It’s another edition of the Biz e-Friday Countdown. So grab a drink, sit back and relax. We’ve read all the best parenting blogs this week and are recapping the highlights for you. Because we know you are busy!
5. Girls Gone Child
Rebecca Wolfe is having twins and we are all excited to go through the journey with her. Get your first glimpse of life through her womb in “Twinversation.”
4. The Meanest Mom
What would April Fool’s Day be if you couldn’t play practical jokes on your kids. One mean mom writes about her April Fool.
Breastfeeding has been in the news lately (maybe it’s something in the water?). Scientists, studies of the workplace and other revered sources are all making their opinions know. Does the research showing women pay a workplace price for nursing ring true to you? Does confirmation that nursing is linked to brain development make any difference in whether and how long you nurse? Is it anyone’s business if you breastfeed while drunk? You decide.
2. Babble’s Stroller Derby (by John Cave Osborne )
The post “Perspectives of a Gay Grandma” is inspired by a piece written by Sandy Boucher, a grandmother of four who sees that through her grandchildren, she can have a hand in developing children into a generation that is loved, nurtured and cared for in a way she’d never known.
April Fools! Our #1 Biz e-Friday blog winner isn’t from a mommy blog at all. But, it is a post that showcases quite possibly the DUMBEST April Fool’s joke of all played by a mother on her son. Hint: The joke lands him in jail. Who wouldn’t see that as pure hilarity? Written by legal scholar, Jonathon Hurley.
Enjoy this first “fool’s day” of April and the weekend to come. Sleep until the kids wake you up!
