Wanda Sykes’ Parenting Revelation

Wanda Sykes' Parenting Revelation

Wanda Sykes hasn’t been a mom for long – she and her wife Alex welcomed twins Lucas and Olivia just 3 weeks ago – but she’s already learned some important parenthood lessons.

For instance:

“I realized that I don’t matter for s***. Basically. I don’t matter. Meaningless… It just puts everything in perspective,” Wanda tells Extra!

Though she admits she’s not getting any sleep, the New Adventures of Old Christine star shares that the babies are “great” and that she and Alex are enjoying the challenges of life with a newborn – or, in their case, two!

“They’re peeing on me. The little boy… I know I have to put a towel or something over top. But as soon as I put it on, he pees… It’s like the carnival. He’s after me,” she laughs.

Congratulations again to Wanda and family on the new arrivals!

Tried, Tested & True: You Can’t Go Wrong With Mom Jewelry

I have changed a lot since my children were born, and I can’t imagine many moms out there haven’t. I have heard such phrasing before, and I agree, it is almost like my heart just grew and keeps growing everyday, especially as my children are getting older. On this note, there is one item of jewelry that I never really saw myself wanting to wear, let alone tearing up at the thought of. I am referring to personalized mom jewelery, specifically gorgeous pendants where you inscribe your childs name/s.

My first brush with Sentimental Silver was very recently, long before Mother’s Day, and I of course did drop the name a few times to my husband, you know, about how much I would love such a gift. It was pretty specific, though come Mother’s Day I did not get my lovely silver gift. But I digress. This gorgeous silver tag would be a perfect gift anytime of the year.

This amazing product is handmade by mompreneur Christi Farr Johnstone, using .999% pure recycled silver, instead of sterling silver. The difference is vast, and you can pretty much guarantee that your Sentimental Silver pendant will hold up much longer than a sterling silver comparable, the reason being that sterling silver has less silver and is mixed with another metal, allowing to tarnish more easily. And as each one is handmade, they all have a ton of character, and really to me are an ideal gift for any mom.

    Katie Price & Peter Andre To Talk Custody

    A tanned Katie Price (aka Jordan), who turns 31 today, arrived back in the UK from the Maldives last night to discuss custody of her children with husband Peter Andre.

    Katie was accompanied by the couple’s two children, Junior 3, and Princes Tiaamii, 22 months, at Gatwick Airport.

    In May, the couple announced that they were separating after three and a half years of marriage. Andre, 36, reportedly met with his lawyers yesterday telling them, “Forget money — all I care about are my kids.”

    Katie also has a six-year-old son Harvey, whose father is footballer Dwight Yorke.

    Tried, Tested & True: Veggie Wash

    I used to pass right by the Veggie Wash in the produce section – and would rinse my fruits and veggies with water when I got home. My New Year’s resolution this year was to live a greener life – so in January I bought my first bottle of Veggie Wash.

    I don’t know what it was – but I instantly felt like I was giving my kids the best that I could give them. Veggie Wash is 100% natural and is made from corn, coconut and citrus which can remove wax, pesticides, soil, toxins and fingerprints from both standard and organic products.

    Using it couldn’t be easier – just spray before, or on the same day you plan to cook or consume it – scrub a little with your hands and rinse.

    Veggie Wash is designed for use on nearly all types of produce, including firm items such as apples and carrots, and softer items like leafy greens, grapes, and broccoli. They don’t recommend that you use it on mushrooms since they are porous and it could affect the taste.
