Catherine Connors is a mother, writer and recovering academic who traded the lecture hall for the playroom and discovered that university students and preschoolers have much the same attention span. She still dips her toes into academic waters by writing the occasional scholarly article about the place of motherhood in Western philosophy, but mostly now she changes diapers and wipes noses and indulges in long reflections on whether Yo Gabba Gabba is a harbinger of the decline of western civilization. Oh, and she blogs: in addition to Bad Mother blogging at BeliefNet, she is, among other things, the author of HerBadMother.com, Managing Editor of MamaPop, moderator of Her Bad Mother’s Basement, co-founder and co-editor of WeCovet, Contributing Editor at BlogHer, and (deep breath) founder of and contributor to Canada Moms Blog. And in her spare time… oh, wait. She doesn’t have spare time. But she’s okay with that.
To get that bad, bad taste out of your mouth, and to help you to purge your souls of the grim evil that is David Hasselhoff – which I take full responsibility for, having foisted it upon you in my last post – I offer this…
Better now? Thought so.
(Yeah, that was really just an excuse to post a big ol’ picture of my crazy adorable baby. I don’t really care all that much if anyone was scarred by exposure to David Hasselhoff singing and flying through the air with a fish in his mouth. In any case, Western civilization’s been declining for a good long while, so our psyches are all pretty toughened up anyway. So I’m pretty sure nobody got hurt.)
