My very first really real magazine article!

I've written some lame, lazy posts in my day.  But this one...well, this one is handily going to win the gold medal in the Lameness Olympics (see how I worked the word "Olympics" in there?  Makin' it relevant and all that jazz.  The word relevant, by the way, is super lame.  Another 10 points for me!).

See, once upon a time I wrote a real article and it got published in a real print magazine and they sent me a check for real American dollars in exchange and I was all "Quick!  Cash it before they realize their mistake!"  But then people started asking if they could read said article and I got clever.  Photos of words on a page?  Don't mind if I do.

So, from MomSense Magazine, the quarterly publication of MOPS International, I present to you my very first printed-in-print article evah.















I even got to talk about myself in third person.



Fancy, right?

  17. Yay! I FINALLY got to read it! And sans children pestering me too!!! Awesome article and I just recently had a little moment like that with the girl child. Now, of course because no one is sleeping well, we are back to the eternal power struggle but I will keep that moment in my heart forever.

  24. I read that article then at the end realized it was written by you. I've read your blog a few times, after seeing it linked to by other catholic mom blogs. So impressed that you are involved in MOPS (I got "too busy" once I had 2 kids - let alone 5), & that you are writing for them.
