You know that rare but amazing feeling when you meet someone and just click? You may not share the same opinions but what you have in common is open-eyed curiosity, a sense of humor others don’t always get, and absorbingly passionate interests. You realize: This is an epic friendship in the making.
That is what you find here at GeekMom.
Every day we head in all sorts of unexpectedly fascinating directions.
We write (not always in nice inside voices) about the media, including cliched portrayals of working mothers, a lack of strong female characters in superhero comics, and the need for more of Dana Scully-like characters.
We share plenty of parenting inspiration. For example Kari Byron (yes, of MythBusters fame) discusses how to get your kids interested in science. And every day we write about parenting topics like raising introverts, getting kids to do laundry, living with cooking geeks, and deciding to buy your kid a smartphone.
Sometimes we write about throwing awesome parties for our kids, like an Angry Birds themed birthday or a pre-school pirate party. Sometimes it’s just about the cake. You know, zombie cake or Hello Kitty cupcakes.
Oh there’s so much more. You’ll find out. Meet up with us tomorrow and the next day and the next. GeekMom. We’re pretty epic.
