Sooo…those of you who have been paying attention may have noticed that despite the mention of four fab mamas in the (former) “About” description of this blog, I was not-so-surreptitiously full-on hogging the spotlight. Following a quick check-in with my inspirateurs, I’m biting the fear-of-attention bullet and coming clean. Sort of. From here on, it’s just me.
A bit of history
The blog was born shortly after my daughter’s fourth birthday, the pinnacle (I hope) of her pre-school princess craze. I was flabbergasted by the intransigent, occasionally downright disrespectful insistence on toxic girl froth by some of our loved ones, and needed a place to figure it all out with kindred souls. Cue: Live from the pink wars.
From what I can tell, it was useful and reassuring for a few of us. It certainly allowed me to breathe, and feel less alone. For that, amigas, I thank you forever. You know who you are.
It was also a really good distraction from some other really difficult things in my life, which I blog about elsewhere (email me if you need a URL). It’s still enormously relevant. But it’s not the whole picture.
Now I consolidate.
Wish me luck.
