[box]Welcome to Sunday Surf! My favorite reads from around the blogosphere this past week. You can always see what I’m reading on my homepage (middle column below Popular Posts) or you can follow my Google Reader Page!
Authentic Parenting and Hobo Mama are now hosting Sunday Surf. Share your best reading of the week, and link up your post at either blog!
- For MLK day Lauren at Hobomama addresses Talking about race with (white) kids. It is an excellent post and I’m sure it was hard to write (as I’ve drafted my own a few times but was afraid to publish) because white people often feel they have no right to talk about race. Lauren argues it is important to talk about it – especially with the kids!
- Since I recently did my own “shit people say” meme called “Sh*t Fat Phobic People Say” Racilicious has a great list of some of the videos and what they say about our culture in Exploring the Problematic and Subversive Shit People Say [Meme-ology]
- Another great MLK post was MontessoriNow’s list of Montessori-Inspired Peace Education Activities. Great for homeschooling families as well.
- Good Googs talks about 10 Things People Say Before They Are Parents. They are funny in that “oh, I said that” way but also important because they perpetuate discrimination against kids (“just leave them home, or at least keep them quiet!”.
- For My Friends with Weaning Regret via Dulce de leche couldn’t have come at a better time after my own post about Coping with Breastfeeding Loss. If you are struggling with weaning read her post.
- My Current Thoughts on the Baby Carriers in My Stash is a great breakdown of one mother’s impressive baby carrier collection. It is nice to see a side by side comparison for both infant, toddler, and tandem use.
And don’t forget to submit your favorite post from 2011!
The Best of Me
The only rules are:
- The post was written by you
- It was previously published in 2011
- Any topic – it doesn’t have to be parenting related! (I do reserve the right to not include a post that is grossly in direct opposition to natural parenting).
That’s it! I’d love for you to be involved as I think this will be a great list!
