Rebecca, Erica's post is great and reminds me of this quote from Anne Lamott, which only made sense once I had a baby: "“I used to not be able to work if there were dishes in the sink. Then I had a child and now I can work if there is a corpse in the sink."

The lovely and talented Erica Jamieson guest blogs on The Bird Sisters this week. Erica wrote an incredibly amazing essay for the Mother Writer contest a while back...

Hi All, it's been a while, my novel The Language of Trees was released last month. Anyway, wanted to point you to my new blog post called "Letter to My Daughter", based on Maya Angelou's piece. You can find it on my shewrites page under blogs. Let me know what you think.

Chandra, you are a brave woman! My neighbor homeschools her three boys and I don't know how she does it. I just don't have that kind of patience. I think, really, that I'm just too selfish. I want "me" time!

Jackie, I just read your blog. It is beautiful and so are you. I am so very sorry for your loss. I can't even possibly begin to imagine.

Wow, Jackie. I just found your blog. My oldest son's birthday happens to be today. It sounds like your Jordan touched many people in such a short amount of time. I admire you for celebrating his life!

Just last month, I posted a blog about the "R" word (for the benefit of yet another family member)...and then I hear it this morning on Regis and Kelly. I truely believe most people do not understand how offensive it is, but how many times to we have to say "the word 'Retard' is a slur"?

Chandra, I just read your wonderful piece on "Motherlode." I agree with you that the comments tend to be judgmental. I've briefly fantasized about homeschooling but know that I don't have the right temperament. I do have to admit that reading your comment here before reading the NY Times piece gave me an additional insight about your reasons for choosing to homeschool. Good luck with what sounds like a wonderful fun-filled year for you and your kids.

Thanks everyone for your support.

Nice work, Chandra. I grew up when everybody just went to the local public school; raising our three sons here in rural New Mexico, it was a year-to-year decision -- and a year or two we opted to home school them. It's a loaded topic that has no single answer. Hats off to you for having the courage to try something new (and fun!), and for having the wit and clarity to write about it so well.
