I haven't done one of these round-up posts in a while, but in my few free minutes to "surf" my blog-reader the last two weeks, I've seen some good stuff out there.
Here are a few of the "gems" worth checking out if you (like me) love a good reason to avoid housework and productivity on the weekends:
*in no particular order*
"The Talk" at Momastery (Glennon doesn't post that much anymore, but pretty much every time she does it is GOOD.) This is a letter to her son at the beginning of the school year about loving people - especially the ones in his class that no one else pays attention to. I'm probably going to change the names up a bit and give it to Sam in a few years when he goes to school and can read. Don't worry, she said that's ok to do.
"The Night Before Kindergarten" at Enjoying the Small Things. Kelle is another one of those bloggers that amazes me with her ability to make every post amazing. This one is so good... Even made me a little teary about five years from now when Sam will start school. Crazy.
"The Hard Facts: Friendly Kids Make Happy Adults" at MWF Seeking BFF. This is a blog I just found recently, and I love her style and voice. I also loved this post. It's subject - socializing your kids - has been on my mind a lot lately; but she was able to write about it light-hearted enough that it didn't stress me out. It made me thankful for my very happy boy --- even if he still isn't walking or talking! ;)
and, "Mommy Truth, Why I Really Invite You Over from Baby Rabies". - Another repeat offender on this list. Love her. And, while you're at it, read this post too. This list needed a little funny, don't you think?
