Sorry I haven’t posted in a while. Just popping in to say “Hi.”
I’m busy trying to manage my time as it seems I’m transitioning from a stay-at-home mom to a work-from-home mom as I’m writing this book. It’s tricky business. I feel like I’ve landed in the middle of the Mommy Wars. I have now experienced that mixture of guilt and relief when I drop my kids off at school. I’ve always felt that it’s essential for mothers to have something of their own — whether it’s a paid job, a volunteer job or a hobby (like sewing!). But I’ve never understood the need to fight about stay-at-home parenting versus working parenting — there’s no right way, in my opinion. It’s different for every family and we live in a complicated world. Inevitably we all screw it up at some point, don’t we?
And I have lots of pretty flowers around because my friend Laura is taking photos for the book in my turned-upside-down house. But you’ll have to wait until Spring 2011 to see these peonies again.
