Funny mom Jenna Elfman has her hands full with her 2-year-old son Story Elias, a new sitcom and of course a baby on the way! The 37-year-old Accidentally On Purpose star took time out to chat to Cookie magazine about fun family rituals, the challenge of breastfeeding and those long, sleepless nights.
On her son Story’s sense of humor: “He’s actually genuinely funny. He does funny voices and physical comedy.”
On her favorite family ritual: “After dinner, we chase each other around the house, laughing.”
On her most frazzled mom moment: “Trying to learn and master breastfeeding.”
On her current motherhood challenge: “How to get my son to sleep through the night!”
On losing the baby weight the first time around: “Because of the C-section, it was slow going at first. But the breastfeeding really helped burn the pounds off.”
On her own mom’s good advice: “That you can never give a child ‘too much’ love.”
On “coddle vs cry-it-out:” “Coddle. Sorry, but I’m sensitive.”

From a hobby to a successful business, Tiny Tag Designs has won the hearts of many mothers, sisters, little girls, teens and women across the country.
Melissa Clayton started Tiny Tag Designs after the birth of her second son. Since then it has spiraled into a prospering business. San Francisco’s View from The Bay recently interviewed Melissa about her recent success and growing company.
I was lucky enough to receive one of these adorable necklaces recently and was impressed with the quality and workmanship put into the jewelry.
The Original Disk Necklace came wrapped in a mini polishing cloth and then placed in an pretty little organza bag. Each silver disc is hand stamped letter by letter, oxidized (which turns the letters black), buffed and then polished.

Could it be one too many burgers for Rebecca as well?
Although it has not been officially announced, Rebecca Gayheart was spotted leaving a grocery store in Los Angeles with what appears to be a baby bump on Sunday (Sept. 20). After leaving the grocery store, the rumored-mom-be lit up a cigarette as she pulled away.
The day before, we saw the 38-year-old former Beverly Hills, 90210 actress and her 36-year-old Grey’s Anatomy star hubby, Eric Dane, at the car shop.

Christina Aguilera opens up about her abusive childhood in a new documentary.
The Beautiful singer, who is mom to 20-month-old son Max Liron, reveals that she turned to music to escape the fear she felt growing up with an abusive father.
“I witnessed a lot of unpleasant things – a lot of pushing and shoving and fighting and quarrelling,” she tells E!. “Growing up I did not feel safe. Feeling powerless is the worst feeling in the world. I turned to singing as an outlet. The pain at home is where my love for music came from.”
This isn’t the first time Christina has talked about her difficult childhood – it’s even been the subject of songs such as I’m OK and Oh Mother.
The Grammy-winner has said in the past, “It’s therapeutic for me to talk about it. It gives me a reason to understand why I went through what I did.”
Christina’s mom Shelley also describes a horrifying incident when she returned home to find Christina, then 4, with blood on her face.
“I scooped her up and said, ‘Oh my God. What’s wrong?’ She told me, ‘Daddy wanted to take a nap and I made too much noise.’”
It brings tears to my eyes to think of any child going through something so awful. Kudos to Christina for speaking up about it.
