An actual town crier announced the baby's arrival outside the hospital He's here! The heir to England's has arrived, and while we know his birth weight (8 pounds, 6 ounces) and time (4:24 p.m. GMT), what of his name? Might Kate and Will go trendy with a Holden or an Asher, or will they stick with a more traditional route of royal nomenclature?
While we all venture guesses, here are some fun parameters your prediction should heed:

- The baby's official title is His Royal Highness Prince [name goes here] of Cambridge.
- Just like Madonna and Cher, royals don't require a surname.
- If they do need a last name for some reason (you know, if they're taking the SATs or something) they'll use "Mountbatten-Windsor" or "Wales." We think it should be amended to Middleton-Windsor-Wales for their newest addition.

When Kindergarten ended for my little girl last year, I reflect on her momentous school year and how far BooBoo has come. Last year may not have been my first rodeo, but I realize now more than ever just how different every child, teacher, and school year can be. No two early learning experiences are the same, and no two kids go through the same social, psychological, and academic challenges. One thing that all parents must feel though is that their little bundles are growing up too fast! It's with bittersweet emotion that I recount many of the most important - and toughest - things that I learned in Kindergarten last year as an assist to parents getting ready to take the elementary plunge.

“The whole notion of joint custody has become increasingly popular, and it’s extended down to affect very young children,” researcher Robert Emery explained to Yahoo! Shine about what prompted the study, published in the August issue of the Journal of Marriage and Family. “There’s been very little research into its effects, but lots of opinion.”

Google Glass is cool, but is it safe for young eyes?Google Glass hasn't even hit the market, and already tech reviewers everywhere are buzzing with questions about its viability as a game changer in the world of technology.Read More »from Is Google Glass Safe for Kids?
For those of you who don't know, here's a brief decription of what it even is: Google Glass is essentially a wearable computer, eyeglass-type spectacles that project a small image just to the top right of your field of vision. Basically, you wear it all the time, and therefore have the capabilities of a smartphone anywhere and everywhere, without even touching an actual device. You say things like, "OK, Glass, take a picture" and "OK, Glass, send a message to Dad." And it'll do just that - record video or send a message to your father.
But concerns have been raised about Glass when it comes to kids wearing the device, mostly because Google issued a warning on its Glass FAQ page about the use of its product by children. "Don't let children under 13 use Glass as it could harm developing vision. Also, kids might break

This photo makes me so excited for a new baby (also makes me want to learn how to braid my hair)Someone recently wrote the following comment on my friend's we're-home-from-the-hospital Facebook post: "Enjoy every second of motherhood!" Clearly the person who typed that was just spewing out a cliché, but I knew this particular new mom was having a tough time adjusting (healing from an unexpected C-section, sleep deprivation, latching issues, etc.), so I wrote her a message. "Um, you do NOT have to enjoy every second," I typed. "Some seconds (or even minutes or hours) can really suck. But it does get better!" I wanted to take off some of the "you have to be happy all the time now that you're a mom" pressure. She wrote back with an appreciative "ha!" and shared a moment she definitely had not enjoyed (I'll spare you, but it involved a wardrobe change for both mom and baby).
Anyway, our exchange got me thinking about other things well-meaning people say to us when we've just given birth. Those seemingly harmless comments and questions that can chip away at our fragile new-momRead More »from The Worst Things You Can Say to a Woman Who Just Had a Baby
