Wisdom from Mom Bloggers

Mom bloggers are awesome: they can be punchy, smart, original, honest, controversial, insanely inspiring, and fall-off-your-chair funny.

Catherine’s Rankings

I love my mom because she loved me well and made sure that I was always, always surrounded by light and laughter and love. Because she always viewed me through mother-colored glasses, and even though I didn’t realize the value of that at the time, I’ve come to understand that it was a remarkable, powerful gift. Because she was, and remains, the original bad mother. What’s not to love about that?

  1. Margaret Wheeler Johnson says:

    I love how honest these answers are. Mom-daughter relationships are some of the toughest in our lives, and I think they only get harder when the daughter is an adult herself. Thanks to all of the bloggers for telling it like it is the good, the bad, and the sometimes fuzzy, sometimes prickly in-between space.

    “Because she reads my blog” that’s a pretty good reason…
