the gurgling of my dishwasher is a revered sound. It suggests order, productivity, and rest. All at the same time!
Today begins with a link to a piece on Pennie Brownlee’s blog. It rules. I want you to read this very much indeed. Here is a link to some research describing the physical pain of social exclusion. I always suspected that sticks and stones could break my bones but words could also hurt me very much indeed.
This link will take you to a write up of research suggesting that playing with Barbie dolls could limit girls’ career choices … if y’all over there at Oregon State would apply the same rigor to exploring the Lego Friends malarkey that’d be great …
Finally: a few months too late for this mama but hopefully useful for someone else … how great are THESE – reusable pouches for your homemade purees! I cringed every time I sent a disposable fruit-filled empty to the landfill. But I sent them. Cos my baby ate them. (Sorry Al Gore!) Ain’t that the thang?
