We did the county fair last night with four kids and no stroller and no sling. It actually went ok! The games and ride attendants were super nice, the kids were happy, and no one got lost or sick, and we still came home with money in our pockets. I even bumped into a friend who had just read my post about saying Yes, and I tried to explain how that doesn't mean I always say Yes now but am more mindful of when I say No (as Gray was eating a funnel cake for dinner) (he only took three bites!) (why does that even matter?)
We have another super busy weekend coming up, but I'm glad it's all family togetherness type stuff. So my favorite part of summer. In the meantime... I'm rounding out my first month writing at Strollerderby and I really do love it. I'm ever so thankful when you read, comment, share, retweet etc. I won't lie, it makes me look good. Also, I think the posts are fun and thought provoking, like:
- What has someone said to you? They Said WHAT?! Most Appalling Things People Say To New Moms
- (Guilty or not?) Step Away From The Camera: Are Moms Obsessed With Capturing "The Moment" Actually Missing the Moment?
- Just for fun- do you like these famous fictional moms? 5 TV Moms Who Inspire Me To Be A Better Mother and 5 Who Do NOT
Also, I'm thinking about bringing back the old timey blogroll of yesteryears, but I might change it up a bit. I was inspired by a recent email conversation with sweet Bridget of The Ivey League. Hopefully starting Sunday I will feature five blogs in my top left sidebar that I find through my comments and I'll freshen it up each week. I'm really excited about this.
P.S. I'm always looking for story ideas, input, and news tips- follow me on Twitter or email me anytime!
