Oh, THAT Mez! A Day In The Life Of A Breastfeeding Toddler


From my finance days, I remember this great story about a guy who'd ride his recumbent bicycle to Stanford every day along Sand Hill Road, where all the VC firms had their offices. When he went to interview at one firm, the partner freaks out and calls all his colleagues in and goes, "THIS is the guy on that crazy bike!" Turns out he'd been the topic of conversation around the corporate pho bar for quite a while.


And so it is that Mez will probably never have to worry too much about explaining which Mez he is


Because after Mez was born, his dad Jason Rohrer took a break from imagining his future as an innovative video game artist and helped his mom Lauren Serafin make a photo boardbook that addresses the woeful lack of depictions of breastfeeding in contemporary children's literature.


And so in the unlikely event someone doesn't recognize him immediately, Mez will easily be able to say he's the Mez from the Creative Commons-licensed, breastfeeding-, attachment parenting-, slingwearing-, elimination communication-, sustainable locavore-, open software- and eco-friendly children's classic of the voluntary simplicity movement, Saturday With Mez.

I just ordered two copies.

And at that bakery they will probably always remember that colleague with the awesome name.

This is a lovely black & white board book that follows a breastfeeding toddler through the day. I wish this book had been available when my children were babies and toddlers!
