Okay, this isn’t part of the Real Moms meme. This is the fallout from the meme. I fell into the mommy blogs hole. Wow. There are tons of moms out there writing about really good and important stuff. It humbled me. But here’s one, if you haven’t heard of it yet: MomsRising. There, I was able to sign a petition to urge the networks to stop the myth of the mommy wars (the tired old lie about how there is a rift between moms who work “outside the home” and those who do), and learned about other momactivism, and am wishing I’d been able to afford montessori for my girls when they were little. It’s great community out there.
And, just like in the UU world, the momblog world hosts a wide range of opinions about just about everything. And, just like UUblogworld, mommyblogging is taking up WAY TOO MUCH of my time. Not that I’m complaining.
