68 < that’s how many times our inaccurate infographic was shared today.
Seven months ago, Jamie and I were discussing the topic of a post she was writing about the inaccuracies she recognized in media reporting. Even reputable media sources report inaccuracies in information or bend information to make it “sell”.

What’s in your attic? For most of us, the answer is probably, “A lot of junk.” There may be some old family photographs or useful artifacts up there, but generally speaking, it’s easy to haul something up to the top of your house and then stop thinking about it for awhile. In the classic novel Jane Eyre, Mr. Rochester kept his mentally ill wife locked in the attic, but unless you’re a character in that book, attic wives are … Keep Reading!!!
How many breastfeeding moms out there have heard one (or all) of these comments?
By Bridget McGann
Car accidents are relatively simple unless we’re talking about the most minor of fender benders. That said, there are some cases where fault is clearly established and others where it’s clearly not. Let’s say you’re in a car and a pickup truck driver behind is following at an uncomfortable distance. Then a person runs out into the road right in front of you and you have to slam on the brakes. If the car behind you then crashes into you, … Keep Reading!!!
This blog loves co-sleeping and breastfeeding. We love nursing to sleep. We love wearing our babies to sleep. We love cuddling our babies to sleep.
Jamie wrote here about co-sleeping. Co-sleeping is safe. Just like in a crib, there are certain steps that need to be taken to make a baby’s sleep environment safe. In a crib, there should be no bumpers or blankets – only a flat sheet. The same goes for co-sleeping!

Old Folks Laugh by Maya Angelou
They have spent their
content of simpering,
holding their lips this
and that way, winding
the lines between
their brows. Old folks
allow their bellies to jiggle like slow
rise up and spill

When old folks laugh, they free the world.
They turn slowly, slyly knowing
