Make the Breast Pump Not Suck
This made me feel good about living in the U.S…except that part about how we are nearly the only country in the world without paid maternity leave…

Latest Parenting Trend: The CTFD Method
It’s Sunday and I haven’t had time to write anything, but here’s an entertaining Internet thing! A friend shared this with me a while ago. The CTFD Method. Ha.
Okay, Sunday deserves an entertaining video. Can’t post this one fast enough. Cuteness.

Anyway, a little YouTube entertainment for a lazy Sunday.

Gangs of New York
Another good article about twins, this one about twins in New York. Deals with the stress of a twin pregnancy, too. Poignant. I remember that time, waiting for the twins to come home from the NICU.
