Sign Ups and Some Links

Hello! The sign ups for snack and devotional have been updated – you can find them, cryptically, under “Sign Up Schedules.” There’s still a blank devotion spot on November 28 and a blank snack spot on November 21, so if you’d like to volunteer for those dates, leave a comment!

I found a few interesting links around the internets, in case you haven’t come across them:

First off, if you’re on Pinterest, I sincerely hope you’re already aware of My Imaginary Well-Dressed Toddler. Anything that makes fun of the ridiculous idea of high fashion for little kids is fine by me!

A tongue-in-cheek guide to preparing for breastfeeding. I laughed pretty hard at this.

A more thoughtful link: on being the meanest mommy in the world. Are you a mean mommy? Did you have one?

And finally, six words to say to your child. I love the effect such a simple sentence has.

I hope you’re having a good Sunday, and I’ll see you on Thursday in your comfy pants! Bring a yoga mat if you have one.
