Let's clear the air

I know that some of you think I'm totally judgmental. But honestly, I don't care that much about the choices that other parents make. I know that no choice is made in a vacuum and each family makes trade-offs based on what works best for them. Cloth versus disposable? Boob versus bottle? To snip or not to snip (although I do have a hard time not judging people who cut their kids for cosmetic reasons). Preschool at two or four? How long your keep your kid in diapers?

I'm far from perfect. And I don't like admitting I'm wrong--just as Father in Chief. The stuff I write here is the real me. The stuff I write elsewhere is in the spirit of entertainment and debate. And at times I have triggered some really interesting and thought-provoking comments, which makes it all worth while. That doesn't mean what I write elsewhere isn't me or my thoughts. Really, they are all my thoughts and my opinions--just amplified to the extreme. Don't take it personally, okay? It's in the spirit of fun...and it pays some bills.


  1. hee, hee. I know it isn't funny at all when people are taking stabs at you--but really? People are getting all upset with you *personally* over your various other writing projects.

    Hang in there... at least they are reading! :-)

  2. Dang, the comments on the Oh Baby thread aren't showing up... I wanted to see what was said!

    I love the way you write and the subjects you cover resonate with me. I'm glad you've found a paying outlet for your talent, even if it's not the total break from parenting that you need.

  3. I know, I know... Typepad totally puked out and everything crashed yesterday for anyone using Typepad. Hopefully they'll restore all the links soon so that we can relive the good times again and again ;-)

  4. Hi Suzanne, Meghan from mommybloggers here. Would you e mail me about a feature we are posting on Mary Tsao? Thanks!
