I was very very excited to find out I am the featured blogger over at SITS (or for non initiates, The Secret Is In The Sauce) today. Seriously, VERY excited. I might have screamed a little bit.

If you don't know what SITS is, it's an online community of bloggers who believe that The Secret to success is....support! I've found some great blogs and bloggers thru this group and am very proud to be a member, and also proud to be featured today.

So thanks all you SITStahs for supporting me!!

The SITS gals (and a few guys too) have been invited to read 3 extra-saucy posts of my blog. These are the 3 that were chosen.

A Tale of Peril and Woe

A Lesson and an Admission

I Never Was A Gymnast

But I'd also like to tell you a little about myself. I'm a wife and the mother of a 14 month old son and am busy planning a home birth for my next, due in January. I have some "strange" beliefs like Partial Immunization, not circumsizing without religious reasons, and respecting and submitting to my husband. I think about Zombies way way too much, had a wisdom tooth removed sans anesthesia, get way too philisophical about cleaning, not to mention way too riled up about breastfeeding rights. But mostly Im just like anyone else, trying as hard as I can to get this right.

Happy SITS Day to you. Your brave to do the home birth. I don't think I could have done that with any of my kids. I am not very highly thinking on immunizations. By no means am I knocking your beliefs. I have written several posts on my thoughts. We parents just have to do what we believe is right for our kids. I hope you have a great day.

Stephanie Faris said...

Here from SITS...I'm new to SITS but enjoying these posts.

I'm intrigued by you having a wisdom tooth removed without anesthesia. That had to have been painful. The anesthesia made me really sick, as did the painkillers they gave me afterward, so I ended up just recovering on my own.

Penelope said...

Happy SITS day! Lovely blog, and I agree with you about partial immunizations...we go overboard! on little bodies! (I also liked reading about your family)

Congrats on being the featured blogger, and many continued blessings in your wonderful life :)

Michaela said...

I love see the bloggers I already follow featured on SITS!! You deserve your day in the spotlight - congrats!

Michelle said...

Well, you are my NEW best friend.

I am ALSO due in January, and planning a waterbirth. (My 3 1/2 year old told her grandpa yesterday that she was born in a swimming pool in the bedroom. LOL He laughed and said, yep!)

I don't immunize at all, strong advocate for breastfeeding, even though I have low milk and have to use an SNS and supplement with donor milk, and would not/could not circumcise.

I cannot IMAGINE having a wisdom tooth out without anesthesia though. WHEW!

I look forward to getting to know you today.

Look for plenty of comments from me, cause I'm going to be reading and reading.

Have a wonderful day and keep up your beautiful blog for others like me to enjoy!
