“If Mama Ain’t Happy, Ain’t Nobody Happy”

MamazineI think many of the mainstream parenting-type magazines make fine reads… for my daughter while I’m on the toilet. What toddler doesn’t love to flip through pages of baby pictures and toy ads? But when I’m looking for something to challenge my slowly deteriorating mom brain, I head right over to mamazine.com. Co-founders Amy and Sheri have created a feminist publication that speaks to mothers as women, not just parents. Their columns and features address a wide variety of not-so-typical mother mag topics, including (but not limited to) stepmothering, miscarriage, parenting amidst a crisis like Katrina, and ethno-cultural issues. If you want cute lists of how-to’s, this is not the place for you. But if you want real-life parenting experiences from diverse mothers (and those who love them), then hook yourself up.
You can sign up for a free subscription by visiting Mamazine. Although frankly, I’d have been happy to pay for it. -Kristen

    dear wife

    Thanks for this link. Another good one for the thinking mom, with good articles is Brainchild. You probably already know about it, but I thought I would mention it.
