Babble's Top 100 Mom Blogs of 2011
Dawn Meehan of Because I Said So
- #40 Babble Best
We’re huge Dawn Meehan fans over here for a few reasons. First, we love the way she signs every post with her name and a smiley face, like those mothers in movies of our youth. We love that her posts – also found at her Babble Voices blog, Because I’m the Mom – are straightforward, unembellished little tidbits of a life with six (yes, six) kids and a husband who is recovering from alcoholism. And we love how she’s just really not afraid of a good poop story or three.
This is a mom who’s just out there doing it – no spin, no fancy pictures – just the earnest, funny, everyday life of a pretty big family. Sincere, optimistic and religious, Dawn’s also well loved. She’s won the Best Parenting Blog, Best Humor Blog, and Hottest Mommy Blog on the Blogger’s Choice Awards, and she’s even written a great little book of insights: Because I Said So: And Other Tales From a Less Than Perfect Parent.
