So sometimes being a blogger really means you’re just an obsessive blog reader. That’s what I’ve been doing this week. Partially because I was unmotivated during this rainy week and partially because the blogosphere was alive with passionate posts about parenting.
This piece sums up how I feel about parenting in light of all the hullabaloo out there in the past weeks – do what is right for your family.
And this post by Rachel Held Evans is a great answer to the ridiculous question of being enough.
I really didn’t think I had anything to add, but then I did, and it came in a burst, as most of my writing does. Garreth came home and I said, “I really meant to start dinner or at least clean up the kitchen so you could start it, but I was struck with a post.” That’s what it looks like behind the scenes and fortunately, he gets it.
And a good laugh to start your weekend: Aidan was driving around at school when I went to pick him up yesterday. As soon as he saw me, he started driving in the opposite direction (ooooh, great turning skills and communicating). I don’t think I like this independent mobility thing after all.
