I'm honored that my favorite online parenting magazine, Mamalode, chose one of my short essays to feature on their wonderful site.
I would love it if you checked it out. You can find it by clicking here: Sometimes I Wonder on Mamalode.
Mamalode.com. It's not me. But it would be cool if it was, right?)
Sometimes I Wonder takes a humorous look at a challenge many of us face: raising children far away from our own families. For me, the biggest challenge I have had raising my two young children has been doing it hundreds of miles away from my own mother and sister. Some days, I let myself wonder what it would be like to do it together...sharing preschool pick-ups, spending afternoons at each other's houses, meeting at McDonald's for lunch, taking turns babysitting...and then I stop. Because that isn't my reality, and I have to focus on the here and now and be grateful for all of the wonderful aspects of my life. But in Sometimes I Wonder, I let myself go there, in a way...
Being on Mamalode makes me feel like I got invited to sit at the cool people table at school [not that I'd know]. I hope you enjoy it as well.
