Share The Love Sunday (8 Things That Knocked My Socks Off))

 

It’s Sunday afternoon and what are you all doing? You are strolling around on the Internet looking for a few good reads, am I right? I find myself doing that occasionally. Especially if it is raining, which it seems to be doing every single afternoon here. I prayed for rain, but I didn’t expect this!

I thought I would share with you some of the things I read this week. That’s why I’m calling it “Share The Love Sunday.” I hope you enjoy these as much as I did!

(Sweet Stuff)

1. Xiomara wrote about her Abuela’s (Grandmother’s) stroke in What Comes After A Stroke? {PYHO}. She writes about convincing her Abuela to go to the the hospital and her Abuela refusing to go. The relationship she and her son have with her Abuela is so touching. I dare you to read it and not shed a tear. It’s a beauty.

2. Motherhood, WTF wrote about her son going off to Kindergarten in What I Wish He Knew (page has moved or been removed).  She lists all of the things we wish our kids could know (and what we wish we knew) before starting school. Not to worry about peer pressure, being popular (or not) and how all of this won’t matter that much in the big scheme of things. It’s lovely.

3. The Momalog wrote, 50 Things I Want To Teach My Daughters, and it is a terrific list. Anyone with daughters will appreciate it.

(Silly)

1. Let Me Start By Saying… made a hilarious magazine cover for “real moms” here: If I Had My Own Magazine? I’d Be The Cover Girl

2. Ever have trouble with spandex jeans? You’ve got to read this one by We Band Of Mothers: Where Have All The Good Jeans Gone?

3. Mayor Gia wrote about her thwarted invention of the Onion Goggles. I have a soft spot for blogs with funny pictures, what can I say?

(Serious)

1. Imagine You Were Raped. Got Pregnant. Then Your Rapist Sought Custody. This was written by Dana Liebelson and Sydney Brownstone for Mother Jones. It’s thought provoking.

2. Alice Park wrote: Older Fathers Linked to Kids’ Autism and Schizophrenia Risk (for Time). This is relavant to me and many other people who waited until later in life to start having children.

Enjoy your Sunday. Read something truly remarkable that I missed? Let me know about it in the comment section.
