Was it just me, or did Friday take a really long time to get here? Janie and her friends were in the school talent show last night, which lasted late into the evening… Pretty sure there will be some sleepy kids in the ‘hood (and some sleepy parents!) today. We took it slow this morning too and it’s terribly stormy in Seattle today. Honestly, I don’t mind a bit — a cozy weekend at home sounds perfect to me right now! Maybe I’ll even get all of that laundry folded and put away? Well, let’s not get ahead of ourselves…
Here’s what I was up to this week. Tell me what you’ve been working on…
one. Raising girls: “They told me Legos were just for boys” (It’s amazing how becoming a mother to girls makes you suddenly find your inner-feminist.)
two. Get your mama workout on… inside your house (I count all of those trips up and down our basement stairs to change the laundry working out. At 30 loads a day, it adds up!)
three. 8 Moms we can’t wait to see on the Grammy red carpet (Still in denial that Kim and Kanye were a no-show. Didn’t they know I put them in my article?)
four. What moms really want for Valentine’s Day (This one is hilarious and I loved all of the answers that moms, who are fellow-writers and friends of mine, gave. My favorite answer? Dawn’s. You’ll see why.)
five. 8 Hidden parks for kids in Seattle’s Queen Anne neighborhood (This is an older article that they re-ran this week… on the new Red Tricycle website. Isn’t it pretty?)
Thanks for clicking through to these and reading, liking, kissing, whatevering these articles. My editors like it and so do I.
TGIF everyone. xo.
