My Very First Guest Blogger: Welcome, Dan Gilbert from Primrose Schools

I mentioned in my last post that one of the reasons I have re-embraced the blogging world is because I was contacted by someone reaching out to promote Bethenny Frankel, which is really quite fun for me because: A) She’s a kitschy celebrity who is my guilty pleasure to follow, B) I was flattered that her representative liked my blog enough to use it to promote her, and, on a more humble note, C) despite the limited activity from my end, someone actually found my blog and read it, and that deserves a nod of thanks. So, in the interest of giving nods-of-thanks where they’re due, welcome Dan Gilbert from Primrose Schools. Not only did he find me on-line, he thought enough of my blog to ask to be my first guest blogger, and that is pretty cool, too!

Dan writes about the educational value of learning to cook. His article speaks to parents with slightly younger children than I typically write for – my Little Miss just turned 14! However, I like it because Little Miss and I have always cooked together and we still do, and I believe that the value of kitchen-time, shared with family and friends, is not age-dependent. read more »

Apparently I’m not the only reader. This post has generated 32 comments and counting! It seems us moms have a lot to say on this subject, and we’re not shy about sharing.
