An avid reader, I majored in English Language and Literature at Benedictine University.  Reading and writing are my passions and I really enjoy doing what I love for a living.  This is a particularly fun project for me after years of writing about toilet cakes, loose leaf paper and shower seats for seniors.  My favorite authors include Toni Morrison, Steig Larsson, Maya Angelou, Jane Austen, Anne Rice, Ken Follett, all of the Bronte sisters, Isabel Allende, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, and Kahlil Gibran.  I would love to have parents share their favorite books for grown-ups or children on this blog.
My goal with writing a parenting column is to provide a space for parents to find healthy, fun activities to participate in with their children.  I would like to create a community of support and place for us to share life's little joys as well as the common experience of raising children, which as we know is not always hugs and rainbows.  I am NOT a perfect mom, nor do I expect perfection of others.  Feel free to share your good and bad days here, and I will do the same.  Happy parenting to you all!  Let's enjoy these moments while they last.
