Welcome to the very first Carnival of Housewives, and a big thank you to everyone who submitted a blog post (even though it may have escaped me at first).
This month’s Carnival of Housewives is being held here at The Zen Housewife, and I’m hoping that others will take up the challenge and host the carnival at their blogs in future months. If you would like to host Carnival of Housewives at your blog, please contact me at carnivalofhousewives[at]googlemail[dot]com.
Our first submission is the wonderful tongue-in-cheek post about Jon Swift’s mother entitled My Mother is a Terrible Person. It never ceases to amaze me how some women manage to do so much. Jon Swift is not himself a housewife, but I thought that this post deserved a spot on the carnival as it was in honour of someone who was not only a housewife, but by all accounts a great parent, and women’s rights activist.
Millennium Mom gives us her Top 10 reasons to be a WAHM.
Daddy Dialectic brings us Stay-at-home parenting: a privileged debate? There’s a lot of interesting discussion been stirred up by this blog post.
And from intellectual debate, we get down and dirty with the basics of parenthood at vbacadventure where Kendra tells us of her Failure to Escape the Stretch Mark Curse.
Sara gets creative with nature at HowToMe with her post on How to Make a Rustic Curtain Rod. The project looks great, and it cost her not a penny!
Mark Cutler Design offers some advice on What Makes Upholstery Good. Just the thing to read if you’re about to go out and buy a new sofa.
Ah! The “To Do” list. What would we homemakers do without it? Trouble is, Madeleine Begun Kane has lost hers.
Educating our children is probably one of the biggest responsibilities of a parent. Whether we homeschool or send them to school, our children’s education is something that requires much thought, attention and lots of our participation. Mom Is Teaching explains How to keep homeschool kids busy.
Over at Everyone Needs Therapy, Therapy Doc is discussing graduation events in her post entitled Commencement.
Megan Bayliss at Imaginif… explains how her scrubbing brush came out of retirement in the name of education in her post Brush up on Good Touch/Bad Touch.
And last but definitely not least, we head out into the garden with Debra Moorhead, who tells us what gardening has taught her about life. This was a post that I could really identify with, being a keen gardener. Thanks Debra!
And so we’ve come to the end of this month’s Carnival of Housewives. Thanks to everyone who participated, and please do let me know if you would like to sign up to host the carnival in the coming months. The next edition of Carnival of Housewives will be on the 2nd of July 2007. Last date for submissions is 28th June 2007. Email your submissions to carnivalofhousewives[at]googlemail[dot]com or submit them at the Blog Carnival website.
