Someone Has Taken A Shine To Me!

Allow me to introduce you to Justin, aka Writing Pad Dad. He's clever, and very witty, and full of sensitive insights about the world of parenting that make him a unique and mature voice in the increasingly crowded, and often noisy blogosphere. He talks about marriage, and aging, and the battle of the bulge with honesty and humor. He doesn't shy away from difficult topics, and instead broaches them with both wisdom and style. He's among my very favorites on my ever-growing blog feed. I encourage you to spend some time visiting his site...I don't doubt that you'll fall head over heels for his generous warmth, his adorable family, and  his top-notch writing.



Justin has this cool new series called, "Blogs to Take a Shine to", where he features some of his favorite bloggy spots on the web. When he asked me to be featured, I was wildly flattered, and of course, I agreed. He sent some questions, I sent some answers, and today, they'll be reunited on his terrific site.

So go check it out & tell Justin that Jen sent ya. I'm waxing poetic about growing old, lessons learned and what I hope my parenting legacy might look like...

  1. Wow! What a glowing review! Who is this guy, Writing Pad Dad? Oh, wait... that's me! Thank you so much. You made my day. Thank you also for participating in my Blogs To Take A Shine To series! By the way, you said something about me being "mature". Is that code for "old"? I was just wondering. Could you let me know? I'll be busy with my new nose hair trimmer while I am waiting to hear back from you...

    1. My guess is that it'll take a lot more than some sweet words from you to creep Justin out ;) Thanks so much my friend!

  7. Just read your interview. Didn't know you were a recreation coordinator! That's awesome...though I'm sure it must be exceptionally challenging!
