Mom Jeans are a No No

Mom Jeans are a NO NO

Like most things, I am sure the mom jeans trend will make it’s way around and this mom is standing up and saying NO! Mom jeans are a NO NO.

Mom Jeans Commerical on SNL

My hatred for mom jeans all started with this 2003 Saturday Night Live Mom Jeans Commercial.

The Mom Cliche

When I saw this video I DIED laughing. My mom always wore wears mom jeans, as did most mom that I knew. I became a mom that year and the cliché of being a mom, driving a mini-van and wearing these jeans hit me like a ton of rocks. I was 24 years old with my first child. Most of my friends hadn’t had kids. I didn’t want to become THAT MOM, mom jeans, mini-van and all.

I’ve somehow managed to avoid the mini-van – even though, yes – I KNOW with 4 kids, a mini-van would solve a multitude of issues. Now I must stay clear of mom jeans.

This cracks me up – smash cake does not have an entry in wikipedia, but MOM JEANS does! Here is what wikipedia says about mom jeans:

Mom jeans is a humorously pejorative term for a fit of women’s jeans considered unflattering. The style usually consists of a high waist (above the belly button), which accentuates a flat curvature of the buttocks, as well as generous cuts in the stomach and leg. The jeans are usually in a light-blue solid coloring with no form of stone washing or fading. Other attributes of the style often seen are pleated fronts, tapered legs and elastic waistbands. The style is often accompanied by a blouse or shirt that is tucked into the jeans. This style of jeans was popular with women in the United States until the early 1990s, when lower rise jeans became fashionable.

I hate buying jeans. My body is not made for jeans, and I’ve come to accept this. And when a flat butt, most jeans end up looking momish on me, and that is not cool! Of the 2 pairs of jeans that I WILL wear (on rare – laundry needs to be done – occasions), they are the exact same style and fit, just in different colors. Why the hate on jeans?  I live in fear of wearing mom jeans.

The Blogger Behind the Blog

The Blogger Behind the Blog

nice to meet you

While here, my typical game is parenting,  technology and mom style  – I guess I should step out from behind the blog so you can meet me, the blogger.

Meet the Blogger

blogger behind the blog

Me (nerd) & my sister (socialite)

Konichiwa! I am Molly, the resident blogger here at Digital Mom Blog. I’m 33 years old, 1/4 Japanese (hey I’ll take what I can get) and married to my geek husband Sean for 14 years. We have 4 of them kids (see below).

I created Digital Mom Blog in February 2010 as a creative outlet and sounding board for my geekism.  I had been blogging for years for my kids, but wanted something different – so decided to put more of a focus and blog what I love, technology! While I am not huge on labels, “digital mom” seemed to describe me best. When not blogging here, I blog for Babble and Tommy Nelson.  And when not blogging, I freelance in the blogging and marketing arenas. Oh and I like to stay busy.

My family and I reside in Dallas, TX – though we call Austin our second home (so much so, I get regular PR requests from Austin – LOVE THAT!).  Word to the wise about Dallas, we’re not like what you see on TV. Well at least most of us aren’t.

Them Kids

Them kids is my endearing term for our termites lovelies. It was an adventure having each. Now each brings so much love, laughter and crazy to our lives, we wouldn’t have it any other way.

Conair Hot Rollers

How to Use Hot Rollers

Looking for HOT ROLLERS? Check out Conair Hot Rollers. 

For big, bodacious curls in record time, look no further than this set of Instant Heat jumbo rollers from Conair. A dozen 1-1/2-inch diameter rollers heat up in just two minutes, so you don’t have to start plotting three days in advance to get your curls in progress. Twelve clips are included to hold the rollers in place. This is a modernized version of the roller sets of yesteryear: it’s compact, lightweight, efficient, and the velvety covering on the rollers helps protect your hair from heat damage.

How to Curl Your Hair with Conair’s Extreme Instant Heat rollers

  1. Place ends of hair on roller and wind toward the scalp. Roll up hair firmly, and secure clip, crossing over roller. Do not place clip in roller slit.
  2. The firmness of the curl is regulated by the type/length of the hair and the amount of time the roller is left in your hair.
  3. For, firmer curls, leave rollers in the hair for at least ten minutes before removing. For soft, wavy curls, the rollers should be removed from the hair after a shorter period of time.
  4. Removing roller: hold roller in one hand while removing smart clips with the other. Gently drop roller (DO NOT PULL) and let curl bounce back after roller has been completely removed. Let cool for one minute for a firmly set curl, and then style your hair into a look that lasts for hours.
