Mother's Day is quickly approaching and thus my Google Reader is full of craft ideas, party ideas, gift ideas, essays, etc all on mothers.
I thought I would spend the days leading up to the big day posting some of my favorites from my Reader.
Photo: Diana and the boys. What a beautiful photo of a beautiful woman.
Essay: Why Moms Should Quit
Book: Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother. I just started and finished this book in one day. It's a quick read. Sort of ironic that I read it around this time, but I can't control what books arrive from my neverending library hold list. I heard about this book via an interview with the author on NPR. While the book was entertaining, I didn't think it was as shocking as its billing warranted - maybe because all of the "shocking" parts were covered in the interview? An interesting perspective on the life of a mother but, in my mind, not a must read.
