I'm a stay at home mom, military wife, amateur podcaster, overthinking blogger.
What is your blogging philosophy?
My blogging philosophy? I don't have a philosophy or a pedagogy, but I do believe blogs are powerful community builders as well as fun and informative outlets for people who love words. If blogging had been around in the 18th century, Jane Austen would have been all over it (not that I'm anything like Jane Austen).

In case you missed this news, a quick recap: Logan, a 39 year old mother of two and seasoned reporter, was in Cairo reporting on the latest uprisings. She was reporting for the show 60 Minutes and had a camera crew with her. At one point, while separated from her crew and security, she was surrounded by a group of Egyptian men who beat and sexually assaulted her for 20 or 30…


Modern Day Wet Nursing: Weird or Wonderful?

Posted on January 12, 2011 at 6:25pm 0 Comments

Wet nurses have been around to feed other women’s babies since women started having babies, but in the last few generations wet nurses have fallen out of favor, mostly because of the introduction of formula, among other reasons.

In 2007 a small series of articles noted a new minor reemergence of wet nursing, often in the form of cross nursing, when two or more women feed each others’ baby in a child care arrangement.  In 2009, while on a humanitarian mission to Sierra Leone, Salma Hayek…
