Well folks, between my son’s exciting ER adventure, my 40th birthday (!) and a technical glitch, posting has slowed to a trickle around here. Now that the keel is even (well, as even as it’s gonna get), many of us are heading out of town for Thanksgiving. So rather than rush to make up for […]

Now! On Momversation! Asha shares her angst over Thanksgiving travel planning. We had fun with this one. Here’s who’s talking: Rebecca Woolf of Girl’s Gone Child Maggie Mason of Mighty Girl Mindy Roberts of The Mommy Blog Lots more Momversation fun to be had: I love you, but I hate your politics! Are online friends […]
Hm. I got a new computer over the weekend, and now I’m having trouble posting. Stay tuned…it’s probably some silly thing I’m overlooking.
Katy Lee’s (Adventures in Parenting) idea is less a hack than a holiday handmade project and gift idea in one: My teenage daughter used a gingerbread man cookie cutter, decorated them to look like her friends, and gave them to her friends for Christmas.
