First and foremost, big thanks to Erin O’Donnell for the terrific job she did guest-blogging while I was in blissful away-land these past 2 weeks. I enjoyed visiting PNN as a reader, and I certainly learned a lot from what I read.
It was an eventful two weeks in the world of parenting news. Stories ranged from the controversial new recommendation by the American Academy of Pediatrics concerning circumcision to the births of celebrity babies toreality TV stars Snooki and Giuliana and Bill Rancic.
We were alerted to new warnings as well, including the dangers of colored laundry detergent gel-packs and the deceptiveness of products that claim to teach babies to read.
Perhaps the most interesting and intriguing story, though, was about the parents of twin newborns who were making their first airplane flight with babes in tow. The parents passed out candy to all the other passengers on the plane, apologizing in advance for any crying or disruption their babies might cause, and offered earplugs to anyone who was bothered. The debate that ensued was fascinating!
So again, thank you Erin for such smart coverage of such a wide spectrum of parenting news stories.
Oh, and thank YOU, readers, for taking the Parents News Now Facebook page to a thrilling milestone – we’ve surpassed the 1,000-follower mark! If you don’t follow us yet, “like” PNN on Facebook by clicking here.

Having Erin O’Donnell cover my blog while I was away on vacation was a treat in many ways. Primarily, of course, leaving the blog in her skilled hands allowed me to rest fully into vacation mode. But another benefit was that it gave me the chance to experience my own blog as you do – as a reader. I am so grateful to Erin for the opportunity she gave me to see the blog through fresh eyes, and to learn about important parenting news stories that affect us all.
In case you missed these, here are some of Erin’s posts that I found most provocative and informative.
Thank you again, Erin, for bringing such quality items to PNN!
