I am going to get in the habit of these weekly wrap-ups because…
a. every blogger and their mother seems to do it.
b. I’m clearly a conformist.
So here are the weird things I read this week when I wasn’t sitting at Starbucks making frantic calls to people about funding for the water project in Ethiopia.

Kid president is at it again with his adorable charm and wise words. He recently created a short for Mother’s Day about supporting mothers. He pointed out that in our society it’s common and somewhat accepted for mothers to shame their peers based on their parenting choices.

Homework is an important part of the learning process. In truth, most students will tell you how difficult it has been to get the assignments done and some even ask, “Who can do my homework for me?” Most ignore it and tend to focus on something more fun, but in school, there is no way to avoid being homework so we better face it.
As a student progresses to higher levels in school, they can expect an increase in homework. … Keep Reading!!!
It is easier to hire a taxi when you are in a known location since you are familiar with how things work. However, when you are traveling or are in an unknown location, things can be a bit tricky if you do not keep certain things in mind.

Today would have been Audrey Hepburn’s 87th birthday, which seems pretty incredible given the fact that her image as a young woman still is one of the top telling images on merchandise, grossing multi-millions of dollars every year.
Most of millennials know the icon for her role in Breakfast at Tiffany’s as well as from other classic hollywood movies, but what most people don’t know was her strong desire to be a mother and her heart for humanitarian work.
The internet is once again in having a fit over another breastfeeding image.
Terry Richardson posted a photo of his girlfriend, Alexandra Bolotow, breastfeeding their twin sons as a tribute to the new mom on Mother’s Day.
The photo was a very raw shot, capturing the very relatable moments of the newborn stage. The image featured Bolotow nude and tandem breastfeeding her twins in bed. Any new mom can tell you this is a very normal depiction of breastfeeding and … Keep Reading!!!

I’ve been writing for I Am Not the Babysitter for a few months now and the one thing I’ve noticed is an overwhelming sense of community. Not everyone that follows the page takes the same approach to parenting or lifestyle choices but no one seems to bash anyone. It’s a wonderful concept but what happens when the topic of something other than parenting or breastfeeding comes up? I was inspired by the live Q & A with Dr. … Keep Reading!!!
