In Praise and Support of Each Other

Friday, October 14th, 2011

Things are hectic around these parts.  Between family, writing and teaching gigs, and micro-blogging on Twitter (from my personal account and for CoParenting101), I don’t post here very much.  But when I do, I try to share some good news and thoughts about my journey.  So I was especially appreciative when Cynthia who blogs at […]

So…El Ex and I received an offer on our co-parenting book!!!!!! Bonus: I was in the car with TechBooHusband on a rare mid-week stay in Maryland when I got the news.

To Shar Jackson and all the women scorned

Monday, March 22nd, 2010

TeeLynn: “Writer. Geek. Mental health advocate. Sarcastic smartypants.” My friend and fellow Yalie, TeeLynn, recently blogged about dealing with the pain of a break up–or not.  What gets on my everlasting nerves are those passive-aggressive folks who, instead of dealing with their hurt and disappointment, hand their emotional baggage to their children to lug around.  […]

"Agent. Contract. Screaming."

Tuesday, January 19th, 2010

Since TechBoo started a new job last fall, he doesn’t have the same access to email and phone that he did in his previous job. So when he texted me to see how my meeting went this morning with the agent who is interested in the co-parenting book that El Ex and I are co-authoring, […]

"On Being Clean"

Thursday, January 15th, 2009

I’d like you to turn your attention to one of my blog-sisters, a fellow AntiRacistParent, and a fellow Yalie: Liana Roxanne Clark.  She is a mom, maintains a wonderful blog, AND is a teen doc and medical director.  Her latest post, “On Being Clean”, advocates for getting rid of the false “dirty/clean” dichotomy when we […]
