I try very hard not to buy into the SuperMom myth...that constant pressure to do and be everything to our kids and families. We all know it's impossible to attain and counterproductive to set those ridiculous expectations. That said, when my 7-year-old son puts a cape on me, by God I'm gonna wear it proudly.

The last few weeks have been crazy-busy. I spent a weekend at the Erma Bombeck Writers Workshop, where I got to hang out with wonderful and talented writer-pals from all over the country, plus be inspired by some incredible speakers. Camp Erma was everything I hoped it would be.

I've also been preaching the Listen to Your Mother gospel every chance I get. I even did a TV interview without throwing up before or after!

Tomorrow is the big day for Listen to Your Mother Austin. If you haven't bought tickets, there are a few left. Hope to see you there. I just might be the one in a cape.
