I'm doing a internet-wide DITL on my blog, and I'm wondering if any of you would know how to categorize it to get the word out... It's not a contest, it's not a giveaway.  It's not quite a…Continue

Feminism - You're Doing it Wrong

Posted on April 4, 2011 at 10:31am 1 Comment

"The reality is that women are treated differently by society for exactly the same reason that children and the mentally handicapped are treated differently. It’s just easier this way for everyone. You don’t argue with a four-year old about why he shouldn’t eat candy for dinner. You don’t punch a mentally handicapped guy even if he punches you first. And you don’t argue when a women tells you she’s only making 80 cents to your dollar. It’s the path of least resistance.…

Child Modeling. Should you do it?

Posted on February 24, 2011 at 10:52am 0 Comments

Last night, my husband and I caught about three minutes of the show "Toddlers and Tiaras."  There was a pretty little girl in a lot of make up, smiling and standing before a crowd, her mother proudly looking on with tears in her eyes.



"When I'm in my make up," the little girl said, "I feel pretty."



And she looked pretty.  I certainly wasn't scandalized.  It looked like any other mother / daughter activity to me.



The next shot was a teaser for the next segment, in…

As a former television news producer, this clip of Kermit the Frog, reporter, never fails to crack me up. In it, he is at the scene of breaking news - an ongoing, live accident scene. Humpty Dumpty has fallen off the wall.



The kids love it because it's a nursery rhyme they know mixed in with with intense imagery, so that they are both familar with…

Darlena,

 

It's so good to hear from you. To be honest you hit it right on the money. It's rough working that shift...but it does free up my afternoons and evenings to spend with my kids. I'd love to be a full time mom...but that's just not in the cards for me right now.

 

I did do the site myself. I wanted to provide news to other parents, but then Meijer, which is a major grocery chain in our area, decided to sponsor things on my blog as well. So it's kind of all intregrated with my other job too.  Your recent blog post is so right. If you work at it...you can get something in return.  I wish you the best and I look forward to hearing from you again. Take Care!
