Things I've Learned This Week
1) That the trolls that cruise the flashier corners of the blogosphere are waaaay meaner than your everyday, run-of-the-mill mommyblogger tards. The thrill of getting a post up at the must-read Huffington Post was harshed somewhat by the sting of blogtardage.
An example: reading your piece made me want to scream... (at) my own mother.
He didn't mean that in a good way.
2) That it's cool to see your writing up at a site like the Huffington Post, even with the blogtardage. Bring it on, bitches.
3) That the mothers of the blogosphere are extraordinary. Okay, so maybe this wasn't something new that I learned, but the lesson sure was hammered home. Your songs of love for your children, your odes to the profound physical connection that bonds mother and child, have been taking my breath away. Moving me, and inspiring me, and reminding me that this is an extraordinary community.
Thirty-five posts and counting. Keep singing.
4) That babies will eat cat food if they can get it.
Veganism is making me pale. Bring on the meat pellets!
