A few weeks ago, I thought my memory could use some work. But after talking with some friends about my memory gaps, I've determined that I have a pretty good memory. I can remember little details around my childhood; lectures that I attended in college and loads of details about my time with my wonderful husband.…

My son is a picky dresser.
I've not been allowed to pick out his clothing for at least two years. Yes, I supply him with enough neutral pants/shorts so he generally matches, but it is quite clear that I am not allowed to pick out his shirts. If he needs new clothes, then he is picking them…

Are you buying gender appropriate gifts this holiday season?
As the mother of three boys, whose husband travels for work, I spend A LOT of time with my little men. It would only make sense that they have a lot of feminine exposure. If I come home with a new pair of shoes, they want to see them and tell me how cool they are. When a commercial comes on…

In a recent conversation with a friend who is CEO of a construction company, I explained how doing business with the government could potentially take her business to the next level. She shared her frustration at responding to RFP (request for proposal). She had bid on many over the years and each time, they were awarded to the same male…Continue

Welcome to the first installment of "All Kinds of Wrong" on the Multiple Mayhem Mamma blog.
You may have surmised by now that I'm somewhat sarcastic and have low tolerance for nonsense. As well, I have a penchant for all things referencing to the past, my youth and prior as well.
The combination of these two facts has resulted in something that I've wanted to do for a long time: analyze vintage television. Commercials and TV shows from bygone eras have both…
