It’s Not All Mary Poppins

Because I’m Really NOT Busy Enough Yet…

…I’ve started a new venture. Together with another blogger, I have stepped into the waters of … well, kind of what I do here, only more. Less with the funny stories, more with the considered opinions.

What we’re trying to do, Motherapist and I, is to create a forum for constructive interaction. From our Mission Statement:

We recognize that parenting occurs within a larger emotional family system, and issues affecting that system…help to shape interactions between parents and children. Our goal is to create an environment where such issues can be discussed openly to explore how they may influence the way we parent, adversely or otherwise, and provide support and appropriate solutions to one another when necessary.

Open discussion – which, since Mary is involved, will be polite, thankyouverymuch – on issues involving and surrounding parenting. Is this my thing, or what?

Come on over to Partners in Parenting, and make it your place, too!

  11. Hello, everyone! Thank you for the best wishes. We’re having fun with the new blog; I’m percolating another post today, and maybe it’ll be up tomorrow (Wednesday).

    As for the nuptials: Weeellll… It’s more of an idea than a plan, but thanks for the best wishes on those, too. We’ve been together ten years or so now; obviously we have no great sense of urgency…

  13. HOOOORRRAAAY! I am so glad to see this. I will take all the credit because haven’t I been the most consistent voice telling you to get some dividends for all your contributions to the blogourhood.

    well maybe not, but I wish I’d thought of it.

    Right, now I will try to think of some rebroadcasts and expansions of your great playbook material that should get the PiPs cooking even without Gladys Knight!

    once more, yay!
