Start off the week with World Moms Blog in the Middle East!  Deborah Quinn (Mannahattamamma) in the United Arab Emirates describes,

“I wasn’t prepared, myself, for the way that wealth is on display here: that the Porsche Cayenne is basically the Chrysler mini-van of the Gulf…”

Deborah tells us all about why she is often asked by her children, “Mommy, are we rich?”

On Tuesday, we hop on over to Saudi Arabia, where Mama B. gives us a follow-up to her previous article, The Choices We Make (For Them), about choosing the best school to meet her son’s needs.  Can’t wait to hear what she decided!

Wednesday Maggie Ellison in South Carolina is up! Maggie takes us through something many of us moms can relate to — bath time! Her son has a unique way to wash his hair…

Thursday, we head to England with international journalist, Sophie Walker, who writes a wonderfully descriptive post about her recent trip to Norfolk, England. Here’s an excerpt:

“We arrived in the dark, our headlights sweeping around the corners of the single-track lane as we drove and illuminating fringes of fields and hedgerows that suggested vast open spaces further beyond. Snow and ice crackled beneath the tyres. In front, suddenly: a white-faced owl…”

It’s a beautiful read!

A second post on Thursday introduces us to new writer, Mama Mzungu, and takes us to Africa!  She is pregnant with her second child and will soon be telling us all about her life in Kenya!

Friday, we head across the Atlantic to Canada, where Carol @ If By Yes.  She tells us in her post, “So when I saw a notice at the Reproductive Mental Health Centre looking for participants in a study on infant feeding in mothers with depression and anxiety, I volunteered. Why not give back?” So much to learn here!

On Saturday, check out the Saturday Sidebar with Eva Fannon, where the World Moms give their thoughts on an important topic, and chime in with your answers to the week’s question!
