It wasn't our first two trips to visit colleges (University of Kentucky and Otterbein). It wasn't the annual Powder Puff Football Game. It wasn't Thanksgiving. It wasn't even finding a pair of jeans that fit. Okay, all of those things were exciting (especially the jeans part). But, here's what I'm talking about ...
My new book Lovin' the Alien has been published. And, I'm thrilled! (Can you tell?)
Lovin’ the Alien, like the blog it's named after, is a humorous look at mothering. In this first book, I focus on those unearthly creatures we call “tweens,” drawing on true tales from the days when my daughter was in middle school. Tweens may appear vaguely humanoid, but they have their own language, culture, rituals, eating habits. They are a distinct and separate race whose ways are ... well ... not ours.
Essays cover topics ranging from “School Daze,” “Attitude Adjustments” and “Shop, Shop, Shopping Around,” to “Living in a Digital World,” “Our Daughters, Ourselves” and “Culture (or Lack Thereof).”
Lovin' the Alien is the perfect gift for any parents (new or not so new), grandparents, teachers, coaches, or scout leaders on your holiday shopping list.
Or, enjoy it as a special treat if you’re in this particular ... um ... otherworldly situation yourself.
