My girls never wanted to co-sleep with us.

It’s been a big week here at Kveller.

Tamara Reese announced her second pregnancy, and Amy Deutsch was outed about hers.

(The decision was reinforced when my son was an infant and we left him with a family member who kept him in his car seat by an open patio door for the entire hour and another family member who took him out in his stroller and left him in the middle of the street while he picked flowers. Was a night watching an overrated film and eating overpriced greasy popcorn worth endangering my son? Probably not. Read the rest of this entry →
