Yesterday a twitter friend tweeted that she had two controversial blog posts brewing in her mind, but she wasn’t sure about writing them. I jokingly said, well don’t write about me being a perfect parent, you don’t need that controversy.
We laughed, but an idea was born. An idea to have a blog carnival that celebrates what we do as mothers.
Mothers are good at pointing out what we don’t do. Where we struggle. We often feel like we have to defend ourselves.
I think that should change.
And not just at Mother’s Day, much more often. So here comes the Mother’s Pride Blog Carnival.
I envision once a month hosting a blog carnival where we write about what we do–whether it is a craft, a recipe, a parenting decision–no mattter the topic, the point is to be proud of what we do, no defending allowed, just pride.
So, mark your calendar for March 15th! That is my mom’s birthday and I think it would be a great day to CELEBRATE!!!
We’ll start that day and continue monthly on the 15th. Will you get ready to celebrate with me? Start thinking about what you want to take pride in on March 15th!
Survive til you Thrive!
