Parenting Discussions

Last week I discovered a discussion board about parenting. The very interesting part of the board is that the users are separated geographically, with one board for parents in New York City an another board for parents in San Francisco. Evidently, plans have been made to bring on more cities in the near future.

In the meantime, it is amazing to read the different attitudes between parents on the two coasts. This is beyond mommy blogging and quite an introspective on mothering differences. And, of course, I have opinions on several of the topics, so I have made a few tentative posts to see if my thoughts are received well or will I be flamed for my opinions?

A New Beer For Women

I just heard about a new beer that is being promoted in the state of Maryland specifically for women called Chick Beer. Now how cool is that? It is supposed to be a premium light American lager, which sounds perfect for what I like in a beer. I can’t wait until it hits the grocery stores around my area, I’m anioux to give it a try because I am also told that they are going to be donating a part of their profits to charities that are out there that are helping to empower women and I’m totally down with that!

Happy Birthday, Mom

It’s my mom’s birthday. I have to look up the date of the year and do the math to figure out how old she is, but I have to do that with everyone in the family now. The only one I know exactly how old they are is my brother, who is exactly 10 years younger than me.

I sent mom a Hallmark card and a gift card to a nice restaurant, so hopefully she will have a nice meal without having to cook. She was planning a nice quiet day at home, hope she enjoys her special day.

Hallmark Is The Best

No

This is currently my favorite Meghan Trainor song. She just keeps pumping out the hits. Her and Katty Perry just float this girl’s boat! They are always about some type of “Girl Power” and since I am a product of the 1980s the Spice Girls were a huge influence on girls of all ages back then!

Rumors

Today I heard a rumor that I am hoping isn’t too good to be true. I was told that we are going to be seeing higher gas prices in the near future, maybe even going up to over the $2 mark.

Now this particular person isn’t always the most reliable person in the world, so I’m not getting my hopes up on his word, but it sure would be nice to find out that he is right on this one.
