Nothing to see here....Go here to read me instead

1. The current issue of Bitch Magazine is out & if you don't subscribe, go pick it up. But until you can do that, you can read me online at their website. Please leave comments!

2. I'm guest blogging at The 3 R's...it's a repost of a book review. Go...read it again or the first time!

3. I posted at Chicago Parent about a colleague of mine who was featured at CP about how kids of same sex couples often get bullied.

4. Don't forget to enter the book give-a-way for "Writing Motherhood" either!

NCLM Comments for today:
1. ACLU Blog
2. Sciencewoman outlines the difference between the NWSA conference and an engineers conference. Yes, I said I was going to be at NWSA, but mommy duties won out this year. If only Southwest flew to Cincinnati, I totally could have done both!
3. Latina Lista on how us Latin@ bloggers & voters are still getting shafted by Obama.
4. Shine has the dish on a 17 girl pregnancy pact. Yes, you read that right.

That's a great article in Bitch, and it's true! Mommies of color are rarely given any outlets or recruited for the blogosphere, but there's also another group that I feel is undermined as well: the stepmothers.

I'm a custodial stepmother with the biological mother completely out of the picture and I feel that in a society where the familial make-up is changing to one of a blended family, I think the stepmothers aren't given as much credit for what they do either considering that a lot of them also put as much love, work, and effort to raising kids that aren't theirs as the biological parents, and this seems to me to be another group that is underrepresented as well.

Step-moms...yes, very much so are ignored in our entire society. Me thinks too many fairy tales are to blame.

And thanks for the kudos on the article!

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
