SlackerMommy has an awesome post and about debratting your kids and how the fine line between being your child’s parent and friend has become blurred. Hence, 13-year-olds have a busier social calendar than their parents, no kids hold steady part-time jobs any more, and parents are forking over $300 for Hannah Montana tickets and afternoon mani/pedi treatments for girls who don’t even have their driver’s licenses. The hubby and I have already talked about how we want our girls to help pay for their own vehicles some day. Let’s hope we stick to our parenting guns! We both worked when we were teenagers (I blogged about my humbling fast food experience at Wendy’s where I was a hot mess in polyster navy blue pants.) The hubby bagged groceries at Piggly Wiggly, delivered Domino’s pizza, and was the cute lifeguard at our small town country club.
This iced chai recipe on How about orange… sounds delicious.
I posted over at the Colorado Grand Junction this week about two studies that looked at the negative effects of TV and so-called educational DVDs for babies. I also admit that Dora is practically family as she babysits the girls almost every weekday morning. Muchas gracias Dora!
White Trash Mom has an awesome Not Ready for Mom Jeans list on This Next. I so need this Mother on the Edge t-shirt. My wardrobe has morphed into a sea of indistinguishable khaki and dear Lord I actually wore soccer earrings to Miss C’s game this morning. But we won the game, so I consider them my lucky soccer mom earrings now.
And to think, I’d forgotten all about Rick Astley.
Two out of four members of the Blonde Mom Blog household have colds, not including me, so I’m bathing in hand sanitizer and downing Gatorade.
Have a great weekend!
