Remember my last post? In it, I talked about Emma Kwasnica, how awesome she is, how she was “mominated” for an award by babble.com. Turns out babble.com has lots of formula ads. So, the money that Emma would have won, had she won, would have been, in part, funded by formula “blood money.” When Emma found out about this, she decided to take a stand and retract her “momination,” even though she was in the top ten and a solid contender for the win. So the links to her babble.com “momination” in my previous post don’t work anymore.
Ph.D. in Parenting wrote an excellent piece about this. Go read it. Jodine Chase, the fabulous woman who “mominated” Emma Kwasnica in the first place, also wrote about it from her perspective. The consensus all around is that Emma’s actions solidify why it is we love her: she lives her principles. We salute you, Emma Kwasnica! Keep being awesome.
