It's been another big news week. From the light (a royal baby shower!) to the deep (miscarriages among immigrant women in detention), here's what we're reading around the web this week.
- “I fell deeper into the vortex that is motherhood. Loving every moment of it, forgetting to take care of myself or my relationship…” Mother Mag looks into staying together for the kids, and why one writer decided not to.
- As if we needed to be told, research finds that it takes six years to recover from the sleep deprivation that comes from new parenthood. So, what does that equate to when you’re a three-child family? Asking for a friend.
- Terrifying and heartbreaking. There has been a sharp rise in the number of miscarriages among women in immigrant detention, with the rates nearly doubling in the first two years of President Donald Trump’s administration.
- “Influencer” is certainly one of the newest (and scariest?) professions that seem to be making the list of what our children want to be when they grow up. But what happens when that career starts in childhood? The Atlantic took a look into the lives of child influencers.
- A study finds that a greener childhood leads to a happier adulthood (stay tuned on this – we’re currently writing a piece on why everyone seems to be moving out of the city … and for good reason, it seems).
- It’s not the kids who make us unhappy, it’s the (NEVER ENDING) expenses that come with them.
- Not going to lie … We would have loved to have been a guest at Meghan Markle’s NYC baby shower.
- For something much lighter … Bring on the nights when the partner is out and nostalgia is in order, because The Baby-Sitter’s Club is coming to Netflix!
