It's fantastic that you are getting ideas from this piece of writing as well as from our argument made at this time.

Hello, after rewding this remartkable paragraph i am too happy to share my familiarity here with mates.

I'm reading this blog for the first time, and I can't stop reading even though I'm exhausted and want to go to bed.

Funny how you don't consider yourself to have that gene, but as someone with no kids yet... you make it seem realllly easy. Taking care of B while participating in the events and still looking great just seems so natural for you. I can't ever imagine being as good or efficient a mom as you... and now I'm frightened for motherhood!!!

You've been quoted!


Eliminating the art of script from elementary school, would be doing an absolute disservice to our youth. I agree that we should allot more time for children to learn how to become fluent on computers, but at the expense of their own personal voice.
As a woman who worked in the professional world (before I became a stay at home) I know the value of a hand written note, and cannot imagine sending a note to a SVP at another company written in bubble print. It is essential that we know how to read and write in script.
PS love your blog

just wanted to say THANK YOU for turning me on to the gawker recaps of "the real housewives". i was in hysterics!!

I have to read your column if only because it has the best name ever!

Liz rules.

My oldest has learned how to write in cursive. I'm hoping they continue teaching it here. I'd really like my kids to write better than I do.

Our third only child was totally an accident (it's a running joke between The Dad and me).

And now, five years later, I'm pretty well convinced it was a Happy Accident. It's drastically altered more than a few of my life-plans (made after coming to terms with the fact that after twenty years and not having another baby, I had missed the remaining window of opportunity).

I wouldn't trade him for the world, but accidents can definitely shake things up. (LOL.)

I print when I'm writing for work, but a majority of my personal writing is cursive. I journal in cursive, because it matches the flow of my thoughts. I love to write handwritten notes to my friends in cursive, because it really shows that I took some time for them. When I was in 3rd grade (1994) I went to public school for a month (my aunt was a teacher and I had been homeschooled, so it was sort of like a practice run of what school was like). I felt so cool because I had already learned cursive and my classmates hadn't. I guess I do understand why it wouldn't be taught in schools, but it does make me sad.
