This has been a very crazy week, with C.J. starting first grade and his brother Chase starting fifth grade. I’m in the middle of writing a post about their first week of school. Until I finish that, enjoy this:
If you’ve followed my blog over the last two and a half years, I’m sure you’ve noticed a change in my writing voice. I had been using wit and sass most of my life to protect myself and appear less vulnerable than I really was. I mistakenly thought that people wouldn’t appreciate the sincere and raw version of me. Most importantly, I didn’t think that I would like that version of myself. I was wrong on both accounts. Learn how a very special book editor helped me find vulnerability and sincerity through writing.
Thank you to all of you who have purchased my book and helped me to inspire a conversation that raises awareness of, understanding about and acceptance for gender creative kids. Let’s keep the conversation going – kids like C.J. deserve it.
Xoxo, C.J.’s Mom (a.k.a Lori Duron)
