Sorry for the absence this month. After completing a big editing job, I spent last week planning field trips, coloring and hiding eggs, and designing scavenger hunts. This week the kids were on spring break, so I decided—in addition to having them home all week—that I would paint half the interior of the house. Mission accomplished, but it took me a break from the Internet to get it done. I’ll resume posting weekly in May, but for now, here’s an essay I wrote for Mutha Magazine about what it’s like to be a (fashion) model parent. I hope you enjoy it!
