The Breeders: Achieving key parenting milestones

Adam: What did you write your blog post about this week?

Me: Cheerios and maracas.

Adam: Oh, cool.

Yep, this is the new normal. Read about it over on the Patch.

The Breeders: First Word? Maybe?

From my new favorite blog, Parenting with Crappy Pictures.

I was an English major who maybe took too many semiotics classes. I also have a friend going to school to be a speech pathologist, so I might be over thinking the whole first word thing, but when the first word is just a shortened version of repeated babbling, its hard to tell.

I don't want to shortchange the kid, but I may also be the only mom who was also kind of hoping it would be "dada." It seems only fair considering he spends all day with him.

The Breeders: A Meaningful Mother's Day

Strong Families cards celebrate all kinds of mamas.
My masters thesis examined how women have used the socially accepted role of "mother" to work towards peace. It had a 23 page bibliography.

I refrained from using any footnotes in my recent Patch blog on the origins of Mother's Day and the many organizations using Mother's Day to call attention to maternal and infant mortality the world over.

I also talked about how I can't wait to get handmade cards and macaroni necklaces.
