I have just finished reading and *thoroughly* enjoyed your book, "Because I Said So"! As the mother of two, I have experienced almost everything in that book so I feel a sense of sisterhood with you, girl! Thank you for telling it like is really is and not sugar-coating...As a writer myself, I just started a blog called MOTHER TONGUE & Other Sharp Objects...I thought of you yesterday when a strange woman attacked me (I still haven't quite figured out her rant) and I thought, "I bet Dawn Meehan gets this sort of garbage frequently enough to wonder what the heck is wrong with some people with whom we share this world. It's humor, people!"I would love to hear what your M.O. is with strange people, especially moms, who feel the need to act like this...
Thank you for your kind words and best of luck to you in getting your ms sold! As far as the people who sling mud my way - well, I used to cry when I got negative comments.

Uhhh, yeah. Clearly, you don't have boys in sports. And because
I dreamt I rented a banana costume once for Halloween. What does that mean?
That's crazy. They must have been all out of the monkey costumes.

Just the usual - a handful of Tums
What is The Neverending Song? Wait, do I really wanna know?
It's too late. You asked. Here ya go...
I can send a card from Hawaii! Where do I send it? Did you post an address?
Oooo! Better yet, how about I come pick it up? I'd be willing to do that, you know. For Savannah, of course. I'd go to Hawaii just for Savannah. But if you insist on putting it in the mail, you can send it here.

What is the picture showing exactly? And yeay for absorbable screws and pins! Glad everything went well..
I have no idea. The doctor gave us sixteen pictures. I can't remember what they each showed.
Is that really a pic of her knee?? It looks so much like those 4D ultrasound of a baby... with eyes, nose a mouth..

Amy, tell me you have a picture of your bubble-wrapped son!
