fun in a box


a father-daughter moment, courtesy an old cardboard box
(should i paint / decorate the box? hmmm...)

just a few random items for tonight - i'm almost too sleepy to think anymore!

did you know that next week is apparently national work-at-home mom week? i, for one, choose to change outta my pajamas though... makes me feel too sloppy / unproductive otherwise...

a good college friend of mine sent me an article about moms getting organized to fight for their rights with groups like moms rising. has anyone actually seen their motherhood manifesto dvd? what do you think?

i'm reading happy birthday or whatever: track suits, kim chee, and other family disasters thanks to beloved's recommendation. the author, annie choi, is freakin' hilarious - i can't count the number of things that "make mommy krayjee" but it's all so painfully yet ridiculously true.

and i'm still stuck on nina's last meme challenge... i'll post my response this weekend but it might be a little wacky. (who am i kidding? it's just bizarre!) see you then!

    That's a nice sized box. Totally paint it. Don't worry bout the meme... my friend Brian is doing it piece meal. He only has #10 and #9 done. :)

    I can't wait to read that book.

    I want to get involved in Moms Rising. I think what they are doing is great, and so important. Just imagine, if we got all the mothers in the U.S. involved in advocating for better, how much we could change things!

    Oops, meant better work/ family policies.

    I totally agree, Rachel - it would be so great to see that grassroots movement make some real changes in the lives of moms... or at least set the stage for our girls' future options.
