Before I get to my post today, please check this out about toy recalls and add any questions you might have to the comments. Hmmm. I feel like I'm linking to Mom-101 a lot--but she's just so very linkable!
I was talking to a friend yesterday, and although I go on and on about different parentbloggers and how funny and great they are, she just doesn't get into them. I understand that. At first, I didn't get why people blogged or would read blogs. I don't watch reality TV or talk shows or listen to call-in radio shows. I generally prefer fiction, although I do like biographies and history, perhaps because they are more indepth looks at real people than I think you get with reality TV.
But then, thanks to a friend, I discovered mommyblogs. NOW I get it. Here are other women and men who are interesting, good writers and writing about things I can relate to. My world has changed so much that I even started my own.
As I was talking to my friend, I told her I'd recommend some posts that were really good so she could see why I'm so into them. Later I realized that I want to share them with more than one friend. And since it's Link Week, I'm posting some of my favorite posts by some of my favorite bloggers. I think I'll do this every now and then, because I love discovering other bloggers through links from bloggers I read and enjoy, so I would like to pass that on to others.
Disclaimer: I'm a person who hates to leave anyone out. However, I'm super busy at work lately, so I don't have time to link to a post for everyone on my blog roll. I'm sorry about that, but I'll do more links later. Cause all these women and men are great!
These are really good:
Ask Moxie: Moxie is one of my favorite people in the world, and I love everything she's ever written. Read her post about her philosophy to understand why.
a little pregnant: I almost died from laughter at Julie's's take on mamograms!
blissfully bitch: Read this to understand what it's like when your heart walks around outside your body.
finslippy: Alice is always so funny, but read this to get an inside view into the crazy minds of women!
Her Bad Mother: This post is so good, although I like the follow-up post even better!
ImposterMom: I love that ImposterMom does haiku Fridays, and here was one that I truly can relate to.
i must admit: This one was very funny, but I lost it when I read the follow-up post! I'm still laughing at it!
Mom-101: How sweet is this? Plus, there is a picture of Thalia in a Redskins onesie!
One Tired Ema: A glipse into what it's like to drop a young kid off at school. I am not holding my breath.
Oh, my. That's probably enough for now. I'm sure I'll do more soon! Also, I'll get back to blogging about life with the baby tomorrow. Apparently I needed to talk about blogging the past two days.
