MARTHA MOMS - "You know them by the cookies they send to kindergarten - all the animals in Noah's ark carefully painted in six colors of glossy smooth icing.
Their Christmas cards always shine, tauntingly, in the mailbox on Dec. 1 - and not satisfied with photo cards from Costco, they instead make their own with metallic ribbon and arty black-and-white photographs that, of course, they took themselves.
They are moms who decorate one cake with their children and then save another to adorn on their own - ensuring its perfection.
They are moms for whom Martha Stewart is the goddess of handmade crafts, not a stock market scandal. They are, simply, 'Martha moms.'."
