My subscription issue has yet to arrive but I had a chance to flip through the magazine at a grocery store today. It looks so beautiful! I just wanted to read the whole magazine right there and then! I had tears in my eyes when I saw the article about dads and books. My husband reads to our daughter every day when he is at home. It is their special bonding time. I can't wait to share the article with him. Thank you Mothering!
I think my favorite thing in issue 158 was the photo of the beautiful voluptuous mama laying down with her baby on page 52. It's the first time I can remember in a long time that I've seen a woman of more average size portrayed in the magazine, and it made me smile. I even held it up to my husband and asked him, "Do you notice anything unusual about this photo?" and he answered, "Yeah, she's normal size." Most women are more zaftig (a Yiddish word meaning pleasantly plump, full figured, juicy, succulent) after giving birth. It's nice to see it in your pages.
I enjoy research-based breastfeeding articles (like Scent of a Woman), too. The Mangos... article was great because I would love to do something like that with my kids.... maybe someday. Meanwhile I can live vicariously through the writer.

I am sooo inspired by that family who took their kids to costa rica for some volunteering and learning about organic farming. I read it to DH and now we have a similar goal/vision for our family some day!! I cannot wait to try to make some of those amazing looking soups! And the study about waiting to send your child to public school at age 6 hit the spot for me as i've been toying with the idea of holding my ds back (when the time comes) because he is only 4 days from missing the "cut off" anyway. Now I know I will wait until he turns six before I send him off to school (well, if i decide not to homeschool that is ).
The scent of a woman was amazing as well! It's so cool what our bodies can do!
I really just overall LOVED LOVED LOVED this issue! I only wish there was more! Every issue I read cover to cover many many times so quickly and always want more!!! hahah
I made the Curried Cauliflower Bisque with Garlic Sauteed Greens.... OhMylanta that was incredible... how yummy!! Definitely a "keeper."

I was laughing out loud when I read The Girl Who Wouldn't Bathe! Especially at the fact the parents started saying "I no wanna bathe!" to each other. We do the same thing at my house, so reading that we are not alone was hilarious.
overall i loves this issue also. scent of a woman was beautifully written but i liked all the veg*n friendly soups in Soupfest. i had been looking forward to them since i get a preview of the upcoming (#158) issue.
best article? news you won't get anywhere else cause i think EVERY mama, crunchy or not, should be in the know.
I think my favorite thing was that photo in the table of contents with the pretty mama nursing her baby in bed. Just lovely.
