Wow, must be something in the air. Or water. This week’s featured submissions were locked and loaded long before the Republican debacles, but I love the fact that we’re all vibing as one.
In Deska Brown’s Worried Days we get up close and personal with one mother’s experience with her child’s chronic illnesses. “I make the appointment with the Dr. and the countdown begins,” she says, letting us understand at once that this isn’t new, but that doesn’t make it any less dreadful.
But it’s not just about the kids. Not exactly.
Andi Fasimpaur gives us an honest glimpse of the loneliness that can accompany parenthood. “Efforts to get your kids on the same soccer teams don’t really count as enduring friendship,” she writes in Stalker Mom. Interestingly, her profile lists The Story of O as her favorite book. Andi, I’m thinking you have more stories for us.
Meanwhile, I’m making do with you know who.
Oh, how we would love to get a story from the convention. So long as it was truthful, like the delegate who responded to a Daily Show question about the president with a blank stare.
