See this little button on the right? It means I'm experimenting. No, nothing kinky and nothing crazy. I'm participating in a "blog party" through 5 Minutes for Mom. At first I was concerned. I'm not a typical mom. I have an acerbic tongue, kooky sense of humor, and might not appeal to most mainstreamy moms, but then I found other moms like me on the site listed under "Not So Family Friendly". Awesome. That's me.
My blog is, for anyone McLinky-ing from the blog party, devoted to the books I am reading. I like to write essays and creative non-fiction and to prepare for my next adventure - my MFA in writing, beginning this summer on a 10-day residency in, I kid not, Buenos Aires, I am reading a bunch of creative nonfiction and sharing my impressions.
I have two kids, Fiona is six and Toby is three. They wear me out, but as the mom in Ian Falconer's Olivia tells her daughter, I love them anyway.
This is my third English degree, so clearly I'm insane (and desperately want to publish!).
