We don't often flip for maternity clothing lines (our great love of Hatch, notwithstanding), but MoM — aka More of Me — might be our latest bump-wear obsession. While the line has been around for a few years, the Fall collection takes it to a chic new level that actually makes us excited to buy maternity clothing again (and who knew that was possible?). From leather shorts to silky bow blouses to the perfect three-quarter-sleeve, A-line dress for colder weather, MoM's new line, which started shipping yesterday, will take you from the office to a girls night out in style. Keep clicking to check out our favorite pieces for a chic mom-to-be.
Mother's Day is today, and while we're all about the relationship between moms and daughters, you can't deny that special bond between mothers and their sons. Look no further than some of the cutest mama's boys in Hollywood, who aren't ashamed to bring up their mothers in interviews (even when it's embarrassing) and have been known to have ma on their arms on award show red carpets. Check out some of the funniest, most endearing, and awkward quotes on moms from our favorite sexy stars!
As a mother of a nine month old, I've been spending time with lots of mommas lately. I've found that besides chatting about diapers, teething, and lack of sleep, we all tend to mourn over the loss of our pre-pregnancy bods. Even if we did lose the baby weight in the beginning, our busy schedules make it hard to find time to exercise and eat right, so it seems inevitable to gain a pound here and there.
If this sounds familiar, I've put together some tips and reminders to help you get your body back (and keep it!).
- Don't finish their meals or snacks. A few extra bites really add up so pack up the leftovers and save them for next time.
- Don't eat just because they are. Kids are really active and since they're often too busy to sit down and enjoy a full meal, they end up eating little bits several times a day. That doesn't mean you should reach for a cereal bar too. Stick to your regular eating schedule to avoid consuming extra calories.
- Don't use high calorie treats as rewards. You're more likely to end up rewarding yourself as well.

I went to visit my mother last weekend, and I was woken up early by a strange pounding sound outside my room. I opened my door to find my mom running up and down the stairs. She smiled and said, "This really works your butt!"
My mom wasn't always into exercising, but a few years ago when her doctor told her that she had high blood pressure, she got on the exercise boat and has been into it ever since. She's not a marathoner by any means, but she walks every day and does strength training moves while watching Oprah (it's really cute). Since it's Mother's Day, I was wondering . . .
Moms give some of the best advice. That's probably because they have years of experience on us as well as our best interests in mind.
Whenever I'm upset about something, my mom tells me to figure out what actions I can take to improve the situation. It might seem obvious, but her advice to worry about myself and not the things I can't control has helped save my sanity many times.
In honor of Mother's Day (don't forget it's this Sunday!), I want to know the best advice your mother has given you. It will hopefully make all of us a little wiser.

If your mom dabbles in tech (mostly to get around faster, to stay connected with friends and family, and to surf her favorite blogs) but still likes her gadgets to look clean, then she's a lady after my own heart. Getting your mom to gravitate toward new gadgets can be a great way for her to use the latest streamlined technology to stay informed and have fun. Here's how I'd wire the geek chic mom who wants her gadgets to serve a purpose but wants to be entertained in the process.
Your mom: the woman loves you, she carried you around for nine whole months, she fed you, cleaned you up, and has taken care of you since always. No pressure to get her a good gift, right? Luckily, beauty is a realm in which you can get her something great for way less than $100. The only problem is sifting through the endless gift sets to find something she'll actually like. To help you out on that end, I've put together 10 cute gifts for moms of every stripe and offspring of every budget — from $25 to over a Benjamin. Click through and find something for your dearest mama.
How many times do you hear someone say that her mom drives her nuts? I hear it all the time, and truth be told, I've said it my fair share of times too. Now don't get me wrong, I love my mom; I'm very fortunate to have the relationship I do with her, but sometimes her over-protective nature and smothering affection can be a little too much. And even though she's always there for me — whether it's to give advice or offer a listening ear — do tell, does your mom ever just drive you nuts? And if so, what is it specifically that gets on your nerves?
It seems like every day, my mom is getting more and more tech savvy. She has her own blog, a TiVo, an iPod, and a Bluetooth earpiece, and I'm pretty sure she actually drooled when she first saw my iPhone 3G. That's why it wasn't exactly surprising when she sent me a Facebook friend request. I chuckled a little at the thought of my mom happily writing on my wall and tagging photos, but I accepted her.
Turns out I may be an anomaly because I just heard about the Facebook group “Moms of Kids Who Are Embarrassed They Have a Facebook Profile," founded by a mother who was unceremoniously rejected by her 12-year-old daughter.
I totally understand why you wouldn't want your mom to see everything you have on your Facebook profile, and then again, I kinda think it's harmless to add your mom — but maybe that's because I'm old and boring that I feel like there's nothing to hide. So tell me, what's your parental social networking policy?
