Thank goodness there is more to talk about than Rob Ford and Miley this week -- I refuse to give either one of them air time (even though I just did, right there). I found a really cute Etsy video, a delicious quinoa snack (to buy, not make), some amazing gift-wrapping ideas for the holidays, a revealing video and suggestions on how to help people in the Philippines.

There are mom blog conferences to attend, frozen dairy-free treats to eat, muffin tops to buy, funny mom blogs to read and videos to share. I'll start with BlissDom, Canada's national blog conference that SavvyMom is participating in this weekend.

Now that reality is the new fiction/entertainment, I find myself doubting what's true or false. Is everyone on Facebook really that perfect? Are we raising a generation of wimps? Can homegrown videos reach nine million people organically? Is bacon a food or an industry? And for the love of God, will the real James Franco please stand up.

Child-free women caught my attention this week turning my five favourite things into a hipster theme. Single mom, child-free or mother of four, may every woman be content in her decisions and the cards she is dealt. Have a great week.

3. In celebrity news, I read on Babble yesterday that Gwyneth Paltrow has declared her children will be going to high school

It's no surprise that the royal baby tops my list--I will admit to being as excited as anyone when that baby was safely born. But what I can't help but think about is the pressure for Kate to emerge from the hospital and show off baby George, which she and Prince William did so graciously.

The July long weekend is always busy at my house because it's when we get the kids ready for camp. This year they'll be away for six weeks without any parents, homework, city pollution, cell phones, TVs or computers. They are off the grid at camp. I love knowing this.
