I'm short on time this morning, but I wanted to post a couple of links for you to enjoy... My sister-in-law introduced me to one (thanks Katy!), which led me to find the other. I have to admit that I spent at least an hour this weekend reading backposts of Dooce.
At any rate, here they are: http://www.dooce.com/
I don't know how to make the links cute and I don't have the time to investigate right now. Anyway, the first two are blogs that are fantastic and the last is a resource to find more if you're so inclined.
Hope you enjoy - I'll post later this week about the kids...
