-Two-kid world vs. Orthodox World. A fascinating pair of posts this week explore the challenges of having a large family when societal expectations differ wildly from place to place. Jordana described how her suburban New Jersey enclave does understand or even try to accommodate her five-kid brood, while Ruchi responded with her experiences raising seven children in an Orthodox community, where large families are the norm.

-Ten Ways Winter Makes Moms Feel Crappy About Themselves.  Tamara’s post about all the inevitable kid disasters that occur in winter that make us feel like substandard parents resonated with a lot of readers. Between gloves that never stay on, germaphobia, and endless T.V. marathons, this winter just won’t let up! Stay warm, people–we’ll get through this together.

-Mayim Heads to Kentucky for her Biggest Speaking Engagement Yet. The actress talks acting, academia and neuroscience at Morehead State University for 3000 people. She also jogged in frigid temperatures!

-My Son on the Autistic Spectrum is Going to Day School. Benay shares her success at mainstreaming her little boy into a Jewish day school, despite her earlier predictions. This week, he celebrated his first siddur ceremony–Mazel Tov, Benay!
