Hey, it’s Friday, and I’ve got work nonsense coming out of my ears, so…how about some other great reads?
First, this pair of posts over at Ask Moxie, Free but not cheap and More on Free but not cheap came on the heels of several different discussions I was having off and online about whether motherhood should be called/is a job. These posts take that idea on, in a really thoughtful way.
I love this post over at Reading (and chickens): Nineteen. Though it is technically a letter from the Shalini of today to the nineteen year old Shalini, I see a lot of good points for all of us to learn from.
This post over at All & Sundry broke my heart: It all vanishes. I don’t get super weepy about my kid growing up that often, but this post about that exact subject had me sobbing. Beautifully written, and a fabulous reminder to not rush our kids through childhood.
And now, to lighten the mood, two more fun posts.
Over at Reading (and chickens): How to Solve an Internet Fight. Yup, pretty much this.
And finally, for those of us who have trains coming out of our ears, over at What She Said: The Official Thomas and Friends Drinking Game. Though I would warn that you are probably gonna get sloshed REALLY quick with these rules.
Have you read anything awesome lately? Share share!
