Caitlin Moran that is.

See timesonline.typepad.com/alphamummy/

But then my children haven't really taken to Charlie and Lola, so I'm biased...

Oh she is well behind, we were talking about this on mn at least a year ago. she is obviously a crap mner

mummymagic Tue 21-Aug-07 22:40:57

Am I missing something? Its exactly like the one in Private Eye with all its !!!! and CAPITALS!!!

Or is it a pisstake?

paulaplumpbottom Tue 21-Aug-07 22:42:38

Who is Charlie and Lola?

SpeccieSeccie Tue 21-Aug-07 22:44:59

Bizarre. Is all journalism this easy?

moljam Tue 21-Aug-07 22:45:01

paulaplumpbottom are you serious?

paulaplumpbottom Tue 21-Aug-07 22:58:41

Never heard of them, my daughter is 4 maybe she is too young for it?

mollymawk Tue 21-Aug-07 23:03:52

Ah, yes, paulapb I have a DS aged just 4 and I have only just recently heard of Charlie and Lola.

I cannot believe there are people here who have not heard of Charlie and Lola.

Are you really for real?

Soren Lorenson is Lola's imaginary friend (who happens to look and speak just like her older brother Charlie).
My dd absolutely love C&L. Got her first book years ago and she has everything now. She is almost 7 and does not seem to be wavering in her love. But I did also catch her watching Tweenies the other day.
I think it is sweet. Maybe she will stay my baby a bit longer.
But actual fictional character gossip...that is a bit

ColdPenguin Wed 22-Aug-07 00:14:04

The gossip bit is not about the fictional characters!

Have you read the link in the original post?

It's great. I never knew that and I am just off to tell my husband. He will love it too.

DS is 2.7 and he recognises C&L at 20 paces... (and claims all other Lauren Child books are also C&L)

madamez Wed 22-Aug-07 01:03:37

I bet reading that will make Lauren Thingy feel really great about herself and her work, won't it. WHatever you and your DCs think about Charlie and Lola, it's a bit rough on any author to have fatuous self-obsessed journos speculating about one's unborn children.

Carmenere Wed 22-Aug-07 09:05:26

Ouch that's a bit personal Madamez! AFAIK Lauren Child doesn't have any children so will probably not come across it anyway. And as I said it has been out there in the public fora for quite a while and is hardly a secret.

Only confirms (once again) for me what a load of utter shite alphamummy is.

lucyellensmum Wed 22-Aug-07 09:31:08

i NEVER want to be an alpha mummy

she should be so ashamed...what on earth efect would that article ave on that poor man's family...I am actually getting more angry....where can i complain about that?

alycat Wed 22-Aug-07 09:46:54

Carmenere, quite likely she has a PR and cuttings service that lifts every mention of her name from the press/web and sends it to her.

So chances are she will see it.
