Me in the April issue of Chicago Parent (x3)
I wrote 3 stories for this month's Chicago Parent.
First, I wrote about practical tips for raising a lefty. My Dad was a lefty. I am a lefty. Brendan is also left-handed. My Dad always made me feel like being left-handed was special. I am working hard to send my Brendan that same lefty propagandist messages. I thought I would start by writing this story in his (and my Dad's) honor.
I also wrote a piece about the online interactive resources offered by many Chicago-area museums. Can't make it to the Art Institute with the kiddos this month? Check out the site Curious Corner where kids can still have a hands-on learning experience.
And for my craft column, we made spring greeting cards that you can plant. We embedded wildflower seeds into paper note cards. The recipient can plant the card and watch the seeds grow. Perfect for Mother's Day gifts, don't you think?
