Links I've Loved Lately

I've seen a number of great articles & videos online lately, so I thought I'd share the love. Here are my top picks from the past week or so:

Look! Look! A Human-sized mannequin!
Three Huge Mistakes We Make Leading Kids…and How to Correct Them
I know, I know, the title is a bit "Three Ways You're Ruining Your Child's Life", but this piece has some really good points. Tim Elmore presents a convincing case on how overprotecting children & not allowing them to take risks truly hinders their development right into adulthood.

Best Coin Ever Spent (VIDEO)
I love me a good flashmob. I particularly love the ones featuring orchestras. This one is beautifully filmed & really captures the reactions of children who watched it. Hat tip to Bummies for posting this on Facebook.

Anatomy of a meme: The real story behind the Swedish mannequins that looked like “real women”
You've probably seen the image floating around the social media sphere in the last few weeks. The rumour that it was an H&M mannequin from Sweden is just that: a rumour. Jeff Yang tracks down the real origins of the image.

Pregnancy: It's Not All About the Baby
Kate Fridkis talks about the frustration of everyone telling you your body is no longer your own when you're pregnant. Very eloquently put & worth a read. Whether you're pregnant or not, you've probably made one of the comments she talks about.
