We're a family of writers from the Pacific Northwest. We range in age from 27 to 57. We are parents, grandparents, and a couple childless by choice. We have world travelers and those who won't leave home, meat eaters and a vegetarian, runners and couch potatoes. We're like every family, a little nutty and rough around the edges. Visit our About Us page to meet us all.
The day my daughter called me from college to ask how to boil an egg was a huge blow. It was at that moment that I realized that I'd let her down as a parent. I had tried so hard to be the “perfect” mother, baking and cooking for her and her friends, that I had completely forgotten to teach her how to do basic things like boil an egg.
