Happy New Year! Since sharing which 10 posts were the most popular with my readers in 2012, I realized that almost none of my favorite posts made the list! My 10 Books You Must Read to Your Daughter post (viewed almost 200,000 times this year!) came together in an hour. Go figure, right? But some of my posts are the result of days (or weeks) of reflection. Here’s a few posts that really came from my heart and soul this year:

There’s No Paycheck for Motherhood: Finding Value in the Home

“A Dog Could Take Care of Your Child” Or, Why I Quite Grad School to Stay Home with My Kids

3 Daily Rituals to Help Mothers of Littles Stay Sane

Why I Breastfeed in Public: The Blessed Virgin Mary Does It!

    “A dog could take care of your child” is my favorite post of any span of time. I’ve read it multiple times on many occasions and am still outraged, stunned, and saddened by your professors, and by the end practically cheering at your commitment to family.
    Keep it up, Haley. You are a blessing to me.
