The NYMetroParents blogroll features the best blogs in the parenting world, from New York and beyond. Here's a closer look at why we love these mom bloggers and dad bloggers and how they're shaping the web for parenting today.

Blogging from: Brooklyn

Amy Oztan’s daughter Fiona brought home a bowl she made in school. She handed it to her mother with pride. Unfortunately, the bowl that she made was “butt ugly.” Amy contemplates just what to do with the less-than-aesthetically-pleasing creation in a post on her blog, Selfish Mom, titled “When Your Child brings Home Something Fugly.”

This is Amy’s style—relating stories from her life as a wife and mother of two with a dry wit and down-to-earth realism that makes her feel like a close acquaintance right from the get-go. She adores her son Jake and daughter Fiona, but also adores her newfound free time when they go off to summer camp. She has been married for over a decade, but refers to her husband (affectionately, of course) as “The Ass.” There is no sugar-coating here; just an enticingly real narrative that parents can relate to.

In addition to posts about parenting her kids, Amy reviews many different products, events, and restaurants in her entries. She also blogs about recipes; whether they are original creations, or dishes that she has adapted for her own dinner table. This savvy mom produces an equally savvy blog—check it out today when the kids are sleeping. — Kimberly Mollo
