Moms Speak Up

Thinking about Sarah Palin today and the fuss about her daughter. Apparently it is heating up the long simmering “mommy wars” again, much to the delight of the media, but what does being an elected official have to do with parenting? Isn’t there a divide between career and family that shouldn’t be crossed when deciding what is important – really important – about the future POTUS and his/her running mate?

Check out my article and let me know what you think.

I am feeling prolific this week. I have a new piece up on the debilitating capacity of flip flops that I would love for as many of you as possible to check out and leave a comment, if you would be so kind. 

We are still the feature blog at Todays Mama, so any traffic that flows to either site is good for the writer in me. I really appreciate those of you who are reading my work here and there.

Could you get by with just 100 items to your name? Manage with half a closet of clothing? Declare your CD or DVD collection frivolous excess and put it up for bid on eBay? Eat with a spork?

No? Well, check out my lastest article and links on Moms Speak Up for the rest of the story because there are people doing just that, purging themselves of the materialistic trappings of our uber-consuming life-styles. Turing over a non-shopping leaf. Pulling away from the table of the American way of life.


If you have a moment readers, check out Todays Mama where Moms Speak Up (another blog I contribute to) is the featured blog.

I also have a new piece up over there as well on daycare providers who terminate service to parents who run errands or go to appointments when they “should be working”. Let the judgmental attitudes toward working mothers continue, eh?
