We had a sick day at our house, which makes me obsess about babies and the germs.

Exploring hygiene and haiku and opera, here are today's baby links I love:


They're taking babies to the opera in the UK. The author of this piece for the Times Online asks if this is just another way to empty your wallet as you strive for Alpha-Mum status.

As my son heads to the doctor, the MakeShift Revolution's ode to croup, in the form of a haiku, is stuck in my head.
