I am always a fan of strong women who lay it all out there. In the blog "Dear Adele", the mommy-dearest author is funny with her extreme sarcasm. Her March 9, 2009 post really hit home since I have always harbored nightmares about the damage I am causing my daughters by allowing them to play with Barbies. I may not be a perfect mother (never, ever have I claimed perfection!), but I figure I have to choose my battles. I can't always win the culture wars as I raise my daughters (and son). Laughing with the author at my need to grow "ethical balls" is somehow cleansing and grounding.
