MINNESOTA, USA: The Photos Moms Take

In the seven years that I’ve been a mom, I have found some new interests, passions and ahem fixations. One of them being to find the best playgrounds in town.

I never used to worry about that before I had kids. Or, the finest pacifiers, best swimming lessons and  kid friendly (read: loudest) restaurants. Nope. I never used to wonder about those either.

But some of my interests have stayed exactly the same. Eerily, oddly, obsessively: The same. (more…)

Galit Breen (USA)

Once upon a time Galit Breen was a TRAVELER. She met amazing people and ate delicious food. And all was well with the world. And then, she started her real life. She became a STUDENT earning a BS in Human Development and an MA in Education. She became a classroom and reading TEACHER. She met a man on the internet (when it was gasp-worthy and new) and became his WIFE. She became a MINNESOTAN shortly after that, and he still owes her one for that. But the biggest earthquake shake to her soul was becoming a MOM. The interrupted sleep. The crying. The diapers. The lack of sleep. Did she mention the lack of sleep? But there was also the attachment, the touch, the bungee cords to her heart. Sigh. So today her labels are woven together. Tightly. A wife of one! A Mama of three! And a brand new puggle owner! Of one, people. Just one new puppy, thankyouverymuch. To keep her grounded and to add to the lack of lack of sleep factor, she writes. She writes about Motherhood. Parenting. Spirituality. Feminism. Education. Books. Writing. Balance. And Chocolate. Her writing is sometimes sarcastic, sometimes heart-warming and always transparent. Galit is a columnist at TC Jewfolk and has been published in places such as Jewesses With Attitude, Kveller and Scary Mommy. She is honored to connect with you here, at World Mom’s Blog.

Friday Question: What one item can you not live without?

Today’s Friday Question marks our 100th post on World Moms Blog!

This week’s question came from one of our writers – Kally Mocho.  She asked,

“As a mom, what one item can you not live without?”

Here are some indispensable items some of our moms cannot do without…

Eva Fannon of Washington State, USA writes:
“It would have to be diaper wipes. Even after my oldest was out of diapers (and the youngest wasn’t even born yet), we still kept buying them because they make cleaning dirty faces and hands so much easier!  I always keep an extra pack in the car.” (more…)

Friday Question: Favorite Grab ‘n Go or Quick Fix Food?

This week we asked our writers,

 “What is your favorite grab ‘n go or quick fix food?”

 Here’s what some of our busy moms had to say…

 

Maggie Ellison of South Carolina, USA writes:

“On the go, I grab a banana, cheese stick and an apple juice box for the kids.  I’ve been working on adding carrots to that and so far, so good.  If they need more, I will throw some pretzels or crackers in a bag.  It all just depends what we have and what we will be doing.” (more…)

MINNESOTA, USA: The Things Moms Say

Jason and I met on-line in 1999. You know, WAY back when it was still gaspworthy and new to do so. We were long distance for about a year while he finished up school in Wisconsin and I was teaching and grad-schooling in California. Did I make you gasp again with the whole older woman thing? I’m a surprise a minute, people.

Living three-hour-flights away from each other meant that we put in A LOT of phone time. I think our record was a nine-hour marathon. True story.

At the end of each and every day we would curl up in sweats and cozy blankets and just…talk. We talked about politics, religion, gourmet food, sex, movies, art. (more…)
