Oh geeze. How do these daily bloggers do it? I'm so sick of myself after two weeks of writing every day for Babble I can barely stand it. But that doesn't mean I'm not cranking out high quality stuff over there! And it is fun.
Here's the Monday Playlist I made. You can listen to it anytime. It's free. I made the playlist before MCA died. I was so happy the spirit told me to include The Beastie Boys on it so it could serve as an ad hoc tribute and when I say lower-case-s-"spirit" I always mean, of course, the spirit of hip hop.
I also posted some timely observations about the high stakes of end-of-year testing while reminiscing about Communist China. Mr. Gorbachev, take down this wall! When and where was that, again? Whatever.
On Tuesday I posted something I've been wanting to do for a while. It's Your Mom's Pinterest Board.
I wrote 10 Things I Hate About Raising You and speculated further on Adult Swaddling.
The Babble authors have a system so we don't all write about the same thing every day--especially when something newsworthy happens. It's called "Dibs." You just send out a quick email and say, "dibs" about whatever you plan to blog about. These embarrass me because it's like, "ADULT SWADDLING! DIBS--seriously guys, please no one else write about this! I call Adult Swaddling." I hope I get used to it.
Today I wrote a post about the thruthiness of Mother's Day hype. SPOILER: It's not a picture of me nursing my three year old on the cover of Time magazine.
If you are wondering if you are mom enough to read it, let me reassure you: You are.
