food for thought


Why French Parents Are Superior by Pamela Druckerman

This has been making a stir on the internetz, but if you haven't already seen it, it's worth a read.

{Of course, a lot of what Druckerman calls "French parenting" is what I just call "parenting." But maybe that's just because of how my parents parented my siblings and me.}


An interesting reflection on the difficulty of being a mother of one, written by a mother of nine.

"I loved my baby, I loved pushing her on the swing, watching squirrels at the park together, introducing her to apple sauce, and watching her lips move in joyful dreams of milk. But it was hard, hard, hard. All this work: is this who I am now?"


And how about something totally superficial? How much do you think I want this iPhone case?

If you guessed "a lot," you are correct.
