    Ok, it’s not in my character to normally rain on someone’s parade. But I have to here. Seriously? You’re posting a pick related to marriage/anniversaries? If you want to do so in the future, perhaps consider creating or some other moniker where you can also expand your ‘picks’ empire. But in the modern century where the MAJORITY of mom’s are single or divorced or soon about to be (please look again at the divorce rate), it’s not realistic for you to think that your readership identifies with you on this topic. I’m sure most won’t even take the time to put you in your place on this one… there’s a lot to do and complaining to a blog isn’t high on most mommy lists. When you post NYC events constantly or recommend $800 strollers, I roll my eyes and move on because I love the rest of your picks. But you’re kind of crossing some lines here for me. I’m a single mom by choice and I’m not bitter or sad about it. I just wish the minority married and blissful mommies out there would start looking around at the real map of parenthood. It’s not necessarily what you see in the mirror every morning. And I think you’d amplify your power if you attempted to keep your picks personal but also still on topic.

    Cool Mom Picks

    Halley’s Mommy, Thanks for your passionate comment.

    If we tried to be all things to all people in every single post, I’m afraid we’d fail terribly. So what we do is look for all kinds of cool picks for all kinds of parents. Young and old, city and suburban, frugal and spendy, Hanukkah revelers and Christmas revelers. We would no sooner neglect homeschooling moms, parents who adopt, or same sex couples, simply because they are not the “majority.”

    Every mom is valid in our world!

    That said, the fact that some of our readers are indeed married and celebrate wedding anniversaries and might like this clever card created by a mom, does not diminish, in any way, all the amazing things you and our other single mom readers do every single day. -Liz
