It’s the day after Thanksgiving, and my husband, our four year-old son, and I are coasting through the hills of rural Kentucky. Two days before, we’d driven from Brooklyn to Indiana to visit my family. Now we are en route to the Ark Encounter: a life-size recreation of Noah’s Ark, which happens to be nearby.
It’s been a heavy news night, hasn’t it, poppets? And on Halloween, to boot! So I think it’s only fair that we wrap up the evening with something pleasant: President Barack Obama flexing with a tiny Superman.
Still haven’t got your Halloween costume squared away? Well, perhaps some time in the archives will offer a solution. For instance, you could be a cranky cat, like this girl watching a Halloween parade in Anaheim, California, in 1962.
Last week, Donald Trump was widely criticized for kissing a young black girl who was brought on stage at a rally in Green Bay Wisconsin.

Mike Lanza, a dad and tech entrepreneur from Menlo Park, California, thinks we’re experiencing a crisis in child-rearing: Boys aren’t allowed to play rough or run free, and moms hover nervously at the margins of children’s social worlds, chirping reminders about sharing and playing nice. The result, he explains in a…

It’s Friday. You made it through another treacherous week and even have a woman Democratic presidential nominee. Celebrate by watching a gaggle of adorable babies learn how to swim.
In New York City, a woman cop says her superiors won’t allow her to breast pump at work, which is like forcing her to endure 10,000 tiny daggers stabbing her from inside her boob while starving her child and saying, “just deal with it.”
On Saturday morning, a man at a Kentucky Cinemark theater turned to confront the child kicking the back of his seat. Things escalated quickly.
In June, American Girl launched its first wholly new collection in a decade: WellieWishers, which are slightly smaller and targeted to a younger demo, specifically girls five to seven.
A woman in Kansas City, Kansas has given birth to three sets of fraternal twins in around two years. Yes, you read that correctly: Six children, two years, one woman, and what we can assume is zero sleep, and all without fertility drugs.
The anti-vaccine movement has met its newest foe, and it is a 12-year-old boy who loves lizards. Several anti-vax organizations have been pooling their collective intellectual powers for weeks to try to debunk, discredit, or “unmask” Marco Arturo, a budding scientist who made a viral Facebook video about vaccines.…
“Wife and I watch a few episodes of Catastrophe,” a recent subject of New York magazine’s endlessly addictive Sex Diaries series wrote last week. “‘So us!’ we say, like every other overworked, undersexed Amazon subscriber of the land,” he continued.
