Featured In Parents Magazine

The other day the August issue of Parents Magazine came in the mail. I had been waiting for this issue longer than you can imagine. I tossed the Martha Stewart magazine out of the way and started rifling through the Parents issue. I shushed the kids, "Quiet!, I'm looking for something". And then I found it, the craft project I created for the magazine on page 168. "Look", I said to the kids, "my craft project with my name is in the magazine". I show them the picture. And then in a very casual way my son says, "What? Like you've never been in a magazine before?" as if it's some common thing and no big deal. I think to myself "like you have?" but being a good mom, I just smile and say no.

And there you have it, before any kind of ego could possibly form, I had been humbled . . . . . .by an 8 year old.

If you get a chance, please check out the magazine. I created a summer craft for preschool age kids.

You could look at your son's reaction another way. He thinks that you are so amazing that you MUST have been featured in magazines before!
Congratulations!
