Salty Mama Lists

Saturday Six

Here’s what caught our eye this week…

1. This article our friend Ruth wrote last year for Kveller.com, because she’s absolutely a big deal and an amazing writer, and we are the jerks that called her out on her advent calendar, but we love her and her honesty about raising an inter-faith child.

2. This post from BabyCostsMoney because A.) It features Christine and B.) Darlene is crazy funny and just our kind of Mama. You should totally be following her on Instagram, too.

3. This mug from Amazon, because it speaks to us in the most basic of ways, and speaks all the truth.

4. This Brown Sugar Cookie recipe from Sally’s Baking Addiction, because sometimes you sign up to make three dozen cookies for the homeless and then you forget you ever signed up until the coordinator texts you to arrange pickup and you didn’t buy any ate all of the Christmas cookie ingredients you had purchased but thank GOODNESS you always have the ingredients needed to make these. And they are INCREDIBLE.

5. Playdates with our friends, because they give us LIFE.  We highly recommend you invite all of your friends over immediately, and make everyone a latte, and don’t clean at all, and just relish some girl talk while the kiddos entertain each other steal each other’s crackers and push each other, but at least you got time with your friends and that’s what matters.

6. The Mensch on the Bench, so that people of all faiths can suffer through the insanity of moving a little figure around their house. Happy Hannukah!

  1. Heart you back!
    Omg Babystar spotted that Mensch on the Bench at Target. He was on a really low shelf and she became obsessed with him and the Ask Bubbe doll. I kind of want a Jewish grandma / magic 8 ball too. Maybe I’ll ask Santa.
    PS I couldn’t remember the name of the Bubbe doll so I just googled ‘Target Jewish grandma toy’ and google corrected it to ‘target Jewish grandma oy’. Oh google. Lol light racism.
