My essay for Babble.com on being raised in an anti-TV family and how it backfired for me and my kids. Read "The Truth About Kids and TV."
I attended my first-ever blog conference, Bloggy Boot Camp Baltimore. It was a fun, informative day. Read more about it here.

I may be the longest running mom blogger with the smallest (but NICEST!) following ever. I'd like to change that. Anonymous hate mail? PR spam? Bring it on! Just kidding. What I mean is, I'd like to share my labor of love -- this blog -- with even MORE nice people like you all.
So please nominate me for TheBump.com's Mommy Blog Awards in the Best Baby Journal Blog category! There's some good karma in it for you.
I am now a guest blogger for Momversation! Check out my recent posts, "Give Me a Break" and "Me Time in the Real World."
Just wrapped my May 2009 essay writing class and already 2 students have had their work accepted and/or published! For lots of people, it's the first time they've seen their byline in print and gotten PAID for their writing. Exciting stuff!
If you're interested in the next session of the 6-week e-mail class, which starts Oct. 7, check it out here.
Exciting news, people: I am now a featured guest blogger for TheBump.com! It’s a sister site of TheKnot.com. Remember The Knot? If you were anything like me, you became addicted to the site the minute you got that engagement ring on your finger. I would spend HOURS debating the benefits of bridesmaid dresses, looking for centerpiece ideas, learning new terms like tussy-mussy ... But I digress.
For The Bump, I will be blogging twice a month about the stuff that concerns me now, as a frumpy old wife and mom.
I’m excited and honored to have my essay, “Taking Care,” included in this new anthology!
