The November 3 Best of the Mommy Bloggers Carnival

I’m thrilled to be the host of A Modern Mother’s “Best of the Mommy Bloggers Carnival”! Every two weeks, a different mommy blogger (like me) collects the “best of” columns from other bloggers for the previous month and shares them with you. (To find out more about the carnival or volunteer to be a host, click HERE.) Following are the terrific submissions I received. Please support your fellow moms by visiting their blogs and commenting on their stories!

  2. Hmmm, no daddies this time. We must try harder!

  3. To "The Dotterel"... Well, it is called The Best of the MOMMY Bloggers Carnival! But if I had received any posts from Daddy Bloggers, I would have included them. We all deserve recognition for the challenging and rewarding job we do as parents!

  4. Thanks so much for your tireless efforts! What a bountiful harvest you've gathered!

  5. Thanks for including me.

  6. Hi Susan - just to say thanks for including my post and for taking the time to put this together. For some inexplicable reason my 18-month-old calls me Daddy, so perhaps I could have a temporary blogging sex change to even up the numbers...

  7. Very nice collection! I would love to host. My blog is VERY new but I would be happy to try. One PROBLEM: My link is broken on this list: http://cheskafaith.blogspot.com

  8. Cheska, it seems to be working fine for me. Maybe there was just a glitch in your Internet connection. Try again and let me know.

  9. Thank you so much for including my post!
