Last week I went to see Catherine Newman at the Philadelphia Barnes and Noble. She writes a weekly journal ( http://parentcenter.babycenter.com/ben ). I have been reading it for the past 3 years, and although I don't always agree with her, I always enjoy reading what she writes. So I brought Susie along to help with directions, and for moral support, and we got to hear Catherine read excerpts from her new book, and then have her sign a copy. I was so excited-- it was like meeting a celebrity that I admire, but better, because I got to talk to her and ask questions. It was definitely a highlight in my relatively normal life!
