All the parenting news you probably didn’t have time to read this week.
-Meet Melissa and Doug Bernstein. You probably already have their names on cute wooden toys in your house. Now, find out about the couple behind the brand. A few teasers: they have six kids (which comes in handy for product testing) and live in a 36,000 square foot home. (New York Times)
-The secret to being both a successful writer and a mother is apparently to have just one kid. Or so says Lauren Sandler in a highly contentious article (promoting her book One and Only). Here’s a list of female writers with just one child (Joan Didion, Mary McCarthy, Elizabeth Hardwick, Margaret Atwood, Ellen Willis.) (The Atlantic)
-Supermodels and their moms. A photo essay. This is from a few months back, but it’s worth posting now. Ah-mazing. (New York Times)
