Mighty Heart and Book

Two items of news. There's a Mighty Heart update on Crib Notes.

And the Crib Notes Collection is out. Here's an amusing excerpt:

I found myself wandering through the house rethinking my decision to have children. For this I gave up Shiner and ice tea for nine months? I actually volunteered to stay home so I could wrestle with a loud, rude, and completely irrational human being? Yeesh. I could have kept my other job for that and at least gotten dental insurance in the deal.

I'd stare at this screaming banshee at my feet, who was demanding that I make her baby shoes fit her again or bring back the toy she shattered in last week's tantrum and longed to look her straight in the eye and say those two little words: "Day care."

Promise it'll make you laugh at least once. These days, that's gotta be worth a buck. :)

Rode Smokey yesterday, we'll have a joint report tomorrow.

Wating to hear the report on the ride with Smoky. Breathe, can you check out my most recent post and give your opinion?
I would appreciate it.

Very cool! I'll be downloading a copy. I didn't know that you wrote a humor/parenting column for a newspaper. I used to do that when I was a local Parenting Educator. That was back when our community was small and the problems that families had with raising their kids were relatively simple. Now we've got drugs and violence and poverty in the mix.

I just want you to know that I think of you and mighty heart and pray often. I truly hope my prayers make a difference in your family.
