Monster Likes #8 – 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…but I’ll let you in on a little secret: most of the time when I read blog posts nowadays, it’s because I saw a tweet about it! So make sure you tweet your posts for people like me (and there are a lot of us out there)!

These last few weeks have been hell for me – on top of being gone for Blissdom, my RSS feed not updating, my site getting hacked and then redirected to another site, and my kids not napping anymore (so I’ve lost 2-3 hours of work/computer time),  this week we were all sick. I have been tweeting and *trying* to visit blogs, but haven’t been noting the ones I wanted to include on Monster Likes. I’ve only noted one from a couple of weeks back…everything else is just cool stuff I’ve gotten emailed about!

Shell over at Things I Can’t Say wrote an incredible post that each and every mom I know can relate to…I don’t want to give anything away, so just go read My Child Would Never Do That.
