askyermom is probably not written by your mom.
If your mom wrote this, she would probably be nagging you to read it, I’m pretty sure.
The main reason I keep coming back to add to this journal is that my sixth child needs to hear things I have already said 7 million times. I am pretty tired of talking, but I love writing.
I have been journaling to irritate and educate my kids for over twenty years and have occasionally received actual U.S. dollars for words. (Well, once, in Salon).
Nearly all the questions here are actual kid questions. Some answers are very thoughtfully and painstakingly researched and others are something else.
Anyone can send in a question, just comment or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org and then cook your own dinner.
