Moments in Parenting

Some days, it's like this.
Some days, it's like this.



One of the reasons I love the blogiverse is because there are so many clever, funny women (and men, too, but this post is not about men) who illuminate moments in parenting in clever, funny ways.

Here are a few awesome examples:

1. Suburban Matron describes her flash of inspiration on the unique opportunity afforded by grilled cheese sandwiches. (Viewer discretion advised: bread heels figure prominently in this post.)

2. Bad Mom tells the tale of a fun invitation which turned into an ethical dilemma which resulted in (SPOILER ALERT!) a very teachable moment, nurturing and love demonstration.

3. A Tired Wife is my newest find. She has some lovely photos of her lovely daughter, some hilarious observations about her husband, and some political views that warm the cockles of my heart.

Parenthood ain't for sissies. In honour of these sisters and others like them, I offer this clip.

I love the contrast between those two pictures of motherhood. I will confess that I haven't looked at your links (but I will tomorrow; promise!) but that's because I've just made dinner and cleaned up and helped with French homework and piano practice and read two chapters . . . and now I need to go to bed!

Oh my dearie! Thank you for linking me! And thanks for recommending the other two. I still love Parenthood. I confess I get all teary at the end. So many great moments.

Wonderful pictures! And thank you for the links ... they look intriguing. Bread heels? (lol)

I'm so touched!!! You know I'm liking you a lot too! And I don't believe anyone's ever told me that I warm the cockles of their heart!

One of my fave movies about ... well ... parenthood.

Is it wrong that I enjoy warming your cockles? heh. Thank you for the link - I just wrote about you, too! Mind meld.

And? Pretty sure I never, ever resemble the angelic mom in my mothering.
