I‘ve been in such a reading slump lately. I‘ve started about 10 books in the last month but haven‘t moved past the 1st chapter before getting distracted or not feeling interested enough to go on. I‘m determined to finish this book I bought along with my kids homeschooling curriculum. This is a book I plan to pass on to my hubs when I‘m done, so I‘ve got extra motivation now.

Rough night here. Kiddo had a touch of food poisoning (we think) so everyone was up from 1245-3 AM. She seemed fine at the end of it, dad banished himself to the guest room, and I shared a bed with kiddo. She woke up energetic and feeling fine (we didn‘t) about six hours later but we‘re taking it easy today. I have lunch plans with a friend (eight months in the making!) so dad‘s in charge for a while. Wish us all luck!

jpmcwisemorgan I hope it was something that‘s passed! 3d

ravenlee Thank you everyone! @jpmcwisemorgan @cobwebmoth @RaimeyGallant today went really well. It seems to have been mild food poisoning and once it passed she bounced back fast. Now we‘re just trying to keep her in check rather than jumping back into everything full tilt. 2d
ravenlee @4thhouseontheleft I‘m just glad both our girls are doing well! And your vacation wasn‘t impacted. This has been a hell of a week for us - first our vacation got derailed so we gave up and came home, then last night...but I think things are looking up from here! 2d

“I have a neuroscience background - that's what my doctorate is in - and I was trained to study hormones of attachment, so I definitely feel my parenting is informed by that.”

• Up next. I started the 7th edition last month but it was on loan so I returned it and decided to start over with the latest version. I dislike that the content seems to have been completely overhauled; I was learning so much from the earlier edition. (This is one of those books that is good for highlighting and note-taking.) Thank you #thriftbooks for hooking me up with a super-cheap copy online--a copy I'll refer to again and again, I'm sure. •

Ok, premise is good: kids are less connected with nature and we need to take steps to reverse the trend. But the disdain the author shows for so many groups is self-defeating; and his conclusion is unsustainable. Rather than suggesting manageable steps to involve our family lives in nature he wants us to change the way cities are planned and redistribute the national population. Totally doable, right? This isn‘t a parenting book at all.

ravenlee Six down for #14books14weeks, best thing I can sat about this one. And I only paid $1.50 for it. 4d
LibrarianRyan @ravenlee Thats pretty bad if that is the best thing you can say. 😁 4d

• I've been reading so much about new motherhood, babies, and breastfeeding lately. Who would have thought I'd take to the subject matter so easily?! •

I‘m already getting pissed off at the author‘s obvious biases. So far he‘s made vaguely insulting comments about vegetarians (me) and now he‘s criticizing people who have “a hyperintellectualized perception of other animals.” This is not going the way I expected so far.

Just starting this one today. I admit I really struggle with this issue. I want my daughter to be active, to be adventurous. But I really hate the sweltering heat and humidity (good thing we live in Louisiana!) and I‘m really not ok with picking up critters and such. I love hiking and nature walks and pointing out fascinating stuff. Maybe this book will inspire me.
