What are you up to this weekend? Alex and I try to take a short trip every year by ourselves (no kids allowed!), so this weekend we are at the Jamaica Inn. It’s so lovely here, and it’s nice to have a moment to talk without two little boys climbing all over us;) Hope you have a good one, and here are a few fun links from around the web…

Wow, what an incredible Halloween costume!

How cute is this secret society of letter writers?

Wise words: “You never ever have to inspire anyone to meet you on the bridge.”

Myself hanging out with myself made me smile.

Love this. Thank you, Alamo.

What beautiful photos of a mother and child.

Found! A comfy work dress.

These magazine covers are so ingenious.

And three of the many important pieces on Harvey Weinstein and sexual harassment:

Yes, this is a witch hunt. I’m a witch and I’m hunting you.”

Things that are Hilary Clinton’s fault, starting with Harvey Weinstein.”

Jodi Kantor on how she broke the Weinstein story.

Also, for comic relief: The Rock Test: A hack for men who don’t want to be accused of sexual harassment.

Plus, two reader comments:

Says Kate on a parenting question: “We had a few miscarriages after our first child. And I desperately wanted to tell my sweet daughter. She could see that I was sad. She could tell that something was happening (even as a three-year-old). And, most notably, she noticed a distance between the two of us. That I was holding back. When I got pregnant with her sister, I finally sat her down on the bed and said, ‘Mom has been sad lately. We want to give you a brother or sister but the babies keep going away. But now Mommy has a baby in her belly. Let’s say a prayer that it’s healthy.’ She put both her little hands on the side of my cheeks and said, ‘I can’t take care of you if you don’t tell me.’ Sometimes she still mentions the brothers and sisters that ‘left us’ but she also appreciates her sister all the more for being our survivor.”

Says Gayle on a parenting question: “My son, at 3, explained to me that you got babies at the grocery store because he always saw them in the carts!”
