Guess What?!

We've got news.  We're sort of  "professional" now.  WE KNOW.  It came as a shock to us, too.  Here's how it happened.  A couple of weeks ago we got an email in our SPAM folder telling us that Nickelodeon wanted us to write stuff for them. I swear to Maude I almost deleted it thinking it was a joke.  But it wasn't.  They were serious.  They may have been on cold medication but whatevs.  We got the gig.

We are so happy and excited to say that we now blog for Nickelodeon's ParentsConnect website! 

But between this new gig, our column for The Washington Times communities and writing for The Huffington Post - we're finding ourselves stretched a little thin.  Not thin enough to be able to pull off PajamaJeans, but you get the idea.  And of course, our first priority is our kiddos - however rotten the little snugglers might be.  So going forward, one day a week we're going to have a post here that tells you where you can find all this other stuff.  That way, we don't lose our minds and start posting things like:

Today Mini said: "MOMMA! Poop in my hands!" and then I gagged.  And then after I cleaned it, I finished my sandwich. Wait. That was gross, wasn't it? The end.

So even though you won't be getting something new from us here on that one day a week - you'll actually be getting something new from us in at least 2 other places.  So it's actually pretty awesome.  It's like a two-fer. Or even a three-some. I did it again. I made it porny. What's wrong with me?

Your second post for the day is us ripping into Abercrombie & Fitch for selling padded, push-up bikini tops to little girls . GAHHHHHH!!!! What the hell is wrong with people? Who thinks that's a good idea?  And did you guys hear about the mom giving her 8 yr old daughter monthly Botox treatments? Has the entire f*cking world gone crazy? Or is everyone else sane? And we're the crazy ones, except no one told us because they're worried about our feelings? 

And your third post for the day is all about keeping you up to date on current events. Listen, we all have kid shows on all day every day. Which means we aren't watching things like CNBC or The Very Serious News Station or TMZ or anything else. And, people, there are things happening in the world. So, we proudly offer Stuff That Happens in the World When We're Watching Nickelodeon.  It'll be a weekly news wrap up for all of us who are far too busy to actually watch the real news. And who are invariably snoring loudly when John Stewart comes on. Oh, just me? Yeah.

In any case, we're pretty happy about the whole Nickelodeon thing.  We figure we have about three days before they pull the plug on it. If we're lucky...
