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.
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.
