Look, celebrities? We're really glad you have kids that you seem to love to the end of the earth. Really, it is great! Better than going Mommie Dearest on them. But can we chill with the over sharing? You want to chew their food for them and eat their placentas? That is totally your business. Unless you make it our business by writing a book about it.
The latest offender in this arena is Mayim Bialik, forever Blossom/Six's BFF to us, currently out pushing her book Beyond The Sling: A Real-Life Guide To Raising Confident, Loving Children The Attachment Parenting Way. To be fair, the 36-year-old actress and mother of two with a PhD in neuroscience has been talking loudly about her kids and her parenting habits for awhile now—i.e., she still breastfeeds her three-and-a-half-year-old son, which you can learn all about on this parenting site without actually buying the book—but suddenly she's all over the place.
Things we can not un-know: She and her husband are letting their kids self-wean and are really not into expensive toys for their tots, or diapers. Or separate bedrooms. They co-share their beds and love The Sling. Which is to say, they really dig Attachment Parenting. And that's swell for them.
