There was an article this week over at the Sydney Morning Herald called The Rise of the Mummy Blogs:
Cate Bolt wrote a post yesterday called Look How Far We've Come. It's smart and true. It addresses some things the SMH left out.
There's so many amazing Australian bloggers ... 32 of them have come together to collaborate on Things They Didn't Tell You About Parenting All proceeds go to Cate Bolt's Indonesian Orphanage, Foundation 18.
"This book brings together some of the best voices from Australia’s parent blogging sphere. We told the bloggers .... the book would be about all the things that no one tells you about parenting. We told them that ALL money raised from the book would go to Foundation 18 – they would be parents helping a parent to help children. And we waited. And then they told us."
You can buy it for $4.99 and make a difference. I just bought it even though I already had a copy. Might buy it one more time, just to be sure.
My chapter in this ebook is on one of the best and worst days of my life - the day of my second sons birth. And how it's ok to tell your children the truth about things. (May as well .. they find the truth anyway.)
I like new chapters. I like moving forward. My entire life I have been shrugging off labels ... I know who I am. Who other people think I am doesn't make one lick of difference.
