Sisters Are Doin' It For Themselves
The Rice Daddies would like to give a big shout-out and welcome to our sistahs-in-the-struggle [the struggle to raise happy, proud, confident, and self-aware Asian American children in a world that doesn't always deal well with difference, that is], the Kimchi Mamas.
According to their introductory post, this collective of "Korean and married-to-Korean mothers" are, like their namesake food, "a little spicy, plenty fiery, and sometimes? We like to get pickled." [Wait, nobody said your blog's name had to have some deep, symbolic meaning! Um, yeah, rice is...uh, rice is... oh, forget it.]
You'll recognize the names from their solo blogs, which have been enriching the Asian-American-parenting-blogosphere for some time now. [Yeah, I guess we can actually call it that now, since we started this thing three months ago looking for it and now there aren't one but two group blogs written by AsAm parents!] You'll also see that many of them are frequent commenters here on Rice Daddies, which we greatly appreciate, ladies. We're sending the love and props right back atcha.
So go check 'em out—that is, all half-dozen of you readers who aren't actually the Kimchi Mamas themselves. It's a small blogosphere after all....
