The weekly Mothers In the Legal Profession Roundup (MILP) is hosted on a rotating basis on the following blogs: Butterflyfish; Grace; BJJ, Law, and Living; Mommy and the Sin City; Magic Cookie; The Reluctant Grownup; and right here at Perspectives of a Hard Boiled Egg.
This roundup includes posts between Monday, August 4 and Monday, August 11.

And lastly: if you haven’t, go read RG’s touching post about Robin Williams.
