I met my husband because his mom is a leader in the field of developmental psycholinguistics, and back when I was 23 I was a grad student in the same field. The rest is a longer story I’ll tell you if you want to know it, but I bring it up tonight because we just had the giddy pleasure of seeing his mom on The National. A study she did is running in the new issue of Science this week (this is about the most important journal out there), and it’s getting a huge amount of press attention. I’m so excited for her, and for her lab and her colleagues and her students!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
