This is the small town that we all know, where the challenges and delights of raising a family include eccentric opinions, teen angst, warm hospitality, technological distress, career concerns, shifting relationships and community spirit.
And where we muddle through with the support of friends, because when it comes to parenting,
a few advisory warnings are just what we need.
Autumn Leaves & Other Crappy Crafts
Cynthia shares a fun family craft to celebrate the beauty of autumn, although, if Tracy is her family, it may not be so fun after all.
Tracy, Liz and Cynthia would be happy to answer your questions about parenting, school, kids' activities... basic survival, really. Just leave us a message and we'll get back to you as soon as we finish off this bottle of cheap wine.
Hi ladies. Do you have any suggestions for dealing with my 6-year-old who refuses to sleep past 6 am, even on weekends? I'm afraid of the crap he might watch on TV if I don't get up with him.
Hi Kellie. Your 6-year-old would drive me nuts, waking me up four hours too early on a Saturday! I would get a good kids' movie lined up the night before, ready to go in the morning with just one click on the dvd or streaming service. Some cable providers also have blocking services to keep the wee ones away from Debbie Does Dallas. Sweet dreams!
