Carla: This is worth talking about.
It turns out that when it comes to the working mom/at-home mom conversation, we have been dealing with a “straw woman” of sorts. It seems to be news to the people who write the news that the majority of stay-at-home moms are there not because of some deep-seated value about [...]<img alt="" border="0" src="http://stats.wordpress.com/b.gif?host=themommyrevolution.wordpress.com&blog=4704576&post=684&subd=themommyrevolution&ref=&feed=1" />

Caryn: How do I put this delicately? Ummm…….Well, today has sucked. Sucked. Sucked. Big time.
My kids are off school. It’s cold and rainy.  My kids have been fighting because they’re bored and cooped up. None of us feel great, but aren’t quite sick. I’m depressed that I can’t just curl up in bed and be [...]<img alt="" border="0" src="http://stats.wordpress.com/b.gif?host=themommyrevolution.wordpress.com&blog=4704576&post=696&subd=themommyrevolution&ref=&feed=1" />

Carla: Caryn and I spent an incredible weekend at Christianity 21 and I for one am still so overwhelmed by it all I’m not sure I can write about it yet. Hopefully we’ll be able to connect some dots in the coming days and put words around this amazing experience.

Carla: The other day I saw one of my favorite Monty Python sketches in which four men reminisce about their youth, each one trying to best the others’ tales of woe. It reminded me of something that happens too often among mothers–reverse bragging. In fact, I did it myself yesterday.

Carla: If you aren’t familiar with Andy Crouch and his book/blog Culture Making, well you should be. Today, he links to a short discussion of a documentary I hope we all get to see one day. It’s called Koolhaus Houselife.
The premise of the documentary is to see what it’s like to actually live in a fancy-pants [...]<img alt="" border="0" src="http://stats.wordpress.com/b.gif?host=themommyrevolution.wordpress.com&blog=4704576&post=660&subd=themommyrevolution&ref=&feed=1" />
