Encouragement For Hard Days

Things are a bit quiet on the blog at the moment, because Anna and I are tending to sick kids, homeschooling, and generally taking care of our families.  I’m currently using my regularly scheduled blogging time to read The Mommy Brain at the request of my friend and faithful E2S reader Catherine.  Expect a book review eventually!  And really, if anyone else has a book or article about moms or kids or parenthood that you’d like us to review, please do ask us in the comments!

In the meantime, here are some blog posts I’ve been revisiting for encouragement and inspiration of late:

Rachel Jankovic’s post over at Femina on When the Milkshake Runs Low is one that I reread every year when my energy and attitude are flagging.

Bethany’s post on Bon bons for the Modern Mom is a good reminder about my use of the internet and what my priorities should be.

Like Mother, Like Daughter’s Leila had a very applicable post for me last week on taking care of a sick child at home!

    I would like to hear your take on The Measure of Success by Carolyn McCulley and Nora Shank. I really enjoyed the beginning, the history of work since the Protestant Reformation, but I didn’t finish the second section (partly I lost interest and partly it was due back to the library).

    Oh, I’m so excited you got my suggestion! I only made it through a few chapters before my time was up at the library, so I’ll have to go back and get it and dig in again!

      So I checked it out on my nook, but it’s the kind of book I want to mark up and underline, so I’m going to have to get a hard copy to refer to as I actually write about it. Fascinating data!
