“It would be so nice if something would make sense for a change.”
—Alice in Wonderland, by Lewis Carroll
My husband Max said if three people tell you you should do something, then you probably should. I’ve had at least three friends so generously say that if I had a parenting blog, they’d read it! I like to think it’s because I’m so witty & wise, but it’s probably because I just love tellin’ it like it is. Parenthood has beaten the perfectionist out of me slowly over the last six years, so that has enabled me to admit to all the mistakes I’m making, the challenges I feel unprepared for, & the general lack of housekeeping that I’ve slowly allowed & recently embraced as a part of my everyday eye-rolls. I do hope this blog will entertain & educate & bring together an open-minded community of parents, grandparents, parents-to-be, aunts, uncles, friends of parents, people who love kids, & people who might just want a peek into the madness. Yeah, we’re crazy, but even if you enter the asylum sane, you’d be silly to try to stay that way.
