just in time for the weekend!!
Hope all the mamas and the papas and the kidlets out there in geekland have been happy and healthy. Our house played host to a gnarly and aggressive bug (virus? couldn’t tell ya) but we’re all good now. Nothing makes me appreciate my awesome immune system like giving it a sick day.
This is a review of the fantastic book I am reading. After Birth by Elisa Albert. It is utterly amazing and that is all I have to say on the matter at this time.
Here’s a little something from Scientific American about the changes to a new daddy’s brain, and if you can make it through this video about motherhood without shedding a tear, you are a stauncher mama than I. It’s just about 3 mins long and very nice indeed. Thank you Auntie Bee.
This is a link (courtesy of Keryn) to some info about a research study just published in the journal of Pediatrics and Child Health … it’s about the wellbeing of children in Christchurch and I know for a fact I am not the only baby/family person in our district who is scratching our heads a bit about it. Sounds like the researchers might be, too.
Finally: fifteen minutes of lo-fi inspiration and delight, this is super magnificent Courtney Barnett’s most excellent Tiny Desk Concert.
