St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner, and many parents are blogging about fun crafts, activities and recipes this week to make with the kids. Hillary at My Scraps featured a quick and easy St. Patrick’s Day tag craft, and Jessica at the B Keeps Us Honest shared a tasty-looking recipe for shamrock-shaped Paleo Chocolate Truffles. Barb at a Life in Balance shared a St. Patrick’s Day Paper Shamrock craft.
Amy at Mom Advice has a great collection of 18 Easy St. Patrick’s Day Ideas that includes everything from a rainbow yarn wreath to St. Patrick’s Day candy bark (ummm… yes, please!). Meanwhile, Anitra at the MamaZone has a list of 25 Simple St. Patrick’s Day Crafts. And… well, I hate to brag (OK, not really) but we had three St. Patrick’s Day posts this week here at Type-A Parent.
Besides St. Patrick’s Day, there were some great topics covered this week on everything from moms and iPhone guilt (I have no idea what this is in reference to) to Endometriosis Awareness to the 2013 Home and Housewares Show. Some highlights include:
- For some time, I have watched Christina share so openly about her own issues with mental health and Aspergers. I know she must help countless people with her frank discussion. This week, she blogged about the stigma of mental illness and prescription drugs.
- I love seeing parents use social media powers for good. Jessica at Found the Marbles encourages readers to participate in Global World Relay, which is 60 days of online conversations geared at raising awareness and funds to improve the health and well-being of mothers and children worldwide.
- Mom bloggers prickled at being accused of being bad mothers because of their iPhones. Heather posted at Babble about eight ways her iPhone makes her a better mom, and Megan at Fried Okra proclaims that iPhone moms should carry on!
- Jamee at a New Kind of Normal discusses the long-term effects of living with Endometriosis (including a blog linkup).
- Dave Taylor of GoFatherhood shared about his son’s first razor.
- Megan of Velveteen Mind shared 14 steps to A+ homework habits at Babble Voices.
- Lisa from My Thoughts, Ideas and Ramblings shares some sweet finds from the 2013 Home and Housewares Show.
- Sherry Pardy encourages bloggers to love your haters, hug them and call them George.
- Tammy discusses an important topic about her son Parker in her post about when your child can’t communicate.
- Amanda’s post is an important (and scary) read for parents about how her son’s strep throat turned into kidney failure.
And, in closing and in the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day (hey, the toy IS green), I leave you with this awesome picture of Casey of Moosh in Indy’s cat. Because it’s a funny cat picture and you can find a bunch more in her post.
