I write regularly for Parenting New Hampshire magazine. Not only do I contribute articles, but I also have a monthly column on Family Finances (how to be thrifty – something that with 6 kids, I feel I’m qualified to talk about.)
Anyway, because of a retrospective article I had written about a cover shoot my kids were on 11 years ago, the editor had asked me if I could pose with a few of my kids for a new cover. Sure, I said, how about chicks with chicks.
I’m not sure she realized that when I said this I really meant chicks, with chicks, with chicks (kind of like Chicken-inception) but she was a good sport about it and when she and the photographer showed up, the girls and I grabbed some chickens and got ready for our close-ups. The end product turned out just fine and the girls and I are pleased as punch to be sharing the world of chickens once again.
The online copy of the magazine is here. I have 3 articles in this issue (it just worked out that way) if you want to take a look.
And to the woman at the soccer game this weekend – next week I’ll bring a sharpie so that I can sign your copy of the magazine, but trust me, a “celebrity” I am not, I’m just a mom paying attention to the lessons we can learn from the flock.
