They Like Me. They Really Really Like Me

Well, since I am suffering from low self-esteem right now I am going to share some good news and maybe that will make me feel better (haha, I'm half kidding). But anyway, I submitted a more polished version of this blog post to Central Penn Parent Magazine and I received an email earlier this week that they would love (and yes, she said "love") to publish it with a family picture in their December edition. I cannot tell you how it makes my little heart go pitter-pat to see something that I have written being published. On paper.

Because when I was younger I basically spent most of my days:

1. Reading
2. Writing
3. Talking

And, now that I am grown up I still spend a good bit of time on those things. Now, don't get me wrong...I'm not quitting my day job to apply to be a journalist for National Geographic or anything; however, I may prayerfully consider from time to time sharing the deep and academically stimulating topics that I frequently discuss on this know like soccer, motherhood angst and cleaning up dog vomit. What magazine editor could pass on those offerings?

So, pick up the December issue at a doctor's office or hair salon near you (but, remember to sanitize from the elbows down after touching it since you have no idea who touched it before you) and check it out...and, remember you heard it here first!

Congrats! I'm so happy for you. I remember reading that and thinking it would be a good fit for a parenting mag. I'm glad you had the guts to send it. You rock.

That's awesome! I can't wait to see someone I know in print. Can I get your autograph now before I have to knock down the body guards to get it?

There is usually a stack of Central Penn Parent at the pager desk at church. No need to risk a deadly illness to read it at the dr. office.

Yay!! I too want an autographed addition. I will hang it next to your Movie Poster when it comes out and wins the international movie festival award! Such a famous cool person right in our own backyard!
