When I am at a loss for a blog topic over on A Separate Life, I have a couple of times written a list of blog prompts (sent to me weekly on an email list) that I won’t be using for ablog post. I have so far managed to hide (I think) my frustration at the number of “you as a parent” suggestions, but don’t feel the need to do so here on No Kidding.
Here is a selection of the “parent” posts I won’t be writing, with my suggestions of an alternative title, creating a suggested post that is so much more inclusive, and that one day I might write:
- Write a poem inspired by the last
conversation you had with
- List 10 things you love about
motherhoodhaving children in your life.
- List 10 things you never knew until
a moman adult/in your 30s/infertile.
- Describe a time
your toddlera child or your pet got into something they shouldn’t have.
- Something you learned from
youra child. (I write this one every time I see my niece Charlie.)
