Welcome to Lazy Days of Summer

Summer is in full swing. I know this because I keep finding sunflower seeds in the lint filter of my Maytag dryer. While the kids are off school, I’m taking a break from my “Mishegas of Motherhood” column so that I can spend quality time with my family. (okay, I’m laying by the pool). Actually, Jack is getting ready to play baseball in the Maccabi Games in San Francisco, so I plan to collect plenty of material to share with you.

Meanwhile, whenever you have some downtime, entertain your brain and scroll through the archives of my 128 previously published columns that date back to March 2006—there’s “Moms Connect on Facebook,” “Why Every Mom Should Own a Dog,” “My Confession with the Food Network,” “Planning a Dream Bar Mitzvah is a Nightmare,” and “Fasting on Yom Kippur Makes Jews Hungry For More.”

Enjoy your summer, and let’s kibbitz again soon.

“Mishegas of Motherhood” is the creation of Ellie S. Grossman, a St. Louis freelance writer and stay-at-home-mom who never stays home. Let me know what you are up to this summer. Feel free to contact her at ellie@mishegasofmotherhood.com.
