The Fun Mom

Hi friends, I've missed you. I've been busy writing that next book you keep asking about and will be back to the blog soon, but in the meantime, here's an old fave I like to re-run when school lets out. Because we all need to remember to lighten up and enjoy the ride. Please share with parents you know who are trying to find the joy in summer break!

Around here, Mom gets a bum rap. Dad is the fun one, doing all the tickling and wrestling and ball-throwing in the house. I’m that shadow in the background sweeping up the shards of the vase they just knocked over.

I even call my husband ‘Daddy Funtime,’ sneering as I say this to fully articulate that this is meant to be a negative connotation.
