** A collection of articles and other fun stuff from around the web. Mostly dealing with babies, parenting, moms, etc. But not always. **

19 Things we should say to our children (A great list of things we should say but often forget to say.)

Ashley Judd Slaps Media in the Face for Speculation Over Her “Puffy” Appearance (I love this article so much! Here’s an awesome quote, to give you a taste of it. “The assault on our body image, the hypersexualization of girls and women and subsequent degradation of our sexuality as we walk through the decades, and the general incessant objectification is what this conversation allegedly about my face is really about.”)

Is Modern Motherhood Working Against Women? (Another awesome article! A female CEO responds to a new book claiming that attachment parenting is bad for women.  “Maybe what is bad for women is the inability to have flexible schedules and work situations where nursing moms are respected and appropriate space is provided for them. Maybe what is bad is for parents feeling like it is not OK to say they have to be home for dinner.  Maybe what is bad is having to apologize to corporate America for even being a parent.”)

Outrage of the Week: No One Under 18 Allowed Outside Unsupervised in Florida Community (I just finished reading the book Free Range Kids — expect a review soon.  In the meantime, this is the kind of insanity that goes on these days (from the Free Range Kids blog).)

Addie can fill her own cup from the water cooler. Or bowl. You know, whatever.

Addie and I experience our first Passover Seder
