Sunday Surf: Wet towels, cheap clothes, & celebrating a C-section

Sunday Surf with Authentic Parenting and Hobo MamaWelcome to the Sunday Surf, a tour of the best blogposts I've read throughout the week.

Grandma's visit's made me want to take a vacation, too. But look at me, all diligent with my Sunday Surf.

Well, sort of diligent. Just a couple links:

  • Swistle: Prosecutable Offenses 

    This made me start actually laughing. What are your household dealbreakers?
  • Clothing the Mama: The Parent Vortex 

    Very interesting thoughts about how many clothes we have vs. how many we need and how much we spend vs. how much quality we’re buying. This is my comment:
    So interesting. I’ve been thinking about this topic recently as well. The plight of factory workers overseas has really been hitting me. However, being the size that I am, I have trouble finding clothes that fit just about anywhere, but particularly at thrift shops, where at least I know I’d be ethically shopping (not to mention helping my budget). I just kind of hate shopping in general, and shopping with little kids is akin to poking myself in the eye with a sharp stick. I’d like to shop on Etsy, but I can’t afford it at the moment. I can sew, but that leads to its own quandaries: First of all, I need more training in clothes making in particular. Then, where do I find the time? Where can I find quality fabric that’s not too expensive?
    I also appreciated the article Michelle linked to: The History of a Cheap Dress

Carnival news:

CarNatParSubmit to the March Carnival of Natural Parenting by this Tuesday, March 6. The topic is Parenting With Special Needs:

Many of us are touched by caring for a child who stretches our parenting skills. Others of us have experience being a parent with special needs, or having parents of our own or a partner with special needs. Share your story or some specific elements or tips on raising children despite the challenges.

Find other carnivals at my Natural Parenting Carnival Linky. And please, please, please help me keep it updated by adding in carnivals OR memes (recipe linkups and the like) that you're hosting or entering! It would be soooo helpful. Don't be worried that yours is too small — I want to promote everybody's special blog parties! Even if the carnival or meme is already represented but you want to update the information, enter it again and I'll go in and delete the old info. Thank you! I'd love to make it a helpful resource for all of us.

sorry, it's probably not obvious who that last comment was from since my google handle is different from my blog name.
