    Self promoting link. Also be forewarned: it's basically a research paper on porches. I think it's interesting, but it may not be your thing.

    I've been reading Emily's blog for awhile now and her news had me in tears several times this weekend. Please lift her up.

    I really appreciated this post. It was like it was meant for me. I think, truthfully, in part, it kind of was ;)

    "My every day is an ordinary collection of rinse and repeats that every mother knows by heart." I want to find significance in the routine.

    So much truth here.

    This post is a good reminder of what I want to do- raise my voice less, get down on her level more, and be consistently engaging her in dialogue about both positive and negative behavior.

    I've linked to every post in this series because I think it's so great. This one is no exception.

    I know that sometimes people take books that really aren't that bad and read them the wrong way. In this case, though, I think MUCH of what the Pearls teach is dangerous and scary. I haven't read the full book, but it makes me sad that it seems to motivate some families to such an extreme form of parenting

    We have a little thing kind of like this that looks like a frog. It only has three "shelves", but I might start using it this way!

    Interesting satirical post. I linked to the explanation directly below.

    This is heartbreaking.
