If you are feeling nerded-out by all this tax talk, here is a little antidote:
The Birds and Bees Talk Too Soon? I told my 5-year-old how babies are made, an essay of mine that Babble published last week.
Being featured by my favorite parenting web magazine has been one of my dreams, so pardon me if I scream. Ahhhh!
And perhaps an even greater compliment was this spin-off essay from one of Babble’s Strollerderby bloggers, John Cave Osborne: When and How to Discuss the Birds and the Bees? (Remember the book, Where Did I Come From? That’s how I was educated by brave old Dad, but Osborne quotes a passage in his piece that I must have blocked out. Yikes.)
So with this article in Babble, an upcoming piece in Family Times magazine, and a few other exciting projects in the pipeline, I’m definitely moving in the right direction.
Even though I’m not sure if my checks will cover a cart of groceries, maybe there is some truth to that point in Pretty Neat: Get Organized and Let Go of Perfection: people who regularly write down their goals earn nine times as much over their lifetimes as people who don’t.
What do you think? Or more importantly, how did you learn about the birds and the bees?
