Things That Leave Me Scratchin’ My Head {Coffee Talk}

Coffee Talk1. I love coffee. No, you don’t understand, I. Really. Love. Coffee. But there are times when drinking coffee is inappropriate, the biggest being during a funeral. Apparently, Robinson Funeral Home in South Carolina doesn’t agree. They’re attaching a Starbucks to the funeral home. This is just so weird.

2. So the guy who brings us Dance Moms is in the process of creating a new reality show about wait for it…

Extended breastfeedingBlank stare. Don’t get me wrong, I applaud women who breastfeed. I breastfed all four of my children. But do we really need to see a TV show about women who breastfeed their preschoolers? Didn’t we get enough, ummm, titillation from the Time cover a few weeks back? What will be gained from this? An educational program this won’t be. Exploitation of the families and furthering misperceptions about breastfeeding? Possibly.

3. The Penn State report was released, is anyone surprised that the powers that be covered up Sandusky’s raping of little boys to protect the University’s reputation? Seriously, when did the welfare of children start taking a back seat to a football game? I hope others who find themselves in a position to get a child out of danger see this as a cautionary tale and do the right thing ~ don’t just tell but follow up and make sure that it doesn’t happen again.

What had you scratching your head this week?
