Neato!

I'm #3 on THIS site. How cool is that? Thanks to Manuela for pointing out that site and this adoption magazine that also references my site. I'm very flattered to be in the same company as Manuela and the other bloggers listed as they are my heros! So... what shall our next debate be? How about.... I'm pissed off because on of the local news reporters announced that Angelina Jolie was finally going to have a baby. Um, last time I listened to someone drone on and one about Angelina Jolie it was about her and her two children - she does have two you know you asshat. Yes, I'm aware she is pregnant for the first time but that doesn't mean that her two other children should be forgotten. Sorry - that's a pretty lame subject isn't it? I promise to come up with something more interesting. How about..... Duct tape as a parenting tool.

  1. I don't think its a lame topic. It pisses me off that the media, etc., talk about adoption as a second best option. (Well, now that you've adopted, you'll get PG and other such crap.) Or that a child is searching for their "real" parents. Has anyone ever read the Velveteen Rabbit? "Real" is the love put into parenting, not the genes.

  2. GRRRR.... the Angelina thing... grrr... as much as it is insulting to you as an adoptive mom... it is equally upsetting to me as an adoptee!!

    Even worse... a headline I saw somewhere else... I forget where...
    "Angelina adopts a bump."

    Don't EVEN get me freakin' started!

  3. Second only to "Angelina adopts a bump" is "Angelina and Brad are going to have their first child." Unreal!

  8. Absolutely Dahlink! Oh, and we must do some serious shoe shopping too. I could use another pair of Manolo's (yes, I actually do own a pair - remind me to tell you the story some time).

  10. Ebay my sweet Manuela... Ebay. A fraction of the cost too. I may have to model them after my next pedi for you :)

    Who would have thought I'd turn my blog into a place for shoe porn :)

  11. Frankly, I'm sick of Angelina. And Brad. And Brittney. And whichever other "star" is pregnant.

    So much trash being written in the world. You'd think that these journalists, who prize themselves on their "objective" intellects, would take a little time to research the subject of adoption and learn how to say things accurately and sensitively.
