Raising Kids...the Reductionist Way
If you nursed your baby, you may have had the unfortunate experience of pumping your breast milk through one of those horrendous torture contraptions that smashed nature's nectar right out of your once-perky love bags.
Or, unlike me, you may be the rare Earth Mother who actually enjoyed breastfeeding and all the required boob suctioning it entailed. More power to ya, weirdo;)
For me, just thinking about those plastic trumpets poking through my hands-free pumping bra while I hid inside my closet-sized office to pump milk on my lunch hour puts me right into a panic attack.
Luckily, those days are behind me, but I'm overjoyed I held onto one remnant from my nursing days, and have since turned it into a positive. I'm talking about my leftover Medela breast milk storage containers. In this blog post, I share Reductionist tips for the myriad ways you can reuse these babies.
American breeders like me shell out tons of money on birthday gifts for their childrens’ friends, often putting a squeeze on tight budgets.
In this post, learn why and how I executed an Experiment in Disrupting Social Constructs for my son's 5th birthday--by asking parents to re-gift something their kid no longer wanted.
