Parenting Poop: What Big Apple moms and dads are buzzing about

  • Kindergartners head to the altaranna-bell-anna-lena-and-m-001
Cute overload alert! Two German tots, six-year-old Mike and five-year-old Anna-Bell, 5, took off in the wee hours of the morning and headed straight to Africa to, ahem, get married. Apparently, their parents were still snoozing when the kiddies fled, getting as far as the tram that would take them to the train station. Maybe all boys aren't commitment-phobic after all.
  • Gardasil for guys?
Pharmaceutical company Merck has just filed for FDA approval for the use of Gardasil by boys as young as nine. As men are the primary carriers and transmitters of the HPV virus, this may not be too bad of an idea. Parents, would you vaccinate your little dude?
  • Home-schooling rises in NYC
According to the Times , there was a 32% increase in home-schooling in the Big Apple from 2003 to 2007, and a 36% increase nationwide. With the downward-spiraling economy and the ever-increasing private school tuitions, these numbers are likely to continue to rise.
  • Green goods for your little goober—delivered
Eager to go green? Love gourmet eats? Lazy as a sloth? Fret not— GustOrganics has every base covered. The Greenwich Village restaurant has whipped up some meals for little ones so delish-sounding, we adults would nosh on them (macaroni with spinach and Parmesan cream, baked squash). All meals are prepared using organic ingredients, and are offered for dine-in as well.
