I am fully instituting a 3 times a week blogging schedule, so be prepared every Monday, Wednesday and Friday to have your socks shifted slightly. If we’re all lucky, the socks will be occasionally rocked right off, but I’m not making any promises.
I wonder if every parent really thinks their child is above average? I’m mildly concerned that school will be a little slower than he can tolerate, since his February birthday means Max will be going into junior kindergarten as a 4 going on 5-year-old. I don’t want to imply that he’s a supergenius, but he’s pretty ahead of the curve in verbal skills and logical reasoning. So, either he’ll be frustrated by his peers at school, or he’ll mold them into his personal army. Go get ’em, son!
On to professional matters: I’m trying to submit story ideas to various publications now, to at least inform them of my existence.

My strengths are more towards the articles-made-to-order.
