Top Tweets of the Week (Monday, January 14)
Today’s Tweet Beat is all about feelings about Mondays, adorable things little kids say and do, new projects and new opportunities, and French Macaroons. I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling good about this week already!
It’s kind of sad how much I love Mondays. Love it when both kids are in school, and I get to do the work that I love more than parenting.

Personally I kind of love Mondays also — the routine is soothing and my work is rewarding. Any other parents feel relieved when the traditional work week begins again?

Based on my statement above, I believe our editorial director is just doing her part to make the world a happier and funnier place.
My kid is wearing a Cinderella dress out to dinner. With Crocs. Quite the look for a Friday night. — sarahdessen (@sarahdessen) January 11, 2013
Okay I also support looking to kids for fashion decisions. Why can’t I wear a Cinderella dress out to dinner with Crocs? That sounds like excellent Friday attire.
Why won’t anyone buy me a box of French Macaroons and deliver them to me right now? — Tracy (@nystoopmama) January 11, 2013
I would say I have this thought approximately once a day, if not more. If you ever find someone to deliver, please pass on our office’s address!
