An excellent point (and some Mommy blog love)

LeeAnn from "Tales from the Crib" makes some excellent points about motherhood, careers, and reality. The beginning paragraph makes an EXCELLENT point:
Just because we're women does not mean we must have it all. I think a big mistake women in western culture make is to think that we should have a career and motherhood both, without sacrificing some part of one or the other. Men don't get to do that, so why do we think we deserve more "rights"? Why should I expect others to pay for me to have it both ways?
The whole thing is very worth reading.

And since I'm linking to an excellent motherhood blog, I ought to link to a few others--some of my favorite Mormon mommy blogs that help me feel better about myself AND help me want to be better. Tracy M. at Dandelion Mama; Heather O. and the Wiz and others (including Tracy M.) at Mormon Mommy Wars; Kathryn at Daring Young Mom (which blog made me laugh until I cried); and Mom on a Wire.

  • Sorry about the crying. I'll work on that. Thanks for the link.

  • A link from a low traffic blog like ours probably won't amount to much of a traffic spike (though it will probably help you PageRank) but I know that Keryn has sure enjoyed reading anecdotes from her fellow travellers in motherhood.

  • I don't care about the traffic spike. I just thought it was nice. I actually really like making people cry. :)

  • DYM--I discovered your blog and promptly read the archives. Bradley thought I was slightly batty, because I was giggling hysterically one minute and crying with shared emotion the next. I am in awe of your talent--you are an amazing writer. Thanks for being willing to share with the rest of us.
