The Mommy Wars Takes Another Shot

I know I'm behind the curve a bit on the mommy wars stuff, but I just got around to reading this brilliant piece on mommy wars, written for Mother's Day. It nicely dismantles the "war" by laying out the similarities between at-home and go-to-work moms, at least from a kid's point of view. This clearly won't end the asinine stories (though they *do* seem to be less frequent since Steiner and Flanagan, etc. forced everyone to think critically about the issue), but it's a nice addition to the anti-war canon.

While I'm catching up, check out MassDad's Evan Hadley, who wrote a nice first-person piece about his experience.

And if you're in need of a laugh, a British newspaper column has targeted a major scourge that you should all be aware of: dad bloggers. Read it and weep. (Thanks to (who gets savaged in the piece) for bringing this to my attention.)
