A Mother’s Prayer by a Famous Empowered Mom

I love writing. And writing well. It’s sort of like crafting a good recipe and meal.

I love to read good writing almost as crating it myself.

So when I came across Melody Godfred’s blog, Write in Color, it was like finding an old friend.  If you love good writing – go here – often.

When I checked in with Melody this morning, I was happy to find a brilliantly written Mom’s poem by none other than Tina Fey. Talk about an Empowered Mom!

So with props to both Tina (for the writing) and Melody (for the sharing), I want to make sure my peeps get a chance to enjoy this little treasure.

Easter is the second most important candy-eating occasion of the year for Americans, chowing down 7 Billion pounds of candy in 2010, according to the National Confectioners Association.

In 2000, Americans spent nearly $1.9 billion on Easter candy, while Halloween sales were nearly $2 billion; Christmas, an estimated $1.4 billion; and Valentine’s Day, just over $1 billion. In 2010 we gobbled up 8.2 BILLION dollars in sweets–so much for improving the American diet!

Painting Your SON’S Nails Pink. What Do YOU Think??

So put this under the heading, “What Were They Thinking?”

It began when a photo of J. Crew’s president and creative director, Jenna Lyons, painting the toenails of her son Beckett in an ad, was sent to customers last week in a feature, “Saturday with Jenna.”

Jenn says, “Lucky for me I ended up with a boy whose favorite color is pink,” and says, “Toenail painting is way more fun in neon.”

This sparked a firestorm of debate regarding gender identity.
