Monster Likes #5 – 2012

It’s the weekend and you know what that means…it’s time for Monster Likes! What’s Monster Likes? I list my favorite selection of posts I found throughout bloggy land over the past week.

If one of your posts is listed below and you want the badge, just shoot me an email or leave me a comment and I’ll send you the badge to put on your post!

And now on to the good stuff….

Don’t be afraid to admit that your kids irritate you sometimes! If you read my blog you know I do it a lot! And sweet Shell over at Things I Can’t Say  wrote a funny post called Annoying Things Kids Do that will have you nodding all the way through it!

One of the reasons I LOVE when people tweet out blog posts that they love on Twitter is because I find new bloggers to stalk read…kind of the purpose of Monster Likes, right? Anyways…@TheNextMartha tweeted out this: This art teacher story breaks my heart for her son. @rockdrool”  Of course I love @TheNextMartha, so went to check it out. And Melissa at Rock & Drool was raw, honest, and very upset about what happened. So was I . And you will be too. Go read Art and Judgement.

Deirdre from JDaniel4’s Mom wrote an amazing post called Knowing There Is Scar Tissue On My Heart about mental, spiritual and emotional scar tissue that will really make you think. It reminds me of my post Scar Tissue that I wrote last year and if you are carrying around any emotional scars, they’re both worth the read.
