I get hit with things, fairly often.
When I was boxing, I’d get hit with gloves and mitts. These days, it’s with high fives from the kids, or the corners of tables when I’m not looking where I’m going.
But sometimes, the hits come in the form of i
deas. At the newspaper, I was laying out the Parents&Kids page, when it hit me: we focus on parenting a lot, but never stepparents.
So I asked my boss if maybe, as a soon-to-be-stepmom, I can write a biweekly column for the page. She said yes! Just in time for Mother’s Day, too.
Me being me, I also needed a logo to go with it (which took a few iterations to get right). And an illustration, too!
And voila, my first column!!! >>> “Three+Me: Disney got it wrong.”
P.S. I kept this post short so anyone reading this might still have enough attention span left to read the actual column in the link above!!! 😇
