Help Name This WMB Saturday Column!

It’s almost 10:30pm.  The kids are asleep.  My husband is out playing cards.  And, I should be in bed because the baby will be up in the night to feed, I’m sooo running on empty in the sleep department, and I’ve been trying to get myself to a Saturday morning 8am yoga class for two months now. (I haven’t made it there yet!)

But, I’m up blogging.

If you’re reading this, perhaps, you can relate.  What is it about us “mommy bloggers”?  We just can’t get enough, can we?

I’ve had the idea for World Moms Blog’s “review/letter from the editor” column for our empty Saturday slot in my head for weeks now.  (I need help with the name for it, please help!) It’s time to put it into type…

Here’s how I describe it: (more…)

"Would you, could you on a tram?"

This week’s question came from Veronica Samuels, who asked…

“Where’s the Craziest Place You’ve Done IT?

So, as interesting and funny it would be to talk about the craziest places we mothers have conceived babies, we’re just not that type of blog.  But, what about after conception? Mothers of the world, tell us about the craziest places where you’ve given birth, changed a diaper or breastfed! Where’s the craziest place you’ve done it?”

Here are what some of our World Moms had to say…

A. Roselyn of California, USA writes:
“San Francisco, CA is very liberal and it is California law that gives mothers the right to breastfeed in public places. So I have fed my daughters, especially little girl, anywhere and everywhere. The craziest: walking down the street. Once I got her latched, we were off and running!” (more…)
