Here’s something a lot of us can benefit from: The wonderful Fitness Alive Swim Academy has an upcoming meet and greet at Cloth on September 21 from 5 to 7 p.m., wherein parents can meet instructors (including the very popular Holly Waters) and sign up for classes and lessons on the spot before they fill up. (Cash and check accepted.) Also: Cloth will also be selling swimsuits and reusable swim diapers! Read more about the event here.

Love this helpful (and extremely reasonable) set of guidelines for preventing unhealthy eating habits in kids, including number one: No Dieting!

More fascinating work at The Science of Us, where they report on research showing that who we are as babies is basically who we are as adults.

From New York Magazine: “More Parents are Refusing to Vaccinate Their Kids, and That Is Very Bad.”

Hey! The new Early Learning Academy that we wrote about a few weeks ago just opened, with childcare, preschool and pre-K. There’s a grand opening celebration September 16 from 4 to 6 p.m., so families can check it out.

Careful, you could lose hours to this awesome round-up of the “30 Most Unforgettable Moments From The Oprah Winfrey Show” from newnownext.com. Why does this make me emotional?
