MamaBlogger365 – I Was Fine ‘Til I Started To Sweat, By Joy Rose

Since the kidney transplant that saved my life in 2000, I’ve been on fire to do whatever I can, in whatever time I have left, to empower and celebrate women. This of course is all based on my own dis-empowering experiences as a child and then as a married mother of four. Joy Rose, MediaMom™ writes the first day of every month for MamaBlogger365, raising awareness for the Museum Of Motherhood, through Mamazina Magazine and JoinMama sites. Join her each Wed. at 7pm (EST) on MingleMediaTV for music, commentary & mom culture.

*Dr. Mama*, ‘On Letting Children Be’ – MamaBlogger365

So in some ways I have tried to live up to my youthful vow about what kind of parent I’d be. But the truth of the matter is that I have, many many times, been quite dissatisfied with where my children were at various points, and even now, there are points at which I regret the choices they make. I have found myself, and do find myself, wishing they could be more this or less that; I do find that my identity is quite wrapped in them and their choices. Dr. Amber Kinser writes for the MamaBlogger365 series each Thursday at the Museum Of Motherhood.

MamaBlogger365 – Lazy Women Get Their Way? by Joy Rose

So what is a ‘normal’ part of being a woman, and should we award a special place in society for mothers to be? Why are we so ambivalent about the standing of mothers in our society? Actually, ambivalent might be a gentle term. We’re radically, schizophrenically ambivalent. Mothers grace the covers of our People Magazines, bellies bursting, toddlers in tow; African, English, American, Asian. We use our children like a badge of courage. They are our identity and we are stars in their eyes, just like Angelina Jolie is a star in our eyes. Or is she? Do we despise her like we despise the killer mother in Florida this week who shot her children at point blank range. Joy Rose writes for MamaBlogger365 at Mamazina Magazine, the Heart and Soul Of Women.

MamaBlogger365 – ‘To Be, or Not To Be’ ….A Mother, by Emmily Bristol

Like many girls who came of age in the households of Second Wave feminists, I saw my mother’s copy of Ms. Magazine with the image of Wonder Woman on the cover and thought, “Yep. That’s awesome. I totally want to be Wonder Woman.” I was told I could have it all, even if that’s not exactly what I saw playing out in my own home.
