Here's Where Things Get Weird


Back in early February, one of my best ladies in all the land came to visit, and brought her brood, too. Sarah and I stayed up until unholy hours cackling and ruminating. Our kids got on like old mates. Silas still misses Owen and Calvin resigned himself to a future arranged marriage to Audrey, since it means her brothers would be part of the deal. Alas, the weekend was everything I ever needed.

The fact that Sarah's husband was here to film our family felt sort of like an after-thought. And, incidentally, I've officially concluded that I would rock on a reality show. Real Housewives of the 'Hood. Something like that.

Cory was slated to be the real media darling (thanks, Jim!) of the gig, but we all got a bit of airtime. Still, if the photo on this post feels a bit out of place, it's only because I was half asleep on the couch when Cory did his big interview over at the island. Supportive wife that I am. (See: "stayed up until unholy hours cackling".)

I'm so excited about The Fatherhood Project. I see firsthand, every day, the way fathers shape their kids, for the good or the bad. This is important work and it's such an honor to be part of it.

Have a peek at the trailer (you'll see some familiar faces!) and feel free to spread the word!
