Book Worm Wednesday Blog Hop

Posted Feb 06 2013 3:00am
Ladies Holiday
     We're back in the habit, with a Book Worm Wednesday blog hop/linky party on the first Wednesday of every month. The rules are few and simple: Link up family friendly posts that in some way relate (it can be loosely related) to something you've recently read or been reading. 
It doesn't have to be a book necessarily. It could be a newspaper or magazine article, a poem, inspirational quote, or you can even share a link to another person's blog post that found particularly fabulous. Get creative and spread the fun and knowledge of whatcha' been readin'!
That's basically it. 
It would be great if you followed us via any of our social networks found in the right sidebar. We follow back!
It's also always nice when you leave comments, read posts by other's who've linked up and comment on their posts as well. Remember following brings followers :) so feel free to follow other bloggers you find here too.
Grab Ladies Holiday badge (side bar) or go to our Blog Hops and Badges page (top tool bar) to use our Book Worm Wednesday badge.
Now on with the fun!
     Lately I haven't had the time I wish for to read novels, but I've been having fun reading blog posts and the occasional NPR articles that I find posted by my friends on Facebook or found on my Twitter feed.       I follow actress and Mother Warrior Jenny McCarthy on Twitter ( @JennyMcCarthy .) I adore her sense of humor, her candor, and her guts. Yup, I love her guts. :) She is a woman who will move mountains for her child. I'm sure we all feel that way as mothers, but I have been particularly inspired by her example in her books  Louder Than Words: A Mother's Journey in Healing Autism  and  Mother Warriors: A Nation of Parents Healing Autism Against All Odds I highly recommend you check them out.       But I digress. A few days ago Jenny posted a link on Twitter that caught my eye. The link lead to a blog post she had written for Splash "A Chicago Sun-Times Publication."

This particular article posed an interesting question: should stay at home moms (SAHMs) be paid a salary for their work? I'm not interested in any working mom vs SAHM debate/drama, because I think that either way, we love our kids, try until we're bone tired to do right by them every day, and often feel that still we aren't doing enough or doing it as well as we'd like. Working Mom vs SAHM? We should be versus each other at all, we should understand each other and support each other. I loved that Jenny made it clear in her post that she was not trying to incite this debate either and that she has respect for all parents.            I was intrigued by the question she posed though and I loved the idea of tracking expenses in order to ultimately make room for Moms (or stay at home Dads) to be paid a "salary" may not be much, but it could be enough to feel a little more valued for the work that these moms do each day in the home and maybe be able to afford a pedicure once in awhile or to load up her eReader with a pile of books that she's been dying to read. I can get behind that! I encourage you to check out this fabulous post by Jenny McCarthy and leave comments there, or here, or both letting us know what you think. 
Here's to another great read!and how about a giant cheer for working moms everywhere--inside and outside of the home--WE ROCK!!
