I hope you’ve had a relaxing and restful weekend! I took a couple days off from making any resolutions, mini- or otherwise, and mostly just hung out yesterday and so far today. Which meant I got to read some great stuff:
- Climbing the walls? Over at 4 Kids or More, Molly offers up some great ideas for fighting cabin fever (ooh boy, winter’s finally really here, and I could use them!)
- Through the eyes of kids...Loved Sassafrass Jessica’s story about her son’s ability to find love…down on the floor.
- It’s that time of year again...the amazing Listen to Your Mother show is coming to 10 cities nationwide this spring, and many of the productions are setting up auditions. I’m hoping there will be a place for me in the Northwest Indiana production this year, but after the smashing success of last year’s production I’m guessing the competition will be even stiffer this year. If you’re a writer who has something to say about motherhood, consider auditioning!
- Where else I’ve been...check out my latest posts at Babble Voices: why I love the word “homemaker” and 5 ways to keep your mom mojo high.
- WAHM vs WOHM vs SAHM? Ugh…Did you hear about the “debate” on the Anderson Cooper show about whether at-home or working moms are happier? Several Babble bloggers tackled the topic, including:
- Pundit Mom Joanne Bamberger takes Cooper to task for playing moms against one another for ratings,
- I argue that the “mommy wars” come from a deep need to do motherhood “right”. It just takes a while to realize there’s no such thing as one right way.
- Liz from Mom-101 says “Outrage is good for ratings.”
Have you read anything great lately?
