COOL MOM RELATED STUFF FROM AROUND THE WEB

Every now and then I will be collecting a few of my favorite mom related blogs, op-eds, headlines, DIY projects and recipes to share with y'all.  The selections will be a variety of interesting tidbits to help you feel in the loop and up to date on hot topics that matter to moms.  Enjoy and let me know if I missed something that you think other moms might want to know about.

An open letter to Target letting them know that a 1 inch inseam on a pair of shorts for a 2 year old is not ok. That being said my daughter has 3 pairs of the aforementioned inappropriate shorts in her dresser right now.

WARNING: TEAR JERKER!

My good friend and parenting expert Lina Acosta Sandaal helps moms like me keep it real by reminding us that while my son is only “this many” (hold up however many fingers you need to) I am also only “that many” when it comes to being a mom.
