Hot Pick - Matching Pink
what's hot this week!!
Bracedlets, made by a NY orthodontist are a combo of last summers craze, silly bandz & braces!  Just in time for camp, these cute bracelets are fun to collect and wear all the way up your daughters arms (sure they will prob be banned back at school but that's months away!) Check them out at their website

and order in multiples since I'm sure they will be all the rage with the 8-12 set who are all in braces these days (that's another story!)

 I know this groundbreaking book, The Feminine Mistake,  is NOT new but I could not put it down!  Leslie Bennetts writes a compelling wake-up call to all mothers (mostly stay-at-home moms) that they owe it to themselves, family & children to keep working after they have kids.  I for one cannot believe how much this kind of logic has not reached the mainstream.  In her book, the Feminine Mistake, she writes:  "It's nice to be at home when your child loses her fourth tooth, but is it worth the price you might pay if your breadwinner dies or divorces you, and you end up losing that home entirely?" The feminists of Bennetts's youth proclaimed that a woman needs a man the way a fish needs a bicycle; Bennetts's point is that bicycles get broken or stolen all the time.
