Dear "Responsible Parents,"
We're in the middle of Prom season and graduation is just around the corner, so I thought the time was ripe for a reminder of What Not To Do on Prom Night and/or Graduation Night. And that is: DO NOT RENT A ROOM AT A HOTEL FOR YOUR KIDS.
The irony: In order to go to the White House for the "Champions of Change for Working Families" event today, I had to do some fancy scheduling with my husband. It happened smack at the hour of school pick-up.
"So if you go to work early, you can swing by and pick up the kids after school and bring them back to your office. And then I can drive out and grab them from your office and then go home to get our science fair stuff. And then if you make sandwiches and leave them on the counter, I can toss those to the kids..."
Gather around, my friends. It's our favorite time of year: bad prom dress season! While we love the girls inside the dresses, we feel it's our duty to guide today's youth in the area of formalwear. The BlogHer editorial team passed around a few pics ... what do YOU think?...more
When my daughter started kindergarten all our dreams came true for her. She attended an amazing school, she had an awesome teacher, and she made some wonderful friends. She was way more outgoing than we thought she'd be. She had absolutely no problems at all (except liking to go socialize in the bathroom too much!).
The summer before first grade was smooth too. We swam almost every day and made lots of memories.
A couple of days ago, BlogHer co-founder and SheKnows Chief Community Officer Lisa Stone broke the news: The President wanted to hear from women about their experiences with money, jobs, and the struggle to get ahead.
And the White House wanted Lisa to moderate that conversation, in a Town Hall Meeting in Charlotte, NC.
