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...

  1. Yay for the both of you! And, I'm so glad you will feature what you've posted elsewhere- that way, I don't miss out on a single hilarious rant!

  2. you had me scared. i have slept only 3 hours since last i thought you were saying eff mommyland, it will now only exist to link to our new friends. and then as i was freaking out to my awesome friend, i realized my mistake. lol. go on with yo bad selves! see if you can convince the big wigs (and by convince i mean threaten with slime) to make a new channel dedicated to the awesome stuff from when my 23 yr old self was a kid....doug, rugrats (when they were babies...they should never have grown up!!), angry beavers, hey arnold, ah! real monsters, hey dude, you can't say that on television.....those shows were amazing and not crappy like what you find today. =)

  3. Big Huge Congratulations!!! So very happy for two of my favorite psychopath pirate ninjas in the entire universe!!! We heart you!

  4. Congratulations!!! Well done and well deserved!

  5. Congratulations! I'm not surprised at all--you two are going to take over the world and we'll all say we knew you when. Selfishly, I'm glad you're keeping Rants as a place to debate Pajama Jeans and discuss fecal corn. xoxo Louise

  6. Um have you seen the breast feeding doll for little girls? Google it and be appalled. LOL

  7. Ok, so let me get this straight, in one day you posted THREE articles (ok, 4 if you count the one about the other 3, which I do) all while being your bada** totally mommy selves, and I have posted a total of ONE time on my blog since I started it I don't know how many months ago.

    I have officially come to the realization that we could never be friends. Not because you are not totally awesome, but because you would be all "Who's that weird girl over in the corner drooling on herself?"


  8. You are two awesome pirate hookers! Congrats and thanks for all of the funny/serious/semi-serious and all absolutely fabulous writings.

  9. Dude! Today Nickelodeon, tomorrow - THE WORLD!!! CONGRATS RFML!!! So thrilled to say I read ya "before" you were super famous super stars!!! woot woot!!!

  10. Nickelodeon let you say "boob" and "jackhole". Who knew?

  11. Well done, ladies, WELL DONE! Had to go refill my coffee since I had THREE awesome posts to read this AM. :-) And @Flakymom... me too! I totally thought I could do the whole "blog thing." I started off great. And then haven't posted since last July. JULY. One of my NY resolutions was to post just once a month. Um, it's almost April. yeah. So K&L, your my heroes!

  12. Way to go, ladies! Well deserved! And while you have the stage at Nickelodeon, will you please start a national boycott of Abercrombie and Fitch until they stop selling those effing ridonkulous padded pushup bikini tops to little girls? I am adding a post to my site, which is supposed to be a non-controversial website for women that covers a wide range of topics about money, but I'm just so mad about it I can't keep my mouth shut.

    Anyway, WOOT!

  13. Hurrah for Mommyland World Domintation! Congrats girls, you rock!

  14. So proud of you ladies. I can say "I knew you when". I knew it was only a matter of time. This kind of awesomeness can't be contained!!!!

  15. See, you will take control bit by bit and soon there will absolute domination (this may be tongue in cheek -and I use 'may' loosely)

  16. I'm really inspired with your writing talents as neatly as with the layout
    to your blog. Is this a paid subject matter or did you customize it yourself?
    Either way keep up the excellent high quality writing, it is rare
    to see a great weblog like this one these days..
