I'm Lindsay Ferrier, a Nashville wife and mother with a passion for family travel, (mostly) healthy cooking, exploring Tennessee, and raising kids without losing my mind in the process. This is where I share my discoveries with you, along with occasional deep thoughts, pop culture tangents and a sprinkling of snark.

>If you don’t feel like arguing the pros and cons of unschooling (and somehow, the homeschooling debate got thrown in there, too), check out my post on breastfeeding at the Nashville Scene’s blog. There are some interesting comments from people who believe that breastfeeding moms are “fat, anyway” and need to stay at home, or at the very least, use a blanket when they’re nursing.
Yeah, I know it’s Thanksgiving and I should be listing all the things I’m thankful for. But I figured you could use a break from the cornucopia of turkey blather that’s clogging the Internet today.
Or maybe I’m just a pregnant, broken-footed bitterman who’s spending the day cooped up with a toddler and bad holiday television programming, and who has nought but a Chinese all-you-can-eat buffet to look forward to tonight when her husband gets home from work.
*I’m updating EVERYTHING lately, aren’t I? Okay, so tomorrow on Dr. Phil, the topic is… Unschooling! Be sure and watch it if you’re interested in this topic. The homeschooling online community is already buzzing about the show, and not in a good way. Check out this post from one of the audience members. I had to skim, because it is lonnnng, but it’s also a very interesting behind-the-scenes look at how the Dr. Phil show is run.
