Weekend Reads 9.22.12

I’m so excited to share my friend’s new blog for Parents Magazine!  Bekka Besich is a childhood friend of mine who is a delight to be around and a hoot to read.  She’s writing all about her experiences expecting baby #2 in her blog, Great Expectations.  Her tongue-in-cheek, ruthlessly honest, and “endearingly imperfect” stories will make you laugh till you cry.  (And because I’ve been reading her personal blog as well, I know there are times she’ll  make you just plain old cry.  This one still gets me every time.) Check out her blog and become a fan of hers on Facebook!

Articles:

Birthday Challenge: 35 Acts of Kindness.  One Day.  {Inner Child Fun}

How to Volunteer…Helping Your Kid’s Teacher {A Mom with a Lesson Plan}

Two gems from Janet Lansbury (I told you you should be following her, right?)–

“Anyone old enough to love is old enough to grieve.”
