Welcome to the Sunday Surf, a tour of the best blogposts I've read throughout the week.

Write along with the Weekly Parenting Poetry Workshop:
April is National Poetry Month, and I want to celebrate poems and parenting in one beautiful span of five poetry-drenched weeks.
Come along with me on this challenge with one simple mission in mind:
Write some parenting poetry.
That's it. It doesn't have to be amazing (though you'll find that a lot of it is!). You just have to write, and then share — inspire, and be inspired.
We're each writing at least one parenting-themed poem a week on an overarching parenting theme, which I post on Mondays. On Fridays, I post a linkup so we can all share what we've been working on, and then we enjoy reading each other's work.
I also post daily prompts for the week in advance, both to give you more of an idea of what the theme represents, and for any overachievers who want to write more than one poem a week! Remember, anyone who writes and posts a poem for each day of the challenge automatically wins a signed prize copy of Poetry of a Hobo Mama, and anyone who writes and posts at least weekly will be entered into a drawing for one.
For full details and to grab a badge, see the intro post.
