Other “weekly challenges” I participate in that may or may not interest you:


Must investigate my children’s body reflexes.

In babies, much is made of the gastrocolic reflex, although it’s really a pretty simple thing – they eat, they poo.  Gastro = eat, colic = poo.  Kind of.

Well, my kids – of all ages, no exceptions! – have something even more special:  the pillowpeeic reflex.  Their heads hit the pillow and something goes off – URGENT potty break!  Is it the angle of their body?  Is it something in the cushiony fiberfill?

Science may never have these answers… but it’s definitely worth investigating.
