On not piercing your daughter's ears before she can consent. Yes!

I'm over here less than two months away from meeting my second child, and the sadness is creeping in that my days as a mother of one, and all these special, silly moments we experience, just the two of us, are numbered. So obviously this made me weepy.

I hate to get political, but then again, it seems parenting in and of itself has become a political act. This article perfectly describes the panic parents feel when deciding whether to vaccinate.

This has been making the rounds on the internet for a few weeks, but oh man, is it important. The mental exhaustion of being a mom is so much more than the men in our lives realize. It's a full-time job all on its own!

Bravo!

TBH, this kinda bums me out. I didn't eat my placenta, but it was definitely something I was interested in doing and just didn't have the balls to ask about [because I was embarrassed, not because I couldn't stomach eating my own organs, for the record].

YOU GUYS. Ian Somerhalder saying he basically impregnated Nikki Reed under false pretenses? Isn't tampering with birth control [i.e., "stealthing"] currently being considered for addition into the definition of rape? This definitely qualifies, too, then! *cue feminist rage*

Same.

This article about a young transgender girl is heartbreaking, but also gives me hope because her parents educated themselves and learned how to advocate for their sweet girl. 

Repeat after me: my daughter is not my property.

Last but not least, a two-fer: which side are you on? Team Go Dad or Team I Won't Pat You on the Back for Parenting?
