“I have two children 6 and 8 years old. I breast fed both but also bottle fed, pumped, used formula — I did it all. So I’m not trying to isolate moms who choose not to,” she says of her parody. “I support all mothers and know that we all have to do
Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson had a recent speaking engagement and allowed a little girl to come onstage and ask a question.
“How can first-graders help the earth?”
And how did the astrophysicist, cosmologist, author, and science communicator answer this big question? Well, not in the way one might expect.
He sat down on the ground, an attempt be eye-level with his stage-mate, and answered in the most beautiful and simplistic way…
Watch out parents! It’s about to get … Keep Reading!!!
I’ve had a lot of people asking me lately about how we home school. The great thing about homeschooling is that you can do it however you want. Homeschooling can be completely individual to your family. However, it’s also a really hard job, and I know it helps to have ideas on how other families make it work. To that end, here are some things that work for our family…
Much respect to all who rock at … Keep Reading!!!
Oh the tears! Beautiful and bittersweet.
Kelly Gunderson decided to record a conversation she was having with her 87 year mother who is suffering from Alzheimer’s. Amazingly, there was a breakthrough moment when Kelly’s mom begins to remember who she is.

On October 11, 1989, I gave birth to a 9lb. 13oz baby boy. He was my second child. He was healthy and took to breastfeeding like a pro. When he was 22 hours old, I was informed that his bilirubin level was 8, which meant he was jaundiced. Since this level was measured from the cord blood, they viewed that as being “high.” Treatment would require the standard photo therapy; keeping him under lights. Right before discharge, … Keep Reading!!!
In the second episode of HBO TV show The Newsroom, an idealistic executive producer bounces into the meeting room with a whiteboard, where (after accidentally knocking over the entire easel) she outlines the new direction in which she intends to take the evening news hour she and her team produces.

New York Mets player Daniel Murphy missed the first two games of the season after birth of his first child. Murphy’s wife was in Florida and happened to go into labor during opening day. He flew to her side to be present for the birth.
Murphy’s three-day paternity leave is quite standard for Major League Baseball players; Federal law allows fathers to take up to two weeks off work.
Not news, right?

So what led Fallon away from becoming a diagnostic psychopath? He says a nurturing environment during childhood.
This is what my friend Bridget said about Fallon’s conclusion: “This, right here, is why … Keep Reading!!!

Here is another (not so) Real Man of AP.
“Stranded in the midst of a zombie apocalypse, a man sets in motion an unlikely plan to protect the precious cargo he carries: his infant daughter.”
This short film was a Tropfest Australia 2013 finalist.
Watch the creative and heartfelt story below:
Do you remember the 5-year-old that was suspended from school for having a mohawk? A similar situation is happening to another family in the US.
An Oklahoma father was told repeatedly by school officials of his 7-year-old daughter, Tiana’s charter school, that he would have to change her hair style because dreadlocks are seen as “unacceptable” and “distracting”.
Tiana’s father, Terrance Parker, happens to be a barber and took offense to the accusations of his child not looking presentable for … Keep Reading!!!
