    Oh no! Kailyn Lowry has some sad news to report. The Teen Mom 2 star is cancelling her upcoming wedding! So are things going sour with Javi Marroquin? Let's keep that rumor from spreading, shall we? These two are still going strong!  Isaac's mama and her Air Force sweetie are just fine, but they're still going to have to reschedule their big, fat Guatemalan wedding.

    The other day I noticed a sign at a gas station forbidding "minors" from pumping gas. I'm going to go out on a limb and assume it had something to do with liability, but I still rolled my eyes. Are we raising a generation of kids so inept that a teenager can't handle pumping some gas? Well, actually, yes. I've been hearing from parents, employers, waitresses, and myriad other adults lately that they're fed up with the stunted development they've noted in a number of today's teens. And parents, let me tell you, it's not just the kids they're mad at it ... it's the parents who are raising these immature teenagers! So parents, here it is, on behalf of your kids, I've got a list of the life skills they really should know by the time they're teenagers. Time to get started on your kids!

    If someone had told me that there were "mean babies" before I'd given birth, I wouldn't have believed it. How can a sweet widdle baby be mean? They're cute! And cuddly! And OMG, did I mention cuuuuuute? Of course, then I had a baby. And I found out what researchers at the University of British Columbia's Centre for Infant Cognition have now confirmed: some babies really are mean. Heck, read between the lines of their new study, and you get the sense of something every mother has thought but not dared say aloud.

    Ready to get mad? A 6-year-old boy has been given in-school suspension by his Texas school that administrators say will be in effect until his mom cuts his long hair. Because really, folks, why bother educating a kid with long hair? Don't you know he's already doomed? Yes, oh Internet, that was sarcasm. I happen to think JoJo Johnson looks absolutely darling with his long blond hair. And I'm appalled at the message this school district is sending to its students.

    You know there's no such thing as easy money, right? A couple in Utah thought they'd try anyway. Cops in Utah say Carol Lee Leazer-Hardman and Michael Condor stuck razor blades in donuts they'd purchased from Smith's Food and Drug store. It was apparently an elaborate scheme to get money out of the store. Crazy? Oh, I am JUST getting started. After loading the pastries down with dangerous shards of metal, cops say the couple decided they'd get more money if they actually ate them.

    It's a pretty amazing story. An Ohio woman finally graduated from high school this month at the age of 106. Imagine waiting nearly nine decades to get that diploma and finally having it in your hands. Inspiring, right? Oh, that's just the half of it. Wait until you hear the advice Reba Williams has for all us young whippersnappers.

    Remember when Glee was all about high school kids and wholesome high school problems like losing your virginity or being the knocked up cheerleader? Then Rachel Berry had to go and move to New York City on us and thrust us into all her adult problems. And this week's Feuds episode was no different. With Mr. Schue still mad at Finn for kissing his fiancee, the New Directions were performing mash-ups of songs from battling pop stars. And not to be outdone, the New York Glee kids were battling too: over some truly heavy stuff.

    For 22 years, a mom has been sitting on death row, haunted by a murder conviction. They said she was in on a plot to murder her 4-year-old son. Well, this week, Debra Milke's murder conviction was overturned. She's free to leave the Arizona prison where she expected to end her life. Talk about a bittersweet victory.

    Once upon a time he was just a guy looking for a girl to love him. Now Jason Mesnick is a dad! The Bachelorette and Bachelor contestant and wife Molly Mesnick welcomed a baby this week! The little girl is Jason's second (remember, he was already a divorced dad when he showed up on TV), but the first with the former Molly Malaney. The birth announcement is a big win for the show; it shuts down at least some of the criticisms that these relationships aren't made to last. But enough about the longevity of reality TV romances. All anyone really wants to know is the name the Mesnicks picked for their daughter, right?

    I've always loved Jennifer Garner. She's one of the most "real moms" Hollywood has to offer. So when I heard she has been telling her kids that it's against the law not to wear sunscreen, I wasn't surprised. She gets it! Sometimes it's OK to lie to your kids! Heck, sometimes you're doing it for their own good.

