Looking at Life Through Facebook

I love TMNT. Can you tell? \ Image: Dakster Sullivan

Many parents start baby books for their children. Looking at my son’s book, I realized he won’t learn as much about his early years through his baby book as he will through my Facebook page and the posts I’ve written for GeekMom.

The Editors and Contributors of GeekMom are very excited (and not a little bit nervous) to announce today that we’re flying solo once again! What we mean is that we’re back doing this blogging thing all on our own now, as we did before we moved over to Wired last May. We are no longer affiliated with Wired.com. Six years ago, our founder and patron

Hello. My name is Cathé, and I’m a music geek. I admit to studying all sorts of instruments including (but not limited to!) piano, flute, bagpipes, and trombone. Three years as a music education major pushed me into broadcast production and ultimately into writing for GeekMom. With this in mind, you will understand that it is an honor to welcome our readers to Music Week

Last night my husband (Tim) and daughter (VIP) went to her Spring program which was the grand finale to her last day in pre-school.

Juggling And Balancing On The Tightrope

  We all know them. The moms who seem to be always doing. Whether they are balancing a chequebook in one hand whilst nursing a babe in the same arm, simultaneously talking on the telephone with the other hand to schedule a playdate for the other sibling, all the while going through the grocery list in their mind.

Something very strange is happening in the cinemas around the world. Whilst in our reality we constantly hear about equal opportunities, gender equality and the removal of the glass ceiling; the female role models we see on the big screen seem to be turning a blind eye to it all and living in a world of pink Cosmopolitans and Jimmy Choos. Please don’t get me

Ten Things My Geek-Brain Makes Me Do

Geek-brains are wired differently than non-geek brains. We hyper-obsess over strange things, we remember obscure details of inconsequential events, we have little to no shame when it comes to the things we geek out over. We might be firmly opposed to going in public in just our bra and panties, but paint them gold and call it a Leia Slave-Girl Outfit and we are game. This same geek-brain, so gifted

Kari Byron – From MythBuster to Mom

mythbusters-kari-byron--475x342

In the beginning, a little nausea and napping under my desk was all I expected. When I really took a look at what I do on a daily basis, however, I realized being a pregnant MythBuster was going to be hard.
