Renegade Mothering


 [I did not want to ask Janelle to take a photo with me—lame, I know!].

I have loved Janelle Hanchett for years, feel as if I know her, and today got to meet her in person (and her husband, Mac).

If you have not read her blog (Renegade Mothering), start.

Better yet, get her book, “I’m Just Happy To Be Here.” Honestly , I have only read a few chapters—I know I will have to feel some of my own pain, and with my move and all . . . but I am ready (as I will ever be). Janelle makes me laugh and cry—(how is that for a sophisticated piece of writing? Ha!).

Is anyone honestly writing about the aging process? As honestly as Janelle has written about parenting? Good lord, it is the toughest thing I have faced.
