Links We Love This Week

by ParentCo. January 08, 2016

Congratulations on making it through the first week of the new year. Only 7 more weeks until you finally start writing the date correctly on the first try!
Don't spend your hard earned money on "fun" that really isn't. Instead, adopt this "cost per units of fun" concept and use it wisely. This great think piece from The Atlantic gave us our new favorite dinner party question: When do you think you became an adult? We'd read any essay about the Golden Girls, but this one takes the cake. 30 Years Later, ‘The Golden Girls’ is Still the Most Progressive Show on Television The secret to a long and healthy life may not be such a secret after all. Do not. Let me repeat- DO NOT read these tweets (accompanied by photos) while you are drinking anything. This is your Friday laugh that will keep on giving. The best apps for creative people. This week, The New York Public Library released more than 180,000 items from their digital collections into the public domain. Photos, maps, manuscripts, streaming video, all available to use however you want. We've already lost 15 minutes to this Fifth Avenue Then and Now photo/google street view comparison tour. Grilled cheese, 25 ways. That's all. This couple tweeted the story of their unintended home birth and we couldn't stop reading. Games to play with your child in which you barely have to move or talk. (We could have used this during our New Year's Day hangovers.) 12244669_10153268880708404_3978678086021368172_o
