Weekly Local Perspectives Round Up: Help Out the Editor Edition

Let me be clear – I DO realize that our Local Perspectives bloggers don’t write with me in mind. They write about what moves and inspires them, but this week I can’t help but feel like a few of them were feeling my vibes and writing posts to help me navigate the sometimes tumultuous and exhausting world of parenting.

Let’s kick off with a few of the posts that saved my bacon this week (not only from the tantrums, but from continuing to wear my dark brown eyeshadow – thanks, Allison)…and don’t worry, if you happen to be one of those people who has enjoyed a marvelous week, there’s plenty here for you too. 🙂
