Top Tweets of the Week (Monday, March 4)

Hey there, welcome to March! It feels like the new month snuck up on us pretty fast — did February even happen? I have a good feeling about this month though, and you’re all right here with me, churning out 140-character bits of hilarity and wisdom every day. We’re almost at 2,000 followers and we couldn’t be more grateful to all of you for hanging out and chatting with us in the Twitterverse. Here are some of our favorite bits and bites from the past week.

I love this blog post about the value in losing. It’s an important message to teach our kids.

This post is equally important — there is value in losing, but there is also value in continuing to try your best no matter what.

Ohhh, we’re excited for Marty’s next adventure, too! And congrats on sending in the revision.

I’m personally very into family dinner. What do y’all think?

Sarah Dessen’s tweets are always so uplifting and sweet — one of Twitter’s coolest features is allowing you to feel connected to your favorite author’s as people, not just amazing writers!

Who else has done this?! IT IS SO FASCINATING / EMBARRASSING / AWKWARD / PERFECT. Let’s talk about it.

Haha sometimes I like to pretend that because I live on the sixth floor of a building with no elevator, I’m allowed to skip the gym whenever I want. That’s not true. I guess being a mom isn’t a free pass to skip the gym every day either — darn!

Talk about a mom who has fitness on the brain — the FLOTUS has big plans for the kids of America when it comes to health and movement. Let’s hear all about it. And also talk about Pinterest.

The 57th Commission on Status of Women is starting this week. It takes place at the United Nations Headquarters in NYC from March 4-15. Stay up to date by following the #CSW57 hashtag — this is really important stuff.

Happy National Grammar Day, from me to you! Teach your kids an important grammar rule tonight to celebrate.

And with that, we’re barreling into March! Get excited for more sunshine, springtime, and as always, more top tweets of the week. See you next week!

  1. I truly appreciate your site mentioning my article, The Value In Losing, in your list of top tweets for last week! I usually try to promote positive parenting on my site.

    As a former social worker, I think that teaching a child about losing is a parental responsibility. Life isn’t always about what we win but what we can learn from losing.

    Thank you again,

    Aaron Brinker aka Dadblunders.
