Is it summer yet? Summer is always a tough time to get things done, especially for parents. Of course, my kids are teens, so I really don’t have any excuses. What I do have are book projects, house projects, vacation plans, and of course there’s always the unexpected. Like lawn mowing. I know, I know. You’re thinking: lawn mowing is not unexpected. But I had this conversation last week with Teen Boy:
Me: The lawn needs mowing again.
Me: Nah? What does that mean? I need you to mow.
Him: Why? It’ll just grow back.
See what I mean: unexpected stuff. Like the lawn growing back. Who knew?
Meanwhile, in book news, you can still get your copy of The Rabbit Who Wants to Go to Harvard, the parody of the mega-bestseller The Rabbit Who Wants to Fall Asleep.
Our parody is for the mom and dad who want more for their kid than sleep. You can click the cover for buying information, or go here to find out more, including a FAQ with my co-author, Zeldar the Great. (Warning: he’s not quite ready for prime time.) You can also read an excerpt here. The book’s been doing great and getting fun reviews, including this one in the Guardian.
If you’re here for my parenting memoir, Battle Hymn of the Tiger Daughter, you can find out more if you click the link.
As always, please click on the social media icons on the top of this page to keep in touch on facebook and twitter. Or sign up for my newsletter. I promise to send one eventually. Maybe even this year.
There’s more exciting news on the horizon, so come back soon.
Thanks for stopping by!
