Welcome to my musings on pop culture and parenting. I am the Pop Mama and this is a safe place to steal away from your screaming child and get your fix on what's up with Beyonce and great poop stain remover tips.

Sweet November

November already?  I can hardly believe it.  Since I last posted I started a new job (still an attorney), Cam went trick or treating, got a double ear infection, and I am no longer wearing leafy vegetables as undergarments.  Cam is back to normal, although we will probably be paying a visit to the ENT for an ear tube evaluation by year end.  Other than that, life is good.  Fall is my favorite season of the year (with summer a close second).  I love fall weather, fall clothing, fall food, Halloween and Thanksgiving.  Each holiday and tradition takes on new meaning this year because it is Cam's first time experiencing it -- even though he is only 6 months old, he still seems interested in new things and is very curious!  We did the Halloween thing and he was the cutest little monkey in his costume and for Thanksgiving we are going to my in-laws in Indiana.  I am looking forward to the holiday season unfolding...I even started Christmas shopping already.  After about 15 people recommending the Playskool Busy Ball Popper, I went ahead and ordered it and I think that Cam is going to love it.

So, you are probably wondering where the pop culture commentary has gone...me too.  Since Sister Wives ended, Bethenny hasn't reappeared (where are you girl?) and the RHONJ is on hiatus I have had little pop fodder to work with.  Here are some tids and bits to tide you over:

1.  Sad news: Lily Allen lost her second pregnancy (baby was due in January).  Now, she has septicaemia which is basically blood poisoning...poor thing.  I hope she can recover from this loss and this condition. 

2.  On 19 Kids and Counting, Jana and Jill Duggar joined the local fire department as first responders.  Kudos to the girls for getting out there in their community and helping out.  As you know, the Duggar girls do NOT wear pants.  According to sister-in-law Anna, the reasoning is that wearing skirts keeps them feminine and lady like.  So, in true Duggar fashion (ha!) the girls made some fire fighting skirts out of the standard uniform pants -- take that Project Runway!  The skirts were butt ugly, but had a cargo pocket, which made them instantly suitable for their work as first responders.  The best part of the episode was when they awkwardly went to show the fire department chief their handiwork...he could have cared less and I just felt embarrassed for them.  After they left the fire chief's office and were out of ear shot, Anna couldn't stop laughing at how awkward the situation was.  It showed me that there is a sense of humor somewhere in that family. 

3.  In case you were worried that she would never move on, Christina Aguilera has started dating again since her split with husband Jordan Bratman.  Apparently she has taken up with a production assistant from her new movie, Burlesque.  They recently were seen on a double date with Joel Madden and Nicole Richie.  And of course, the blurb still had to throw something in about how she is still a fantastic mom to son Max.  Okay already.

4.  Charlie Sheen trashed a hotel room, scared an adult film star, lost a $150k watch, and was hospitalized.  Apparently it was "a bad night."  In his words, "If a guy has one bad night, everybody goes insane and panics.  I'm not panicking."  Well, I'm glad that he isn't concerned.  I mean, is it really a problem if you are naked and trashing a room at The Plaza Hotel with a porn star locked in the bathroom?  Nahhhhhh

Let's hope that the pop world has more to offer in the days to come because this was slim pickins!  I have some shows on my DVR that I need to catch up on, so maybe that will bring up some topics.