    When did being a woman become so expensive? Even the basic beauty routine can put a hurting on the pocketbook these days, and if you've got an addiction to something like nail polish (guiltily raises her hands), you might as well just tell the accounting department to divert a chunk of your paycheck to the local beauty store. Unless, that is, you are a devotee of the beauty hack? I'm talking about the little tricks that help you cut corners -- and costs!

    What a crazy week it's been for Jorge Bergoglio, or as we now know him, Pope Francis I. The former archbishop of Buenos Aires is the first guy from Latin America to lead the Vatican, and the first Jesuit pope to boot. Pretty amazing stuff, but here's what makes it even crazier: his childhood sweetheart says it almost didn't happen. Something happened when the new pope was just 12 years old that changed everything. Without it, he wouldn't be pope today.

    Alright moms, who is the worst person you could imagine being in the delivery room when you give birth? Your mother-in-law? Your FATHER-in-law? Hold that thought ... and imagine what it was like for a mom who gave birth in a Wal-Mart this week! The poor woman went into labor around 8 p.m. at a Wal-Mart not far from where I live (I've exchanged my SodaStream canisters there many a time!). Someone called 911, but by the time paramedics made it up the busy multi-lane highway and into the shopping center, she'd already given birth. With the help of perfect strangers.

    I'll say this for the Kardashian sisters; they're always willing to step up for each other. Maybe a little too willing. Tonight on Kourtney & Kim Take Miami, Khloe was put in a tough spot by Kim and Kourtney. And God love her, girlfriend took one for the team. It was the UK intro of the Kardashian Kollection, and Kourtney and Kim were doing the heavy lifting in London while Khloe started her new job as an X Factor host. Of course the girls all stayed in touch, and brash Khloe had no problem sharing via phone that she's been drinking plenty of pineapple juice because it's good for the lady parts.

    It's becoming a bigger and bigger issue: how does society bend to work with kids with autism? With the number of kids on the spectrum growing every year, it's high time society get on board with accommodating them, right? Of course, but now we've got a problem. What happens when parents decide they're going to hide their child's autism from society? Then what? How does society get on board? And why would a mom even want to hide it?

    Of all the dumb things I've heard public figures say, this one shoots right to the top of the disgusting meter. A Roman Catholic cardinal, one of the guys who actually helped vote Pope Francis into power last week, came out on the radio to announce that pedophilia is not a crime. While you pull your jaw up  off the floor, allow me to explain. Cardinal Wilfrid Fox Napier says when someone molests a poor, innocent child, it's really just an illness. And of course, you can't prosecute someone for being sick, can you? Can you?

    Oh for the love of Mike! Did you hear the latest complaint about Teen Mom and Teen Mom 2? The folks over at The Clicker are shocked, shocked I tell you, that the storylines rarely have anything to do with Jenelle Evans being a mother. In a story dubbed "Has Teen Mom Lost Its Original Message," the Today Show off-shoot criticizes the MTV reality show for trying to fit Jenelle's son Jace into the action. We're supposed to take this as proof that Jenelle and her co-stars are anything but the reality of teen parenting and join the chant to get Jenelle off the air, quick, quick! Pardon me while I roll my eyes.

    So, you brought your baby home from the hospital, and you're finally getting the hang of this new mom thing. Think you are the best mom ever? Well that all depends. Do you know baby CPR? Georgia mother Susanna Rohm sure wishes she did. When her 12-week-old little boy stopped breathing recently it wasn't Rohm who saved the little guy's life. Her neighbors, Rocky Hurt, 9, and Ethan Wilson, 10, had to put her through the CPR steps to bring little Isaiah back.

    Should you have to give up your gun if you have an order of protection against you? The answer should be obvious. But a Spokane, Washington woman named Stephanie Holten is speaking out to share the reality. Holten got a court order that barred her ex-husband from coming within two blocks of her. Twelve hours later, he was standing in front of her with a semiautomatic, pushing her into her house and telling her he was going to kill her.

    Remember Beyonce, super role model for girls everywhere, even the Obama daughters? Parents everywhere are listening to her much anticipated new song, Bow Down/I Been On, and wondering where that woman went. In fact, if this song is any sign of what's to come when Bey's new solo album drops, mamas, you're going to want to cover your daughter's ears. Female empowerment just lost a champion.
