Websites I'm Reading, 6/7

In the few moments of spare time that I get, I am constantly checking out parenting and writing blogs.  Here are some that I'm reading this week:

The Children's Book Review--my friend Bianca (interview to come soon!) runs this blog.  I remember when she started it back in 2008, and now it has truly blossomed into a wonderful resource for book recommendations for kids of all ages.  Bianca and I used to work together at a children's store, and I'm not as up on what the newest books are for Bug's age as I used to be.  Luckily for me, I have this wonderful resource to turn to!

(a)Musing Foodie--Twitter is a great way to meet new people, and Liza Hawkins (a.k.a the (a)Musing Foodie) was a true find.  I often turn to her website when I am in a bind for dinner, and I want something different from our usual rotation.  (Speaking of which, have you noticed that whenever you add something to your usual rotation you're excited about it for about five minutes and then it becomes blah?  Yeah.  Yeah, that's how I feel lately!)  

For Mom and Keiki--I have included a link which takes you to their Facebook page, but you can also shop at their store  I highly recommend following them on Facebook because they always post a lot of great articles on attachment parenting, breastfeeding, cloth diapering, and so much more.  

Not too much going on around here.  We made it to the park on Monday, and then I spent Tuesday and Wednesday trying to get my house in order (and failing miserably).  Today I'm babysitting and I get to discover what it's like to have three boys in my household (pretty sure we're going to stick to two, though!:)).  The weather has been crazy in Northern Virginia lately--last Friday we had some fairly epic storms (and as a Floridian, I know storms!) which have resulted in cooler temperatures, causing my sinuses and allergies to go crazy.  Yesterday I actually wound up dozing on the couch while Cat dozed in his swing and Bug walked around saying, "Shh!  Shh!"

We are gearing up to take our first road trip--but more on that later.  I am excited because I booked our hotel!  I am looking forward to a couple of days at the beach with my wonderful family.  I'm sure Bug will love it.  Cat...well, we'll see. ;)
