Musings of a Marfan Mom

Friday Favorites


For those of you new to my blog, every Friday (ok, most) I post links to some posts that I’ve enjoyed reading over the week and encourage all of you to do the same and link up here.

I’ve read Mom 101 for quite awhile, but her post A rivederci, Gino really spoke to me. It’s a beautiful tribute to Gino’s Restaurant, an establishment that shaped her formative years, especially her relationship with her grandfather. It closed last month after 65 years. Check out the entry; it’ll tug your heartstrings.

I just came across Wood Turtle’s blog and will be reading much more frequently now! Wood Turtle writes about islam and feminism. I was introduced to her via her post MILFing it for all its worth. She discusses being sexually harassed by a teenage boy while running in a park and how the incident was kind of turned around on her and what that means about society as a whole. Really fascinating and I definitely agree with her! As the mother of a son, I feel it’s my responsibility to raise him to treat women (and men) with the respect they deserve and not allow him to think that actions like grabbing a woman’s rear end is in any way appropriate.
