My Top Ten List So Far

So I've been doing this blogging thing over a year now. I started at Babies Gotta Have It, but then I just got the yen to come here and write some of this stuff that 's going on in my life. I would actually like to write a book, but that's not something I seem to have the discipline to do during naps.

I've been reading a lot of blogs lately. Some of them are good. Really surprisingly good. Some are interesting and some are educational and some are funny. Really surprisingly funny. Like laugh out loud funny when you've been out to dinner with friends and you had that really strong mojito and you're really a teetotaler and you come home and your baby and husband are sleeping in nearby rooms and your apartment is really small but you're laughing in bursts through your nose like you've got the giggles up in the balcony in church kind of funny.

So this gal over at Piece o' Coconut Cake had the idea to create a top ten list of her favorite posts for her readers to check out while she's visiting her family in Guatemala. Let me just say, why doesn't my family live somewhere tropical and lush instead of somewhere that Puritans and farmers decided to remove rocks from and endure. Anyway, when you're up late reading blogs and eating thin mints and you want to meet some new bloggers, check out her list and the links at the end of her post.

I haven't actually written all that much in the last ten months. But I do have more than ten entries. So I went back through and scanned them and reread them. Here are the ten I like the best today.
  1. My Apology to the Girl at the Cruise Lines Audition My first post. Why and how I got into all this.
  2. What Does It Mean to Eat Your Children The post I wrote the day I stopped breastfeeding.
  3. Left Wing Butterflies Baby's First Birthday Post.
  4. Taking the A Train With My Baby New York, motherhood, and avoiding the culture of fear.
  5. Pole Dancing and Drag Shows That's just how I roll.
  6. The Apocalypse The Mayans and the end of the world.
  7. Lock Up Your Craft Scissors What happened when I cut my baby's hair. This became a weekly series.
  8. Pa Ingalls and My Responsibility Project When littering meets Halloween.
  9. Yes We Did. The video I took of people celebrating election night in the streets of New York.
  10. The Bouncing Remote, Baby TV and Why Doesn't My 17 Month Old Walk

    And as an extra bonus. A Conversation Late Last Night. This is short. It speaks for itself.

    Thanks for reading. Want to get a coffee?
