We’re introducing a new feature here on Strollerderby this week, one that will hopefully show up every Friday. We’d like to think we cover all the parenting news that’s fit to type up, but we’ve got little monkeys running around our houses that sometimes demand our attention too.
Fortunately, a few of our friends outside the crib fill in for us. And Strolllerderby’s bringing them home. We’ll give you a look at What They’re Babbling About every week, so you can have a playdate with us.
So what’s the babble been like this week?
Good Enough Mother Rene Syler remembers begging for the white dolls that her friends had because there were none out there that looked just like her. With the hype (and mini scandal) over the now-renamed Sasha and Malia dolls, she ponders – is the attention on black girls good for little ones? – Parent Dish
Wondering what the baby’s really thinking? Belle Vivir’s got a letter from the baby to the Big Guy upstairs. And if you’re expecting mush, look elsewhere because this baby’s got some attitude. – Belle Vivir
If your Net Nanny’s keeping out all the good stuff (like searchines of crib bedding people, come on, get your minds out of the gutter) how about a pile of kid-friendly Web search engines? – MOMformation
If there’s no man around to play daddy, you’re perfectly fine on your own. But you could always join forces with a bunch of other single moms to make your own big happy family. – Jezebel
So you hand your maternity clothes off to a friend who’s got a bun in the oven and . . . uh oh, you’re preggers. Can you ask for the clothes back? – Alpha+Mom
