Donna Donnelly – The Breakup That Hurts More Than Anything: Getting Dumped By Your Babysitter - The Storked Blog
Did you ever have someone breakup with you? How terrible was it? Now imagine it’s your babysitter!!! The Storked Blog page at Glamour.com had an interesting post this month discussing the dreaded end of babysitter relationships. Finding good babysitters and cultivating the relationship between your child(ren) and you and them is very difficult, especially for single parents. As a child of a single working mother, I remember well, the parade of babysitters that went through our door! How do you make sure you keep the good ones in and keep the bad ones away? How young is too young to leave your children in their own care?
Kelly Voelker – Be Safe This Halloween – Because I Said So
This post made me laugh because it brought me back to my days as a kid Trick-or-Treating when we lived in Syracuse, NY.

Heidi Parker - Shopping as Therapy – Mommy in Pink
I love this post, because what gal wouldn’t jump at the chance to do a little shopping for herself when handed a wad of cash? I look forward to days like these with my little one, I just hope he or she loves to shop (and considers it therapy) as much as I do!
