The Hunger Games actress Elizabeth Banks has started the mother of all wars. During an interview withPeople magazine, she stated that you’re not a real mother until you’ve had more than one child. (quote) “Two is very different from one. When you have one kid, you feel like you can jet set around and you can throw him on the hip and you get your life done. You don't realize how easy one is until you have two. Now I'm really a mom.”
An interesting perspective, for sure. It’s stirred passions on both sides: Moms with a flock of kids and moms who “have it easy” with one child.
Every mom believes her newborn baby is adorable. In fact, most believe that their newborn baby is the most beautiful baby ever born.
This delusion isn’t even so much about pride as it is hormonal. Moms are actually wired to think their babies are amazingly beautiful because they need to feed and protect that baby no matter what. It’s one big reason the human race has survived.
Regardless of how wrinkly, skinny, noisy or smelly that baby really is, moms have no choice but to adore that baby and believe in their hearts that the baby is the cutest little creature they’ve ever seen.
According to a new survey, more than a third of Americans are self-diagnosing their illnesses and injuries on the Internet.
A full 35 percent end up handling their medical problem on their own.
The survey also shows 77 percent of these people start their online medical searches with a search engine instead of a specific health site (13 percent) or social networks such as Facebook (1 percent).
Of course, health officials are worried because the quality of this information is often questionable. You mean the stuff on the Internet isn’t always true?
