Cool Mom

Headshot-Final-RetouchCool Mom.com is the comedic brain ooze  of Daphne Brogdon, TV host, standup comic, wife of chef and mom-of-two  and  step mom.  Started primarily as a site for comedic videos for moms.  Blogs grew along the way.  It’s not just about parenting per say, but  also humorous slants at  politics, pop culture and palate.

Cool Mom is a place where moms & dads can share a laugh over situations and stories that they can relate to. If you are new to this site watch these faves:1 or 2 or the two that tied for the Coolio award last year Rex’s wallet service and Just one.

  1. Hi Daphne! I just stumbled across your stuff this week, by clicking on the muffintop video you made that I found thru Shannon Bradley-Colleary on the huffpost, where I write. I love love love it! Today, when I looked at your site for the first time, I saw the scarf thing and cracked up. Great minds think alike, since that was sort of like my latest post… which is the better accessory, a scarf or a husband? I’d like to post your video on fb. Bu, alas, I don’t know how. ;)
    Anyway, nice chatting with you. Keep up the funny. Julie

    • Thank you so much. I will check you out. Click on “moms with scarves” and it will go to the you tube. either copy and paste the url or hit “share” and it will be easy. please share away!

  2. Hey Daphne,

    I wanted to reach out and introduce you to Bag Beautiful (bagbeautiful.com). Our mission? to save handbags everywhere and keep closets in order. The goal of Bag Beautiful is simple: to save people’s valuable time when going about their daily life, and to keep their luxury handbags in great shape. Think of a shoe tree, but for handbags.

    With that said, I have visited your blog and I am impressed with the content you provide and the interaction with your subscribers. There are some great opportunities for us to work together in regards to content, dedicated emails, and promotions to name a couple.

    I believe your readers would love to learn about Bag Beautiful and I would like you to be one of the first to introduce the product to your users.

    Let me know what you think. I look forward to hearing from you!


  3. Hello..I saw the Ricki Lake show and I was sooo pleased to see that i’m not the only one losing my mind.(lmao). I was a very young teen mom and now i have a toddler (3yr. old…along w/ 10 yr old) and I really enjoyed hearing stories of mom’s losing their temper and knowing I’m not alone…ie:popping eye blood vessels..just trying to get kids to bed…and hearing mom’s dirty confessions on the show really helped me to just try and have other mom’s to talk to helps soo much…Thanks again!

  4. Hi
    I am sending you a piece of mine that is running online in The Washington Post – A Good Enough Life – it’s an adaptation of a lecture I gave at St. Mary’s College called Notes to My Daughter: On being a Woman. Here’s the link — http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/why-women-should-embrace-a-good-enough-life/2013/04/18/4b2b086c-a5db-11e2-a8e2-5b98cb59187f_story.html

    I have been blown away in the last day by the deluge of emotional responses I have been getting from women and men – who are struggling to get the balance right. I know you write thoughtfully about women and families and I thought you might like it.

    A bit about me: I’m a writer (author of Divided Lives, former staff writer New Yorker Magazine and Washington Post) and mother, wife – and everything maker…..

  5. Dear Daphne,

    Being an entrepreneur is all about facing up and rising to different challenges, overcoming the day-to-day demands, learning and planning for the future.

    In a new campaign e-commerce specialists Alibaba are celebrating female entrepreneurs. They want to encourage women to realize their vision and head down the path of creating a thriving and successful business.

    Alibaba are now offering a chance to win a mentorship from one of five successful businesswomen, in return for submitting your own story.

    Please find below a link to the trailer of the campaign. I would be extremely interested in having the campaign featured on your blog, carrying the message to other women.


    I look forward to hear from you.

    Many thanks,
