So this next mother? She is BAD. I mean bad mutha, like shut yo mouth. Please put your hands together and welcome Molly of Mollytopia. She is a lovely Southern magnolia, so let us clutch our pearls in her general direction.
I started reading Molly’s blog before Blogher because who could resist a writer whose bio includes these lines:I was raised by circus performers, hippies, and drug smugglers. I work full-time as a senior finance person for a TV network because being a divorced mom is suuuper easy and I like to keep things interesting.
Then what do you know….I was sitting there at Blogher waiting for a session to begin, swapping cards and networking when Molly herself joined our table. I recognized her sassy logo and squealed, “I READ YOU!” Then she said, “I READ YOU!” and we hugged like a couple of sorority girls on Bid Day.
Molly’s post “Showroom Showdown” about being a single mom and wanting to give the right things to her daughter really struck a chord with me. And if you have time to read more, I highly recommend “Death of a Superhero,” about her father’s last days. Oh, hell, it’s Friday….read her whole site and thank me later!
