All any one of you has to do for me today is click on 3,000 of my Babble posts and they will think I'm a hero. It would be like the Miracle Bowl of mediocre mom blogging.
I hate how these link round ups always start with a desperate plea from me to you to read my stuff. More than anything, though, I've learned that's what it means to be a writer.
Just be glad you don't know me even better. Instead of asking you to click on links I'd be all, "ADOPT THIS DOG," or, "COME TO MY BLUE AND GOLD BANQUET," or "MAKE ME A HOGWARTS CREST FOR THE BACK OF MY CAR FOR THE TRUNK OR TREAT THIS YEAR," (Hat tip, Lisa Valentine Clark.)

Vintage Caldecotts I could look at the cover art of children's books all day. But if I did that, how would the peanut M&Ms get eaten?

You Don't Need Antibiotics for That Ear Infection (Probably) New guidelines for pediatricians so they don't prescribe antibiotics as often and create a super-tolerant strain of disease.
And that's all she wrote. Coming next week: More!
