Cirque Des Mamans

This circus is for all blogging women who take seriously their roles as nurturers and caregivers - and rock, oh yes, they need to rock. It is not limited to those who have sprouted and grown children in their own bulbous mid-sections, but to those who see themselves as mothers. This can include past, present, and future child-bearers, adoptive (both legal and unofficial) mothers, aunts, friends and others who fill an active and positive role in the life of another person.

Please sign up to join the ring if you fit this description and have a site that, as stated previously - ROCKS. We all like to vent sometimes, but these sites should be largely uplifting and free of excessive bad language and gratuitous sexual content. Basically, there are tons of great web rings out there. If you want to stay in this one, please keep it PG.*

You may also be hilarious, if you so choose.

Join date: August 16, 2006
My husband and I have two babies. They are fifteen months apart. The work load is crazy. When it all gets to be too much, we look at eachother and say sarcastic things like, "Oh, the joys" and "Our lives are so rich and full - are you experiencing the richness and fullness right now?" When things get really bad we say, "You're not going to go out for a pack of cigarettes and never come back are you?" When we're amused by two screaming children we share an imaginary cigarette and select a brand name for the occasion. Right before having two children, we traveled in SE Asia, Nepal, India, Africa, Central & South American for 16 months. Our lives are different now. Filled with joys... OH, THE JOYS! Seriously.
