Our guest curator this week is Kate Hall, co-editor (with Science of Parenthood's Norine Dworkin-McDaniel and Jessica Ziegler) of The Bigger Book of Parenting Tweets available today on Amazon. Kate also blogs at Can I Get Another Bottle of Whine? and right here on HuffPost Parents. Read her selections below, and follow @HuffPostParents, @KateWhineHall and @BigBookofTweets on Twitter for more!
