Celebrity mother knows best (or how to dress your baby)

Angelina Jolie shows off baby bump

If the bump on her belly is any indication, Angelina Jolie really is pregnant. The actress created a stir at Saturday night's Spirit Awards when she showed up with partner Brad Pitt on her arm and a noticeably pregnant bulge.

Jolie ignored reporters' questions on the awards show carpet, but People magazine reported on its Web site that a source close to the couple confirmed that she and Pitt are "thrilled to be adding to their brood."

Jolie and Pitt are parents of a 1-year-old daughter, Shiloh, and three children adopted from Cambodia, Ethiopia and Vietnam. Their adopted children are Maddox, 6; Pax, 4; and Zahara, 3.

For ‘EcoMoms,’ Saving Earth Begins at Home

Move over, Tupperware. The EcoMom party has arrived, with its ever-expanding “to do” list that includes preparing waste-free school lunches; lobbying for green building codes; transforming oneself into a “locovore,” eating locally grown food; and remembering not to idle the car when picking up children from school (if one must drive). Here, the small talk is about the volatile compounds emitted by dry-erase markers at school.

Perhaps not since the days of “dishpan hands” has the household been so all-consuming. But instead of gleaming floors and sparkling dishes, the obsession is on installing compact fluorescent light bulbs, buying in bulk and using “smart” power strips that shut off electricity to the espresso machine, microwave, X-Box, VCR, coffee grinder, television and laptop when not in use.

The 411 on Hiring a Nanny

The minute you hire a nanny, you're running a small business. And with that business come costs and legal implications that go beyond the base salary, including some you may have already thought of (like health insurance) and others you may not have considered (like gas money). Keep in mind that the information in this article assumes that you're paying your nanny legally. Though this will cost you more day to day, it's a lot cheaper than the legal fees you'll face if the IRS finds out you've been paying someone under the table.
