The Sunday Serving

Apologies for no SS last week. Something had to give in the increasingly busy superhighway that is my life and I sacrificed the Serving. Mea Culpa.

However, it’s now back and better than ever. Enjoy.

Denim-print Nappies – This is the kind of thing that could only happen in America.. “The Coolest You’ll Look Pooping Your Pants”. Genius. Can I have some, please?

Dreams of a Life – The other day, somebody I follow on Twitter wrote “Wow” and then posted a link to this story in The Guardian. I followed it, just because that’s what you do on Twitter. Wow, indeed. This woman was found dead in her flat. She’d been dead for three years and nobody noticed. She was young, beautiful, and going places. As happens in the media, the story came and went, with very little information about the woman. So a documentary filmmaker decided to take over where the media left off and find out more about Joyce Vincent. Really interesting.

Banning buggies at Heathrow – Wonderful. I hope this doesn’t happen. After our initial foray into air travel with Baby, I can unequivocally say that this would make me consider holing up on dry land for the rest of my life. Or at least until Baby can handle a Trunki.

The Global Difference in Baby Making – I found this wonderful series of posts on the Mummy in Provence blog about the different ways childbirth is handled around the world, written by bloggers who have experienced it firsthand. Fascinating.

Teacher vs Parent – A friend recently posted a picture on Facebook showing the difference that time has made in the parent–teacher dynamic. In 1969, the picture shows parents berating their child in front of the teacher, asking “What’s up with those grades?” A present-day picture shows the same scenario, except this time the parents are directing the question at the teacher. This article written by a teacher about the parent-teacher relationship is enlightening.
