The Phenomenon of Mommy Tears

Friday, December 07, 2012

Sitting in a room full of moms - some very new moms, others who have great insight to the journey, and many, like me, who are somewhere in between - I heard the sniffles, you know the sniffles that moms make when the tears are starting flow, but we try to keep them from falling freely? Especially in bigger groups... The music was simple, yet it was touching... and so the sniffles became a new layer of the melody.

Cozy Book Hop

Thursday, December 06, 2012

After trying to juggle Christmas preparations and advent activities with my kids I've been super busy. Then just when I was confident I had it all under control the flu bug hit my house. So I don't have a kids book to share this week with the hop...

I'm sure you will all find some great examples to include to help fill my gap.  And to get you started here are some great lists from previous link ups!  Oh and a fun giveaway!

I've really enjoyed reading all your posts every week - I can't wait to see what you all have this week.

Like usual, please link up a post (not just your blog) about a book you're reading, have recently read, loved when you read years ago, etc; or any post on teaching your kids to read, their favorites, or special holiday books you are excited to share this year.  Really anything that has to do with books and reading are fair game.

Please link back to the hop so others can join in on the fun - the button code is on the side if you want to use it.

Try to stop by another post to support our community of book lovers - who knows you might find a new friend.


Weekly Favorites #6

Tuesday, December 04, 2012

This has been one crazy week for me, but I figure it's because of the extra items on my to-do list for the Christmas season. It is amazing that I think I might be able to do squeeze more into my life for a month... Anyway, here are my top three this week!

Granted my little ones are still not in school, however it is quickly approaching. As a result I've been reading tons of different articles on schools and our kids' education in general. This article caught my attention - half because of the article and half because of the great discussion occurring in the comments.

I stumbled across this great post this week from Second Change to Dream and loved the message. Barb laid out her take on her current Bible study, and I'd say her message is worth reading for everyone.

I am a huge fan of The MOB Society, as a mommy of boys, it comes in handy to have a place to turn that is full of understanding mamas. Anyway, this week they helped me smile with this great post Confessions from B.K. I hope you laughed like I did!
