weekly summary, vol. 12

PAIL Posts This Week

  • Chandra‘s little SJ made her PAIL debut as the star of this week’s Memorable Moment Monday. Did you see her sweet little sleepy face? I don’t believe for a SECOND that such an angel would really keep her poor parents up all night… lies! Peruse the comments and see if you can find any other cute little people in the links provided (hint: you can).
  • SRB found a news item discussing prenatal depression and talked about how hard it can be to find support, particularly when there is such a stigma surrounding prenatal depression that we will actively work to hide it from others. Click over to read her thoughts on “Not Just the Baby Blues” and tell us what you think.
  • Josey gathered all of your monthly theme post submissions on your children’s exposure to television, computers, and other media in your homes. Curious about what other people’s kids are watching (or not watching)? Put away your camouflage and binoculars and pop on over to read all about Screen Time!

Featured Posts:

  • Chandra came across Jay’s post “Are you there universe? It’s me, Jay” about the downside of “coming out” as infertile in one’s work environment. Jay also considered how parenthood has altered her thoughts on taking risks in life (but not reckless ones). Pop on over to see more.
