Q: How Stupid Are Women Who Breast feed? A: Very?

Or something like that.

Apparently there was this whole study conducted, and the results showed that people do, in fact, hold biases toward women who got milk:

"According to the study breastfeeding mothers are viewed by potential employers as being "significantly less competent in general, in math and work specifically."

Only, oopsie: the study was conducted amongst college students, who don't know shit about shit anyway. Unless your study is about how to cheat on research papers or who they can buy some Aderall from, I think it's safe to say that those results probs don't mean a whole lot.

PREGNANT IN HEELS RECAP: I WANT TO COMMIT SUICIDE RIGHT NOW

Ok, you guys, I gotta confess: I was so excited when I heard about this horrible, horrible new Bravo show Pregnant In Heels, because I thought: FINALLY! A show I can recap for FIPS! It's about a pregnancy concierge named Rosie Pope! WTF is a pregnancy concierge! Who cares, this show will rule!

But after watching the premiere epi last night, I've been splitting my time between:

  • thinking of ways to kill myself
  • thinking of ways of destorying every viable egg I may have lurking inside of my body now and forever.

There is no way I can recap this show every week, because you might kill me before I kill myself.

PROOF THAT TOO MUCH DEEPAK MAKES YOU GO BAT SHIT CRAZY



Thanks to White Whine (a collection of first world problems) for this little gem. In case you’re blind, here’s what this eems says:

Hi Becky! This is Kaylyn’s mum. [SMILEY FACE]. I have a concern about the snacks that you’re serving to the kids. Today we were in the store and Kaylyn pointed out the type of cookies that you served at the teddy bear picnic. Much to my dismay they weren’t a name brand. My husband and I pay good money for childcare and we expect that corners won’t be cut in the care of our child. That and we don’t want to instill the sorts of values in her that make her think that it’s okay to settle for less than the best. That might be hard for you to understand, but it means a lot to me. “The more boundless your vision, the more real you are.” –– Deepak Chopra

KINDERGEDDON: What Do You Mean My Four-Year-Old Is Waitlisted?


Holy crap, I can't believe there haven't been riots in the streets of Park Slope already!

Last week, dozens of parents learned that shelling out for overpriced, attractively zoned apartments and brownstones doesn't actually entitle you to guaranteed admission at local top rated public elementary kindergartens like PS 107, 295 and 39.
