Here are my favorite blog posts of the week. Send me your favorite posts in the comments or on the lifewithRoozle facebook page.

On Parenting:
This week Kristen Howerton wrote a powerful post asking parents to teach their own kids about adoption so she doesn’t have to. She writes about how her son was cornered in the playground and she had to intervene, assuring the other children that she is the child’s real mother. This is a wonderful post, reminding me of my own false concepts of adoption as a child after watching Annie a few too many hundred times. You can read the full post here:

Storytelling:
I’ve recently discovered Laurie White and her blog, LaurieWrites.com, through twitter. This week she posted about an experience she had at a concert and learning how to use her words. This post is well written and reminds us to stop and just tell a story once in a while. You can read the whole story here:
