The Parent du Jour

Today I’m featured on The Parent du Jour, as part of their Once Upon a Mom series. You can read my contribution, which includes a delightful story about pulling dry pasta out of Owen’s eyeball, here. And check out the other parents’ stories on the site, too (including my good friend Brian Klems, of The Life of Dad). The site shows how different—and similar—we, as parents, really are.

Thank you, Lisa and Steve, for the feature and taking the time to put together such a wonderful site.

“It’s not only children who grow. Parents do too. As much as we watch to see what our children do with their lives, they are watching us to see what we do with ours. I can’t tell my children to reach for the sun. All I can do is reach for it, myself.” —Joyce Maynard
