So many commas

The commas drive me INSANE.  I've seriously never seen comma abuse like that before.  

It takes a real effort to use so many commas. I've thought about sending her a nice note about it because I get the sense she wants to make her blog bigger and the commas make it unreadable. However, based on what some other posters have said she's probably not receptive to constructive criticism.

That fact that she was an elementary school teacher and still abuses the comma makes me crazy!!  Didn't she teach kids hows to use the comma properly???  I sure did when I taught elementary school!

Also, I knew one of her sisters in college and they definitely come from PLENTY of money.  Never met Ashley, but they sister was genuinely sweet and fun!

How did I not know she was an elementary school teacher? That makes the comma abuse way worse!

I have to admit, I am dying to know her kids' names. My SIL also reads SSP and she said she saw L's name in a picture once (I guess she forgot to blur it out) so I know what his name is, but not the others.

I know all of them (very southern, obvi) but since she keeps it private I'm not sure if it's appropriate to post them. What do y'all think? Not trying to be obnoxious but not trying to majorly invade her privacy more than she shares…? idontknow

Thank you for clearing that up! I seriously could not figure out how her husband's salary allowed her to spend (seemingly) hundreds and hundreds of dollars every month on clothes/bags/jewelry.

Her dad is a physician. Do they also have family money on top of that?

I don't know whether or not it's appropriate but I sure am curious!

Does a physician really make enough to fund that many daughters and grandkids?

I just checked out her blog for the first time. I can't get over her carseat misuse, lazy parenting at it's finest.

What I find really odd is she seems to read a lot of "younger" blogs. I would think that as a mom of 4 she wouldn't have as much in common with The College Prepster. Well, besides the obvious label whoring.

Her blog title today is:  Wherabouts and Computer Whoas

Whoas?  I think you mean woes. Bless your heart.  

Are we sure she was a teacher?

Yep. She posts a ton of pics on Instagram with her kids wearing thick puffy coats in their seats and barely strapped in.

I wouldn't think so, that's why I was wondering if there was family money.

Thank you! I sometimes think I am the only one who notices puffy coat carseat photos-I see it on multiple mom blog instagram photos (not just Sweet Southern Prep). I think a lot of people have no clue that it is not safe. I have told family and close friends before and they always get defensive and say I don't know what it's like since I live somewhere warm.

Overall I really do like SSP and she seems like a great mom. I like her posts about raising 4 kids close in age, etc. I think I even left a pretty WK comment on the other forum that mentioned her. But I wish more moms would read up about car seat safety.
