smockmomma: May 2009 Archives

well, this may be good news. . .


while i'm not usually overly impressed with anything "medicinal" coming from canada, it seems morning sickness may be linked to a baby's intelligence. no wonder my smocklings are so gosh-durn smart.

Women who felt nauseous in the first few weeks of pregnancy delivered brighter children, according to a study conducted at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto. Nausea could signify that conditions in the womb are good for the baby. The study involved women who were pregnant between 1998 and 2003.

from an article by bruce watson at walletpop:

Now that Memorial day has passed, Levi's has begun outfitting its mannequins in white. This year, however, the bright color doesn't just represent the beginning of the summer or a nice accent for denim. Rather, the jean giant has also begun using white to demonstrate its support for gay marriage.

The White Knot program encourages people to demonstrate their solidarity with marriage equality by wearing a small piece of knotted white ribbon. A subtle symbol, white knots have appeared on the clothing of celebrities ranging from New York's Mayor Michael Bloomberg to comedienne Kathy Griffin. And now, of course, they are appearing on hundreds of Levi's mannequins.

monday music


i watched the original bridget jones this weekend. i forgot what an endearing little picture it is. of course, considering that i adore renee and colin firth melts my butter, makes the experience that much more enjoyable.

i also forgot how fun this particular song, featured in the film, is. this isn't the best video quality, but the song remains the same. enjoy!
