Friday Question: Last Book Read? Favorite Book?

This week we asked our writers,

What book did you last read? Or, what is your favorite book?

Here’s what they had to say!

Karyn Van Der Zwet of New Zealand states:

“The latest book I’ve read is ‘The Book of Fairy Princes’ by Isabel Wyatt, yes it is a children’s book, and I really like it because it is like an old-fashioned fairy tale book, but the boys are the focus not the girls. As a Mum to three boys – this is important in our house.” (more…)

Friday Question: Most Embarrassing Moments?

This week we asked our World Moms Blog writers,

“What is your most embarrassing moment in motherhood?”

All we can say is…get ready to laugh (or cringe) with us!

Kyla P’an of Massachusetts, USA admits:

“My four-year old received a thoughtful but somewhat juvenile birthday gift from an elderly neighbor. The next time we bumped into the neighbor, I thanked her profusely for her kindness and told her how much my daughter loved playing with the gift at which point my daughter chimed in,’no I don’t mommy, remember, it was for toddlers so we gave it to Rachel’s sister?’ (oops!)” (more…)

Friday Question: Have you told a little white lie?

This week we asked our World Moms Blog writers…

“Fess up, moms! Any white lies you want to admit to telling your children?”

The ladies, as usual, did not hold back…

Kirsten Jessiman of Toronto, Canada writes:

“My top three:

– If you keep pouting and the wind changes, your face will stay that way.

– The monsters went away because I punched them in the nose.

– Yes, I also have to go to my room when I say a bad word.” (more…)

MINNESOTA, USA: Mom FAIL Moments

Yippyy! It’s a brand new year and a brand new writing gig for me. What better way to introduce myself to y’all then to cozy up with you and let you know, nay ANNOUNCE to you, just what kind of a Mom I really am.

Lean in close, friends. Are you comfy? Perhaps with a cocktail in hand? Excellent. Here it is:

Sometimes? I kind of suck at the Mom thing.

Don’t get me wrong. Being a Mom is the most amazingly wonderfully fulfilling role that I have ever had. Bar none. My cup is over-flowing every single nano-second of every single day because I know that yes. Yes, I am indeed, THAT lucky to be THEIR mom. (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. Galit can be reached by E-mail galitbreen@gmail.com or Twitter @galitbreen.  And don’t forget to check out her personal blog, These Little Waves!
