For this week’s Two-fer, I’ve got a couple of posts you might want to not only read, but to bookmark for future reference and to pass on to your friends.
“Where a baby sleeps is not as simple as current medical discourse and recommendations against cosleeping in some western societies want it to be. And there is good reason why. I write here to explain why the pediatric recommendations on forms of cosleeping such as bedsharing will and should remain mixed. I will also address why the majority of new parents practice intermittent bedsharing despite governmental and medical warnings against it.”

And from my friends at Planet Green, Handmade Music: Make Your Own Instruments From Scratch:
“Creating your own music is like growing your own food. Those who play music, play for sustenance. Musicians are driven by an inner desire to create. Often, it is this innate craftiness that leads music makers to improve upon their instruments and evolve their craft.”
There’s 5 DIY musical instruments from upcycled and recycled materials in that post, and they look like great homeschool projects – or maybe just for dad and mom to jam out with!
