or the parents with kids ages five and up.
For all my griping about my babies no longer being babies, there is one upside to having not-so-little kids: S L E E P (can I get an amen?) A teensy bit more time to myself is a close second. I’m not talking much more than the occasional unaccompanied shower, or two hour solo shopping trip, but after ten years all in a row of nursing babies nonstop and often being pregnant during that stretch, having no children younger than five has its advantages. I really do miss having access to a baby’s head though; nothing smells better.
But I am not posting to be all sentimental about the baby days, I’m posting to pimp a book. A book that I have a small part in, that is coming soon to a retailer near you. I am beyond flattered to be included in this anthology; because seriously? look at this list of amazing writers:
- Birdie’s New Mexico Time Machine
- Friday Playdate
- Laid-Off Dad
- Mommy Needs Coffee
- Mommy Track’d blogger Risa Green
- Motherhood Uncensored
- Paper Napkin
- Rancid Raves
- Redbook editor Stacy Morrison
- State of Grace
- The Modernity Ward
- Three Kid Circus
- Woulda Coulda Shoulda
Rita did an incredible job of tirelessly working to make this happen. Thanks, Rita!
although i’ve never nursed a baby to sleep via my hooter, i have fallen asleep in the gutter during my rock n’ roll days. i never missed the smell of bar garbage, call me weird.
