The desperate masses have spoken

I was going through the plethora (2) of emails in my inbox when I was struck by the cries for help from my many (3-4 including my parents) loyal (they had nothing better to do) readers. It seems that they are lost in an ever-expanding wasteland of parenting without my oh-so-knowledgeable Parenting 101 tips. Read on as I post an actual (Hey, it could happen) email I received from one of you.


Dear Wendy, Keeper of all Knowledge and Be-all End-all of Parenting Greatness,

I was thrilled when you started doing your Parenting 101 posts. I was dying of thirst in a never-ending desert of parenthood and you, yes you, were the oasis that saved my life and made me whole again. Your wisdom and guidance have changed my life and the life of my children. But it has been a while since you've shared your vast wisdom and experience with us and times are getting desperate. Please, please impart more of your bounty upon us before our children become the latest subject on America's Most Wanted. Help us, Wendy, you're our only hope.

Signed,
A Devoted Fan



Well devoted fan, fear not. There will be more Parenting 101 posts. I will share more of my amazing intellect with you, but I must do it in small portions so as to not overextend the reaches of your piddly understanding. Help will be with you soon. Clearly, my generosity knows no bounds.

Hahaha, nice.

I especially liked: "Please, please impart more of your bounty upon us before our children become the latest subject on America's Most Wanted. Help us, Wendy, you're our only hope."

First of all, you said 'bounty', which is always funny, and then you threw in a Star Wars quote, which is always awesome.

Good stuff.

You are too kind. But what do I do with my kids in the meantime?

I have nothing to say in this comment because Rick Astley just scared the crap out of me and I forgot what I was going to say. Darn you, Rickroll!

Perhaps you can dedicate a day to offer parenting tips???

I know you already share so much, but you do have a calling and a need from your bloggers and emailers apparently!

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

You've written 101 parenting posts? Wow.. That's impressive.

Somewhere in there I'm sure you've even accidentally said something useful!

Oh, thank heaven, my email got through! I was afraid that I had hit the wrong button with the children climbing on me to cut in some bangs while the dog climbed onto the table to eat their breakfast and my coffee pot burned onto the heating element.


Nah, not really. That was a long time ago. But looking forward to some parenting 101 tips...my piddly understanding is thirsting for this bounty.
