And So It Was Blogged (XXIII)

Friday, September 17, 2010

Mid-month already? I’ve said it many times before, we’re going to look up and it’ll be Christmas. Blink, and it’s the Fourth of July. Anyway, keeping up with the pace of things, here’s the Best of the Blogs—my rundown of what I thought were the prime bloggy cuts from this 37th week of 2010.

  • President Obama has a book coming out in November. This time it’s a children’s book: Of Thee I Sing. Those wonderful Obama girls, Malia or Sasha, “helped inspire” the book and appear on the illustrated cover … along with First Dog, Bo.
  • The number of stay-at-home dads in Canada is on the rise. One blogger, Curious Dad, did some digging and got the official stat: one in eight at-home parents are dads. Go, Canada! (Having a year of paternity leave helps this number along, I’m sure.)
  • One writer-editor dad, after enduring the boot camp months of new parenthood, wonders aloud on Salon.com about his answer to this question: “Don’t you just love your son?
  • In trying to battle NDM-1—the stronger, souped-up bacteria that laughs at antibiotics—pediatrician Dr. Alan Greene (of natural pediatrics blog DrGreene.com) says the “threat is accelerating.” Here he offers solutions on how to better protect our kids from this superbug.
  • Pointing to the recession as their reason, more NYC parents are going the One and Done route with having kids. The New York Post talks to some of these parents.
  • Here’s a funny, how’d-that-happen story in the NYTimes about how far one cute baby photo can go.

Have a great weekend, all.
