Yes, I too am jumping on the “Ditch the blogroll and just share posts we loved” bandwagon. I see this as a good change, so I’m all for doing what the cool kids are doing this time around.
That said I’m always looking for new and interesting people to add to my own reading list, so if you are lurking and want me to swing by, just drop me a comment!
As an homage to Stop Cyber-Bullying Day, Chris at Notes From the Trenches came up with the fabulous idea of a celebratory post with your favorite links of the week. Absolutely Bananas was kind enough to spread the word, and I ask everyone who reads this to do the same.
First off, I can’t do something like this without mentioning Plain Jane Mom since she does this every single day with her “Go Read It” posts. Seriously, she’s the Katie Couric of the internet world, and we love her for it.
I literally laughed out loud reading Temporarily Me’s tip on How to Get Out of Having Sex. I seriously may have to try this one.
I swear Sarah(and the Goon Squad) is raising my oldest, this is something I KNOW she would come out with.
Mama Loves posts the Best. Real Moms. Evah.
This Ain’t New York, a southern girl after my own heart, does a review of her own blog as if it were on American Idol. Hilarious!
Now, lets hope those links actually worked!
The kids always go play outside when my oldest gets home, it’s what they like to do best in the afternoons. I usually use this time to straighten the living room and start making dinner. Its a nice bit of peace when they actually cooperate.
Today we decided to spice it up a bit. I saw the 2 and 3 year olds crouching down in a patch of clover, and figured they were picking some to bring me. They love to bring me ‘flowers’ as the decomposing remains all over my kitchen counters will attest to. The hubby had called and I was talking to him when all of a sudden Gabrielle runs in saying “Mommy, Mommy! Damian!!” I didn’t hear any crying so I figured he’d stepped in dog poop or something, it happens from time to time with 2 furry monsters living here. He comes up to me looking concerned but with not so much as a single tear, and shows me his hand, with a bee stinger planted deep in one finger near the palm.
How did this happen?? He grabbed the bee and wanted to hold it.
I need to have a talk with him about the differences between lizards and bees.
