Introducing They Say

If you’ve been reading the Parenting Post regularly for any length of time, then you’ve already heard a lot of what the five of us have to say. On Wednesday mornings, we’re going to branch out and start featuring links to other great sites around the internet to bring you a little more of what "they say." They say that children grow up too fast. They say experience is something you don't get until just after you need it. They say that your toddler won’t need to use the potty until you’re running late for gymnastics and she’s all decked out in a unitard.

Each week, I’ll bring you more of what "they say" from the limitless wisdom of the internet.

They say it’s possible to do holiday decorating in a kid-friendly, yet classy and elegant way. I’m sure they would say this after visiting Gabrielle’s home, where spooky is in style this time of year. (Design Mom Part 1, Part 2, Part 3)

They say that carrying a child for 9 months is an incredible bonding experience. Melanie talks about how you feel when that physical closeness suddenly comes to an end. (Don't Try This at Home)

They say a large vocabulary is helpful in communicating well with others. Julie thinks 5 words may be plenty. (Mental Tesserae)

If they say a woman can do anything a man can do, then why do so many people still think the father should be the family boss? (Fussy)

They say that parents have a huge influence over their children. Melodee wonders how much of their personalities come hardwired as she struggles to find common ground with her sons. (Unretouched Photo)

They say that breastfeeding can help you lose weight. They don’t always talk about what happens when you begin attending Weight Watchers meetings again after you wean. (Fluid Pudding)
