My hands, hard at work.Here’s the links. I’ve been down with a stomach bug most of the week, and didn’t write as much as I normally do, but I had fun with what I did write. The news item of the week, of course, is the NYT snarking on moms who blog.

Did You Really Call That Kid A D-bag?Strollerderby – While the mean girls are ruling the playground, some of their mamas seem to have a potty-mouth problem.

The Baby Sleep WarsStrollerderby – The bedtime battle is as old as parenting. You want to sleep. Your kid wants to stay up all night watching cartoons and eating sugary cereal from the box, which is what he’s sure you do after bedtime.

Study Shows How Free Formula Affects Breastfeeding RatesStrollerderby – A new study of Canadian women reveals that new moms sent home from the hospital with free samples of formula are less likely to exclusively breastfeed.

Can Kids Be Taught To ReadStrollerderby – Probably, you remember being taught to read. Methods vary: children are taught reading by phonics, by memorization of sight words, by Montessori techniques. But pretty much all of us are painstakingly led down the path to literacy by teachers, parents, librarians, and any other adult involved in our early development.

Recess Coaches Teach Kids to Play NiceStrollerderby – Does your kid know how to play hopscotch? Mother May I? Dodgeball? Is she in peril of spending her recess period lounging under a tree with a friend, not playing any games at all?

    Thanks! We've struggled with sleep here for years. As I said in an earlier post, it's our parenting albatross.
