Here is my last edition of NCLM:
1) Claire gets me all misty about graduation as well as wondering where my former peeps are today. Most of 'em I know and thanks to knowing Huffy & being on Facebook, I've caught up with a few more. Don't be shy!
2) Hijas Americanas tempts me with jewelry
3) Profound Sarcasm is tracking Alex Trebek's D-bag status.
4)Jenny knows how to celebrate the big 4-0!
5) Lastly, Stirrup Queens, mama of NCLM, is having her blogoversary today!

OH...and Queen of Spain is having a Twitter wake! Don't miss it.

Comment back: the working mommy gourmet - my bestest mommy friend and a woman who puts me to shame in the kitchen. I have no idea how she cooks so much with TWO kids!

Whew! thanks to all the new readers, I hope you stick around! I know I found a few new ones.

I learned a lot during this month. For one, I normally do leave a lot of comments. The second, I love getting them! So keep 'em up peeps! :)

Thanks for the shout out - and right back at you! (I am personally in awe of all the activist and political work you do and the blogging and writing.... and a terrific mommy to boot!)

Greetings! With all the commenting going on, I wanted to send out a shout-out to you to thank you for adding your full feed to your RSS. Seriously, I hate when bloggers only use partial feeds, as it defeats the purpose of having feed readers (since I end up having to open up yet another window/tab, which -- when you have 50 or so feeds like I do -- can result in a couple dozen sites you end up having to open up).

I've been an RSS reader of your site for a few months and am loving your writing. Keep up the awesome work!

Frederick, A Virtual Puppet Performance - Read by Michael Shannon

WOW...this is my first post during the Coronavirus pandemic! I hope you and your loved ones are healthy and safe. Thanks to the Chicago Children’s Theatre, the city’s largest professional theater devoted exclusively to children and families, for launching a new YouTube channel, CCTv: Virtual Theatre and Learning from Chicago Children’s Theatre. To kick if off we are treated to Frederick. Here's hoping this helps with your little ones. Or is a comfort to everyone of all ages. Chicago Children’s Theatre’s all-new virtual puppet performance was created while all of the artists were sheltering in place, working with resources limited to what they had in their homes or on their laptops. Frederick is directed by CCT Co-Founder and Artistic Director Jacqueline Russell. Puppets and sets were designed, built and puppeteered in a home studio by Grace Needlman and Will Bishop, CCT’s Director of Production, the creative team behind CCT’s annual series of Beatrix Potter puppet show

Book Review: Wolfpack by Abby Wambach

Less than a year ago, Abby Wambach took the stage at Barnard's commencement and gave a speech that shook many, including myself, to the core . Her speech went viral and I made the above image in order to share the highlights of her speech. Earlier this month Abby released the speech in book form. Wolfpack : How to Come Together, Unleash Our Power, and Change the Game is short (less than 100 pages) but is much more than just her speech . You get a peek into how the speech came together and why she said everything. And because the book is short and is an expanded speech, it moves quickly. I feel that it moves with the same ferocity that Abby use to move down a soccer field. And you might find yourself cheering as she takes you through the story. Abby has always been one of my favorite players. The way she ran amok on the pitch was exactly the way I felt I played sports. Never caring how you looked and giving it your all. Leaving it all on the field. When she retired from socc
