Hundreds of thousands of readers. Over 500 comments. Fan mail. Blog entries about me. Well, I certainly didn't expect all that, as I sat writing my opinion piece for AOL's ParentDish. The verdict was mixed: I'm either a wonderful, supportive, wise parent.... or I am decidedly not. I think the "nots" have it in terms of numbers. But oh the heartfelt comments -- and personal letters -- from the people who support me and Annie in this!
And in a wonderfully synchronous moment, my newest Solo column is up at Literary Mama. And it's about performance, and privacy, and living a semi-public life.
Enjoy the reads! Meanwhile, I'm off to a barbeque. Mmm.
