Grown and Flown on Scary Mommy!

Among the top blogs we have fallen in love with is Scary Mommy, the brainchild of Jill Smokler. If we loved Scary Mommy before, we love her even more now that we are  guest posted on her site. As we send Jill this digital thank you note, we hope we are also sending you over to check out our newest post, The Myth of Protection, right now on Scary Mommy.

Scary Mommy

Here are the reasons why we love Scary Mommy:

1. She finds humor – and lots of it – in the daily grind of motherhood.

2. She has written not one but two books – including the fantastic new release, Motherhood Comes Naturally (and other Vicious Lies.)

3. She is an incredibly lovely and gracious person who has launched several charity initiatives including one for the victims of the Boston bombings.

4. She is generous with her space – offering guest posts to people like, you guessed it, US!!!
