I've been spending a lot of time here recently, and one of my guilty pleasures is reading urbanbaby.com. It's a website/forum for expecting/parent types, and it is wild. It's based in NYC, so I can read about how crazy preschool admissions are there, in addition to reading all sorts of heated debates - like cosleeping, home birth, breastfeeding, natural childbirth, etc.
Living in LA, you don't often get to eavesdrop on other people, so urban baby is my way of finding out what is up in the world of competitive parenting. It alternatively makes me howl with laughter or freak out...but it's a good way to waste a few hours. I think I'm a bit more middle of the road than most of the people posting there, but they sure are fun to read!
This afternoon, my big project is to make some congo bars to freeze and pop out when it's time to go to the hospital...I'm losing energy rapidly, and really want to make sure I have something for those nurses!
