My post on Scott’s Valentine’s Day gift to me has made it to the mom forums, and after hearing a few of the comments, I’m pretty sure thousands of significant others hate my husband. Oh well. I always appreciate y’all sharing Late Enough even if Scott now has to fear for his safety.
The fact is we all want to be seen. The dance club made me feel seen. Holiday and day-to-day are not about being fancy. The moments, the relationship, the marriage are about being known by another person in all our beauty and in all our failure and still being loved and celebrated.
Anyway, when I’m not getting noses squished into my face, I’m reading and writing all over the Internet.
My Other Hangouts (don’t tell my blog):
- Why Can’t Boys Celebrate Valentine’s Day: On Richmondmom, I complain about how my 5-year-old son can only celebrate Valentine’s Day if likes dogs or has a girlfriend.
- A Weird Book and Its Giveaway: On This Blogger Makes Fun of Stuff, I review the book, I Hate You, Kelly Donahue, which is the odd book of a nemesis’ diary. I laughed. I cringed. I’m giving one away to you. Ends 2/22.
- Win $50 Grocery Gift Card to Martin’s: On my Facebook page, Kleenex and I are giving away (3) $50 gift cards for visiting a Kleenex® Brand Sharing Station found at various Martin’s Grocery Stores throughout the Richmond area. End 2/20.
Favorite posts I didn’t read, I mean, write:
- Emily Hubbel and Childhood Cancer Facts: From a reader who just wants people to understand a little more about childhood cancer. Her daughter, Emily, has Stage IV Neuroblastoma, and Shannon realized how uncomfortable and misinformed people are about childhood cancer. (important)
- real women: From Hanna Blank’s blog, real women do not just have curves because real women do not look like one thing. (exactly)
- Beyond Pelvic Politics: From the New York Times, why are we putting one religion’s opinion over the well-being of women? If you work for a Jehovah’s Witness should you be denied blood transfusions? (high-five)
