Ultimate Blog Party 2010

The one person I've never met who I know reads my blog is Stephanie. I know she reads because she leaves comments. (Ahem. That was a nudge for the rest of you who do know me and claim to read the blog, but never leave a comment. I thrive on positive reinforcement, people.)

I don't know exactly why Stephanie continues to read my blog given that she's never met me and doesn't know my children and doesn't even live in my state. But I do know how she found me -- the Ultimate Blog Party 2009. So if you've wandered over here from 5 Minutes for Mom's Ultimate Blog Party 2010, I hope you like what you find here and join Stephanie as one of my regular readers. I write about my family, local school board politics, children's books, recipes and meal planning, what to do when your toddler poops in the tub, good music and lots of other random things.

For those of you who don't already know, I have two hilarious children (called Junius and Pippi here), one wonderful husband (generally referred to as "my husband") and two part-time jobs in marketing/ communications/ research. And in case I get bored, there's always the blog to write, the laundry to fold, the friends to visit and The New Yorker to read. But those things don't always happen given that I can't remember the last time I had time to get bored.

Anyway, wander around, make yourself at home, leave a few comments, take some ideas and enjoy the UBP 2010. And for those of you who know me and love me anyway, even without the fancy blog party, thanks for sticking around.


  1. Hi there! visiting from UBP10. Glad to be here. I hope you're having fun!

  2. I always read but obviously don't always comment. My excuse? If I commented on your political posts, the process of commenting and agreeing with you would send my stress level and blood pressure so high that it would likely result in an afternoon of Sesame Street for Linus. My favorite posts though are the book ones b/c we teachers like our books.


  3. I LOVED your toddler poop in the tub post. And I read. Just don't always post - and I even have my own blog and KNOW how fun it is to get comments! Sorry friend...I'll do better :)

  4. Stopping by from the UBP all the way from Germany!!

  5. Hello,
    Here from the UBP. I really enjoyed reading your post. I am now following you, too. Enjoy life.

  6. Lol - is that how I found you? We have some things in common - case in point...the photo of your lil' artist (see comment in post). Happy partying!

  7. Sorry to be so late... I have been reading you for a while now... but I found you from the Deep South Mamas blog... and find you incredibly entertaining. I have a 6 month old son, and reading your adventures makes me envision mine. Heh heh.


But enough about me, let's talk about you. What do you think about me?
