Sunday Surf

Theta Mom and JennyMac joined up to write a very straightforward posts on SAH and working mothers, on ambition and aspirations, which reminded me again we shouldn't be fighting each other, we should be changing the system.

ABM's post "Why we still need to watch our language" is a must read for all you lactivists. It explains clearly what's wrong with the 'breast is best'-way of thinking.

"If breastfeeding is extra credit, then it’s up to mom to over-achieve. The rest of us are off the hook." 
Another, totally different aspect of our language we should control, is its inherent violence, says Arwyn from Raising My Boychick in a very truthful and though provoking post. Since we're focusing so much on word's I thought I'd throw in this one on API speaks about saying no.

API speaks had a lovely post about shopping with toddlers. I believe we've all had the horrid shopping-with-kids experience, so maybe this is worth your attention.

On the topic of birth, I found this oldie on Birthwares about The Good Patient Syndrome that was certainly worth sharing.
She writes:
Sometimes I feel a bout of "Good Patient" Syndrome coming on, myself. Luckily, over time, I have developed a chronic case of "Informed Consent" which generally presents with my caregivers having a sharp pain in the rear.
