I’m linking you to myself

I’m linking you to myself

Did you know that I have a blog about things other than my kid?

I do.

And recently I wrote about stepping on a screw (ow!) and asking for some help figuring out 150 servings of dessert for my sister-in-law’s wedding.

Why don’t you head on over, read it, and give me some advice?

Kisses!

Does anyone live in Juneau County (especially in/near Mauston), WI? Or know anyone who does? I’m wondering if someone could do me a super huge favor involving picking up and overnighting paperwork. I would, of course, totally reimburse any fees.

Help Me

Help Me

I was invited to write for technorati about some baby/parenting stuff, and immediately got a serious case of stage fright and am drawing an almost complete blank about what to write. I want to do more factual/less personal stuff, preferably 3 columns a week. Help me come up with topics?

What I’ve got so far:

Chicago Public Schools:

  1. Types of Schools (neighborhood schools, magnet schools, gifted regional centers, etc)
  2. Why you’d want to get into a school other than your neighborhood school
  3. How to get into schools other than your neighborhood school

Vaccines:

  1. Refutations of common anti-vaccine myths
  2. Some of the diseases vaccines prevent, and their legacies
  3. Reasons why I vaccinate

Childhood Asthma:

  1. What is asthma in general/different types of asthma
  2. Asthma myths
  3. How to treat asthma

Any other suggestions? Please fire away!

Make Monday & Carnival of Love

Make Monday & Carnival of Love

This post, which has two parts, is totally inspired by Suzanne of Bebehblog.

The first part is that sometimes she blogs about stuff she cooks/bakes, including recipes and photos. I’ve been talking with friends of mine literally for years about doing this, and now I’ve taken the plunge and started a thing. You can check out A Kitchen In Ruins, which so far features recipes for Split Pea Soup, Blueberry Muffins, and English Muffin Bread. She also posts photos and instructions for craft stuff sometimes (head bands, tutus, felt flowers) that are awesome. So I’m going to try to start posting every Monday about stuff I’ve made.

The other part is that she mentioned on Twitter a few days ago that parent bloggers aren’t as welcoming and supportive as they could be. This is true! And I can think of a number of reasons for that, especially when compared to craft bloggers (which she mentioned as well). So, let’s change that. Starting next week, I’m going to post an entry a day about a different parent blogger who has positively affected my mood, my parenting, my attitude, my blogging, or my level of knowledge about something. Why don’t you join me in this? Even if you can only dedicate one entry, let’s spread the love for each other. Let’s have a carnival of love. I’m going to figure out how to easily collect links to blogs taking part in the love carnival and we can have a big old love carnival party. How’s that sound?

And, unrelated to everything else mentioned, does anyone have experience with toddlers, albuterol, and spacer masks? If so, give me advice on using them please.

I’m making a push to become a bit more well known and well read as a parenting blogger. Part of that is joining ranking/voting sites in hopes of getting some exposure. Please click the links behind the fold, and also if you think it worthwhile, recommend posts of mine to friends, digg them, add them to del.i.cious, etc.

Blogroll Updates

Blogroll Updates

Hey, all. I updated my blogroll. It’s all the parenting/kid blogs I read that aren’t Live Journal type blogs. If you write a blog, drop a link in comments here so I can check it out! Sometimes reading what other parents are going through is the only thing keeping me from jumping out the window to escape.
