    Blog it Forward… Six Degrees?

    In honor of the Blog It Forward phenomenon, which I think is great, and with a nod to the notion of “Six Degrees of Separation,” I’ve decided to start stretching my blog-view a bit.  Not sure what to call it… maybe “Blog it Forward Six Degrees.”   Anyway, I’m going to choose a blog from my blogroll, then choose one from their blogroll and onwards til I hit the 6th degree blog.  I’ll then share a bit about what I found there.  This could be fun, could be scary, but it will definitely be interesting… Off I go!  Oh, and if you have a suggestion for another name, let me know!

    There are moments when your little darling, your bundle of joy, the reason you have for getting up every morning (lest they scream bloody murder) makes you want to jump off a tall, preferably rocky, cliff. We’re having more and more of those moments in our house. The fact is that we left for Utah with a cute and happy baby, and returned with… well… a toddler who doesn’t toddle. He’s still cute, and occasionally happy, but now he pinches, and hits, and throws things in anger.

    WAHMs Unite!

    Today I’m angry. I’m not going to go into what exactly has pushed me over the edge, but I will address the bigger issue. Why do companies think that it’s ok to pay women next to nothing just because they’re working from home? And why do we put up with it? It’s offensive to me how little some companies pay for what results in a lot of work. If I’m doing the same work I would be doing in an office, I expect to be compensated at the same level. Over and over again, I see women undercharge for their products, their services, and their time. They think they’re being…

    Where IS my oxygen mask, anyway?!

    Karen over at Troll Baby wrote a great post a few days back about the importance of being Selfish. I want to send an MTM shout-out to her by way of thanks. I am a firm believe that becoming a parent (and specifically a mom) does not mean sublimating your every desire for the needs of your children. Sure, they need to be fed, clothed, housed, and LOVED. But they also need to see healthy parents leading healthy and fulfilled lives. Karen mentions this in her blog, but it’s been my personal motto since becoming a MOM – When you fly, the flight attendants always instruct you, “In the case…
