Eye color and more

I saw an article about eye color pop up on my FB newsfeed and it led me to this: Anyone else have mutations? The eye mutations are big here in my family.My son's eyes were a strange color as an infant. They blue but practically clear...barely any pigment. A friend said they looked like marbles because the blue was like a ribbon inside a clear iris. Eventually the blue came in darker, but with some yellow mixed in where the clear spots were. They are blue and yellow at times, but they usually…See More

Jmarr replied to Shawn Spivey's discussion Cheerful? Depressed? The Season in Which You Were Born Might Hold The Key
"Very interesting! I don't know that I would plan a birth around it, but it certainly makes sense. If two people with a lot of depression (or lymphoma) in their families were to plan a pregnancy they might want to consider this study first."

"Maybe you can talk to her teacher about the C and D grade. Find out if there is anything you can do at home to help her in those areas. Find out exactly what she is expected to know and how she is tested on it. I would think it would be a bit unfair…"

I live clear in LW. Meeting up would probably be hard. I have a pattern for infant and size 1 cloth diapers and I'm gonna try that. I have a bunch of bigger ones. Thanks, Jennifer!
