Julie's Mama Manifesto

Friday, November 12, 2004
The ever-eloquent Julie of a little pregnant has issued a "mama manifesto" -- a written promise to her unborn child that spells out all the things she will and will not do as a mother. The great thing about blogging this is that Julie can always come back and selectively edit her entries if she decides that she is going to go back on one or more of her declarations: for example, if she decides she really is going to feed her child Lunchables in a fit of desperation (e.g., it's the only thing available in the hospital vending machine when she's camped out with her kid in the emergency ward waiting room one night at dinner-time!) If there's one thing I've learned during my own 16 1/2 years in the mommy trenches, it's that there's no hard and fast rule for anything. Still, Julie's rules are terrific and they're definitely worth a read -- at least in the opinion of this card-carrying Julie fan.
