I have a lot to tell you about today. First of all, did you hear that apparently 3 kids is the most stressful number to have? So if you have 3, you should immediately try to make it 4. I’m going to just assume that 5 is like a relaxing day sipping pina coladas in the Caribbean.

Also, according to this same study, 72 percent of moms stress about how stressed they are. Wow. That sounds stressful.

Okay, second thing.  Awhile back I wrote an article for Lifetime Moms about Kim Kardashian’s pregnancy wardrobe needing just a smidgeon of help and boy, that girl does not listen to me. Because this is what she wore to the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala…


I’m not saying that there isn’t a right time to wrap a floral quilt around yourself and call it a dress – I’m just saying that maybe not when your pregnant.

Thirdly, the infamous tan mom released a pop single. Oh yes, she did. I guess there must be tanning beds that double as recording studios or else how could this happen? If you want to check it out or just can’t figure out a way to stop yourself, here you go….

Should I give you a moment to recover?

Moving on – Former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford (that philandering, not so truthful one) just revived his political career by winning a special election for an open U.S. House seat. He beat comedian Stephen Colbert’s sister.

You might remember Sanford because when he was governor, he disappeared for days to spend time with his lover in Argentina. Oh, he was married at the time. And his staff claimed he was out hiking the Appalachian trail. But you know, whatever! Let’s get him back in office!!

Finally (and this one is super important), there are making a Hot Tub Time Machine 2!

Man, this movie sucked the first time around but heck, let’s give it another go. Because who doesn’t love hot tubs! And time machines! And John Cusack! (Disclaimer: This time around there is no John Cusack so I hope you really like time machines and hot tubs.)

    Is it me, or is it weird that you can’t even see Kim K’s Hand!! How did she look in the mirror and convince herself that she looked fabulous. She must have a severe case of baby brain!!

  • Lisa says:

    Oh Kim…who is your stylist that let you out of the bathroom, the one with NO windows looking like that? Proof, again, that money can not buy good taste. Also, either her shoes are the same fabric or metallic and reflect the floralness.
    When in doubt, go with black.

    Five kids is a lot but can I tell you I am a bit jealous? I have no kids, it’s my one regret. I think about what Julia Roberts said about their family when she had number 3, “he completes us.” Enjoy every minute.

  • Aunt Michele says:

    I’m impressed you have time to keep up with all these important events. I hope the fifth child won’t interfere. LOL. Love the blog!

  • Jill sherman says:

    You are just too funny Kelcey!!! They say you don’t even notice when you have 5 kids! Not sure who “they” is or if that’s even true but it totally sounds like something I’ve heard before. Good luck!

    Hot Tub Time Machine rules! Maybe you just hadn’t been smoking enough special cigarettes before you watched? We laughed our patooties off watching. Of course, we may have laughed that hard at Lincoln based on the state I remember being in when we watched it…

    I have to tell you your blog is such a treat for me. I used it as my version of a carrot to get two things done at the office that I had been procrastinating for days! So, in addition to promoting weight loss, you can also say your blog makes readers more efficient. Here’s to you!

    Let’s not forget the news of Abercrombie& Fitch CEO. What a cutie he is !!! LOL ! WHAT A DOUCHE !!!!!!!!!!

  • Honestmum says:

    There’s something utterly hypnotising about Kim K’s dress… so much so I’ve ordered curtains in that exact same material (and I have Hot Tub Machine 2 on pre order)-I’m blaming you and Anna Wintour for all of the above.

  • Marta says:

    I saw that article too, just days after I posted about how I have baby fever and want a third. Still don’t care I will take you on stress to get another wiggly little thing to hold!

    And when I do get pregnant I will be looking to Kim for inspiration on what NOT to wear. (Also did you see the photo of her and Mrs. Doubtfire side by side? Loved it.)

  • steph says:

    I thought of you when I read that article about # of kids. You went straight from 2 to 4 so did it get easier?? Hahahahaha! Wishing u a baby who loves to nap.

  • Princess Judy says:

    Ummm…. What? No seriously, I’ll wear the quilt dress if only someone explains the tan mom rap thing to me. I know who she is I just don’t understand…. well, anything beyond that.

  • I heartily disagree about Hot Tub Time Machine! Genius film. But without John Cusack… How is that going to work?? As for the number of kids, I generally assume that the hardest numbers are 1 (because YOU are their full-time playmate) and 3-infinity (with a direct correlation between rising numbers and rising stress levels). Do I want a 4th? I think you know the answer to that…
