Happy Monday! I am up at our family house in Wisconsin, just me and Albie Dog. My apartment is infested with moving boxes and cockroaches, my parents’ apartment is infested with parents, Albie Dog and I just needed a break. So for Mother’s Day Week, I am avoiding my mother.Continue reading

Oh boy, a big scary 101 that people are going to yell at me and disagree with me about what I say! Those are always the best ones.Continue reading
I hope this is a fun post for folks, if you care as much about mother roles as I do, and maybe after this one we can take the Champion mothers and have them battle with each other.Continue reading
This started out just being “interesting mothers” and then I realized it was all non-biological and just went with that. Interesting there are so many, isn’t it?Continue reading
I am highly prejudiced of course (as everyone is on subjective things like parenting), but to me these are the absolute WORST mothers in recent Hindi film. Would you agree? And which is really the worst?Continue reading
Happy Wednesday! Oh my gosh this week has been crazy at work. Every morning I have 1 or 2 calls scheduled for the day, and by 11am, I am fully booked. Makes the days go in that weird slow/fast way.Continue reading

Help me! What is a fun completely happy and also easy to snark at movie that would be appropriate for Mother’s Day? Doesn’t even have to have a “good” mother in it.Continue reading
Such a good movie! I keep waiting for it to become a cult classic, for more people to discover it, but so far it seems to still be forgotten by the world. But I will try to help by making it my Mother’s Day pick!Continue reading
Happy Wednesday!!!! I’m having one of those long slooooooooow work weeks. Too much to do, so they days go by fast, but I am exhausted at the end. Oh well, half way through!Continue reading
The best movie, I really truly think, is the one I will be reviewing on Sunday, Pari. It gets at the pain and sacrifice and terror of motherhood in a really visceral way. But these are all good too, if you want to sob and sob about the misery of being a mother.Continue reading
Happy Mother’s Day! I already put up a song post, and I was going to do a post on stories that haven’t been done before, but then I started thinking about it and instead did a post on unexpected mothers. Which means I was still looking for a theme for this week and I have chosen…..GENDER FLIP!!!! What famous father roles could/should be played by mothers instead?
Happy Day Before Mother’s Day! I was going to write a fanfic of mother stories for tomorrow that aren’t the usual ones, and then I realized a lot of them had already been in films and I had just forgotten. So let’s celebrate those unusual mothers!
Happy Monday! Almost through to May, and it is finally springlike weather here. All thanks to my system of putting away my winter sweaters on Easter. Without that, spring would never come.
I don’t know why nobody seems to know what to do with Madhuri. She is so wonderful and amazing, and ever since her post-children return to the industry, she isn’t getting the platforms she deserves. But I have ideas!
Mothers and sons, that’s appealing, right? Depending on which side of it you are. If you are the daughter-in-law, it may incite crazed flashbacks of “JUST TELL HER WE AREN’T COMING FOR THANKSGIVING!!! STAND UP FOR ME FOR ONCE!!!” But if you are on the mothers’ side, or if you have no dog in this fight as yet (like me), it is very appealing.
Happy Mother’s Day! I could post something about Mother India or Aradhana or English Babu Desi Mem, one of those where the mother-son relationship is super important. But it’s not a day for mothers and sons, it’s a day for mothers! So instead I am posting about a movie in which a Mother gets the spotlight all to herself.
