Permission to opt out, dear readers! I've been writing a bunch of posts for the Fisher Price website (and social sites). You can click through to all of them here. But this one ("10 New Year's Parenting Rationalizations") is my favorite at the moment. Here's how the pitch to my editor went:
Her: Got any great ideas for New Year's themed stories?
Me: Like New Year's resolutions?
Her: Sure, resolutions, yes!
Me: Sorry, I really don't believe in those suckers. You know what I DO believe in? Rationalizations.
Her: I'm sold.
