do you remember the show blossom? have you ever wondered what happened to its star, mayim bialik? as it turns out, she’s been busy getting a PhD in neuroscience and also attachment-parenting her two sons. here is an interview that i love for her candidness and down to earth approach to parenting in a gentle way. (i also get a sense of her not judging others who do it differently.) in an earlier interview, she talks about her experience being made over by “what not to wear,” which is also fun – slightly fluffier, but it’s interesting to hear her perspective on fashion as a conservative jewish woman who only wears skirts or dresses, and does not wear sleeveless tops. it’s really refreshing to me to read about a celebrity who sticks to her own convictions about modesty and making family her top priority. maybe some of you will find it refreshing, too!
