Since people keep congratulating me about the NY Times gig I mentioned in my post of April 1, I thought I had better mention it was an April Fools Day prank. I mentioned that in the comments, but apparently some of you are not as obsessed with this blog as you should be and *gasp* don't read all the comments. I'm telling you, you're missing out. The comments are where the action is.
Speaking of which, I think the famous Dooce may have set a record on her blog with 475 long and passionate comments when she posted about what is apparently the most controversial of subjects: How to Get Your Kid to Freaking Sleep Already."
The funny part to me, as a non-mom, is that Heather's kid sleeps good and wakes up good and is normal, but that isn't enough for some people - nope, they claim she wrecked her kid's life by letting her cry alone for a some nights until she learned to sleep by herself.
Sounds like fundamentalist parenting at its best - if you don't do it our way, you - and your offspring - are damned for all eternity.
But that's just me, and what do I know? I didn't even have kids because I KNEW that, with me as a parent, they would be messed up for all eternity.
