Motherhood, Alphabetized.

W is for… Wednesday Weird Parenting News


Welcome to this week’s edition of Weird Parenting News. This week we have good old dads (emphasis on old), sensitive hip-hop stars, and more. Read on to learn what’s going on in the weird world of parenting.

It must be something in the coffee. According to census data, Seattle now has the highest rate in the U.S. of men in their forties with small children (younger than six). The Seattle Times attributes this trend to a higher, more affluent population, where men are more focused on careers than marriage and children. Either that, or they finally quit their garage bands. Read the full story here.

Breasts, thugs and harmony. Hip-hop artist George Moss gained a new following when he tweeted a photo of himself cleaning parts of his wife’s breast pump. The photo, captioned #thuglife, has received more than 42,000 likes so far on Twitter. In response to readers’ praise, my new favorite rapper replied, “I’m getting too much credit for cleaning a couple bottles and suction thingies.” Read all about it.

This one’s nuts. Good news for peanut-allergy sufferers! A French pharmaceutical company has developed a new drug that will help allergy sufferers significantly increase their peanut tolerance. The drug, currently in the testing phase, is slated to be available in early 2018. Learn more here.
