Put on your seatbelts, because we’re off to Israel on Monday! Susie Newday talks about that thing that we sometimes love, sometimes hate, and always worry about in terms of its effect on our kids – the TV.
A message of unity and seeing things beyond how you see them and…breathing. Intrigued? We’ve really got something special for you on Tuesday in our Social Good column!

What are the chances of wireless internet going down in a hotel that is hosting a huge blogging event? Ugh!! So, the Saturday Layover has been delayed…to the Monday Layover this week!
But, who am I kidding? It was a much needed break, as my brain was aching and beginning to shutdown from all the information – many intense conference sessions and non-stop networking (I like to call it friend making) with interesting people.
The overwhelming majority of people I met were genuinely interested in making new blogging friends, save for a few outliers. But, guess what? I got to meet World Moms Blog writers, Mama Robin J from Canada and Galit Breen from Minnesota, USA. I stalked them like the papparazzi. (I hoped they didn’t mind.) It was GREAT to meet some of our writers in person!! Whooohoo!!! (more…)
This week’s Friday Question comes from World Moms Blog writer, The Alchemist, from India. She asked:
“What is that one trait/quality of your child of which you are so proud?”
Today, World Moms Blog writers are granted permission to brag about their kids! Here’s how they answered…
Asta Burrows of Norway states:
“I honestly can’t pick one! He is only 18 months (and I don’t want to sound like a horrible, smug annoying mother), but I am proud of everything at the moment; that he can almost drink from a cup, that he eats most things put in front of him apart from salad, that he just learned to wave and say “bye-bye” at the same time… Oh, but I guess one of the things I love/appreciate the most (guess “proud” is the wrong word to use) is that he sleeps through the night, usually 12-13 hours. He has done since he was 4 months old! ”
Allison Lee from Malaysia replies:
“It’s so hard to pick just one trait! I love that my son (18 months) has a burgeoning vocabulary. Hearing him talk is such a joy. He’s also a very sweet and affectionate hug, always coming in for hugs and kisses. He started sleeping through the night, in his own bed and room, and for that, I’m so proud.” (more…)
