I saw this meme getting passed around on Facebook, and it makes me kind of want to say a thing.
You see, we sciencey people, we kind of have a love/hate relationship with memes. On the one hand, they can be really good at visually or succinctly illustrating a scientific concept in a way that often scientists cannot. But by virtue of their succinctness, they

Richard Scarry has created more than 300 children books in his career, dating back to 1949. He’s been quietly re-writing many of them, to adjust to society’s growing understanding and acceptance of gender roles and cultural relations. In fact, the changes have been there since 1991 and no one has taken much notice. It was Alan Taylor, a senior photo editor at The Atlantic, who noticed the changes in his child’s version of Best Word Book Ever and posted them … Keep Reading!!!

Just because I’m her Dad doesn’t mean I’m going to assume she’ll go with me. You ask out a lady like it’s the first time every time. Always keep her guessing, always try to win her. I don’t care if
Derek Dillard, Jill Dillard’s (nee Duggar) husband, posted a cute photo of himself and son Israel to his Instagram account, this weekend. The accompanying caption read “Babysitting this guy this morning”. Comments immediately began pouring in upset over the caption.
Most of the comments took umbrage with the use of the term “babysitting” by a father referring to his own son. On the other side of the fence were people complaining that it’s all semantics and the word doesn’t matter.… Keep Reading!!!
When speaking to a new parent, or parent to be, it seems to be human nature to offer advice. For most, it boils down to the same three pieces of advice. And trust me when I said, you aren’t the first person to tell them this, and you won’t be the last. We have all done it. I recognize that it really does come from a good place and there is no ill will attached. I am in no way … Keep Reading!!!
With his briefcase and lunch in one hand, this drenched dad has gone viral for keeping his son dry.
Of course, he could have just carried his son and had his son hold the umbrella and both stayed dry. Umbrella user level – amateur. Dad level – swoon.
Every parent knows that toddlers are like a foreign species, not quite like the rest of us humans. You just can’t top a hilarious toddler conversations. But Matthew Clarke and his friend David Milchard thought they’d give it a shot. They put together videos reenacting conversations Matthew and his daughter Coco have and it is fabulous!

1. Each gets $750,000 if they graduate from an acceptable, sorry “accredited” university. They also need to write 100 words on how they plan to … Keep Reading!!!

Gemma Colley learned the hard way that spray tans and breastfeeding don’t mix. She had a wedding to attend and decided to get a little spray on glow to feel her best.
I am not a bad mum who would ever intend on harming a child. Just a very forgetful one that happens to be going to a wedding at the weekend and doesn’t want to look like Casper the friendly ghost in a bright yellow dress.
After her tanning … Keep Reading!!!
Attempting to Prepare for Twins
I’ll admit it, I found it very hard to be excited about my twins while I was pregnant. I had moments but most of the time it was sheer terror about what was coming our way. Previously, I wrote about some of these struggles; It’s Okay to Not Be Excited About an Unplanned Pregnancy. As my July 20th EDD approached this fear only intensified and I was 50/50 wanting them out because the pregnancy … Keep Reading!!!
I have always just fallen into the natural parenting category. Not to fit in anywhere, not to feel superior, just because it’s what felt right for our family. I got so offended by people saying “crunchy” parents were nuts or weird. That is until the experience that made it dawn on me, and made me blue. A local cloth diaper “expert” made a facebook post on her business page demanding her clients back her up on fighting against the use … Keep Reading!!!
