This is a really fun-to-read, inspiring bunch of blog posts. Ronnie has most of them linked in the comments at her post at Blog of the Zombie Princess.
Inspired by Flo's delicious post here. It's an impromptu blog carnival! Join in!
I'm that mom who drives 500 miles because her kids want to see their friends, because her kids don't feel like riding the train again, because her kids want to go now instead of in a couple of weeks when the trip could be combined with another trip. I'm that mom who knows it's a frivolous, indulgent, even "stupid" thing to do but does it anyway.
