In my mailbox today:
Yes, there's a boob wars article and costume ideas, but that's not the part I'm most excited about.
On page 35-- those are I-know-where-it-goes Drawer Stickers! Parenting wrote to me in July asking for "one of every color, and can you get them here by Tuesday?" Ummm-- sure!
I really did my best not to hold my breath. There were a stream of e-mails back and forth, but I wasn't sure they'd actually be included until I got a message from a "fact checker" verifying the info for publication. Even if they hadn't made it in, the thought that they wanted to see them in the first place was totally flattering.
Now that it's a reality I'm going to make myself a big fat button to wear daily that says "as seen in Parenting magazine." The other moms at preschool won't get annoyed with that, will they?
And a special note for my own parents-- Hi Mom and Dad! Don't run out the door yet! This was in my mailbox because I have a subscription. I think you have to wait another week or two to find this on a newsstand.
