Does anyone here read Brain, Child? I got a subscription as a gift from my best friend when I was pregnant with ds and have been getting it ever since. I LOVE it!

No I have never heard of it even. Can you tell us about it? What do you love so much about it?

Since I'm a reader, not a writer, I'm sure I'd write a terrible description -- so here's how it's described on the magazine website:

Brain, Child: The Magazine for Thinking Mothers.

Brain, Child is a quarterly print publication that reflects modern motherhood-the way it really is. It's been called "The New Yorker for cheeky mothers" and "a literary time-out for moms." We like to think of Brain, Child as a community, for and by mothers who like to think about what raising kids does for (and to) the mind and soul.

Brain, Child isn't your typical parenting magazine. We couldn't cupcake-decorate our way out of a paper bag. We leave the tips and professional experts to the traditional publications. What we do offer are words from women in the field: mothers (who also happen to be great writers) like Barbara Kingsolver, Jane Smiley, Alice Hoffman, and Susan Cheever. Each issue is full of essays, features, humor, reviews, fiction, art, cartoons, and our readers' own stories.[/b]
I think what I love most is just reading about other mothers' experiences. There was one essay called "Weaning Lacula" that made me laugh so hard. I sometimes re-read it when I'm feeling like Alden is going to nurse forever.

The only bad thing is that it only comes out four times a year!
