Top Tweets of the Week (Monday, February 25)
Did you watch the Oscars last night? I didn’t, and I have to be honest, I’m not that sad — based on your tweets it doesn’t seem like I missed much. So please excuse the fact that this post-Oscar edition of Tweet Beat is light on actual Oscar-tweets…it’s just that everything else you have to say is so much more interesting than a bunch of celebs dressed up in fashion “dos” and “don’ts”! This week we’re focusing on a lot of blog posts (along with the usual hilarious/adorable/perfect one-liners) because sometimes it takes more than 140 characters to say what you’ve gotta say.

A beautiful reminder that we could all stand to listen to a bit more — live in the moment!
From a daddy’s perspective…it’s OK to let your kid daydream.: George Carlin wrote about “parents who enroll you… fb.me/1XMicvsH1

And another beautiful blog post, this one about daydreaming. Living in the moment and giving kids (and grownups!) time to use their brains organically? I’m so into these words.

Does this post resonate with you? I have a feeling a lot of humans can relate to diet being a four letter word.

Congrats to Holly for joining the baking club! This post made me want to run home and bake brownies instead of attending all my meetings today!
This morning’s emails-from list: a cake artist, a cookie printer, a belly dancer, and @nymetroparents. Reminders of why this business rocks.
— Linda’s Partymakers (@LKPartymakers) February 22, 2013
This business does indeed rock — my inbox often looks very similar! Including emails from NYMetroParents, because yes I send myself reminder emails at work. What of it?!
Someday I might look back and smile at the memory of my 5 year old waking up at 6am because he’s excited to wear a hat. Today? *groan*

BUT THIS IS SO CUTE! Look back at the memory today and smile — it’s been a whole 3 days, right?!
