. I’ll never forget the time that another parent came up to me at synagogue, looked at Ronia, raised his eyebrows, and said, “Wow, you guys let her dress herself?” That stings. And it implies bad mothering on my part, for allowing her out and about in one of her more creative ensembles. Read the rest of this entry →

- Do you remember what you looked like one week after giving birth?

(Also of note: is he wearing a Christening gown? We thought they were raising their kids Jewish…) (Facebook)

Shopping for Kids’ Shoes is Getting a Lot More Complicated

By at 10:01 am

baby shoes

More than any other article of clothing, my children’s shoes have borne, for me, emotional weight. This started before they were born.

When I was pregnant, too superstitious (pu pu pu) to populate the apartment with nursery furniture and too nauseous to think about a layette, I allowed myself a single indulgence from among the hand-me-downs that I otherwise kept stashed in the brown paper bags in which they came through our door: Evil eye be damned, I placed a pair of rabbit-eared booties on the nightstand next to my bed.

Tiny and surreal next to the growing stack of pregnancy books left unread, the shoes seemed a stand-in for the hope lodged in my swollen belly, the embodiment of a promise that by some miraculous combination of effort, modern medicine, and fate, my 40-year-old body would bear fruit.

By at 3:54 pm

All the Jewish celebrity parent gossip you (n)ever wanted to know.

- Pink and her daughter Willow, 1, looked adorable leaving a toy store this week. Do we think Pink feels weird about the fact that she mostly wears black and her daughter mostly wears pink? (Celebrity Baby Scoop)

- Mark Feuerstein was raised Jewish, but here’s a picture of him and his three kids with Santa. This makes me kind of uncomfortable, at least partly because this is the least convincing Santa I’ve ever seen. (Celebrity Baby Scoop)

- I always love pictures of Liev Shreiber carting Kai 4, and Sasha, 5, around NYC on a bike, though I wish Liev would sport a helmet, too. (People)

All the Jewish celebrity parent gossip you (n)ever wanted to know.

- Tori Spelling, her husband Dean, and their five kiddos, Jack, Liam, Stella, Hattie, and Finn, spent Thanksgiving at a hotel on the beach. Looks like they had fun, but it seems kind of sad to spend Thanksgiving in a sterile hotel (even if it is on the beach). (Celebrity Baby Scoop)

- Bethenny Frankel went for a swim with daughter Bryn, and shared a story about how Bryn serenaded the people on a recent plane trip with the ABCs. When she finished they all clapped and cheered. Awww. (Also: people being nice to kids on an airplane? This sounds made up.) (Celebrity Baby Scoop)

- New mom Drew Barrymore and her Jewish husband Will Kopelman brought newborn Olive out for her first doctor’s appointment. Adorbs. (US Weekly)
