These are a Few of my Favorite Things

Sometimes, when things get especially bogged down, there is nothing for it but to turn to other people and read about THEIR lives.  So I thought I would share.

1) My blogging hero, since she is always funny and/or poignant (and she married my best friend, Mr. BPM, so that says something about her style and taste.) http://badparentingmoments.com/

2) One of my best friends has a very thoughtful blog on raising her kids (and her husband). http://snowflakesinjanuary.com

3) I am frequently stymied by questions about homeschooling.  Much of it is still foreign to me and I am learning as much as the Boy is.  So I like to turn to pages like this: http://www.google.com/url?q=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ted.com%2Ftalks%2Fken_robinson_says_schools_kill_creativity.html&sa=D&sntz=1&usg=AFQjCNElXnZ6O4qczO9-yEKmUYGa9JnSYw

(There are some other great TED Talks about education as well by this guy.)

4)  For darkly humorous and deeply personal takes on raising a child with disabilities, try the book MY BABY RIDES THE SHORTBUS. https://www.facebook.com/groups/35394681927/10151909054731928/?notif_t=group_activity
