Don’t forget, this week anything goes.
Put whatever you want in my inbox—even anonymously, if you like.
So, c’mon, join me in a nice exchange. I saved a seat for you.
I’m excited to announce a fun show I am hosting on E-MPROV.com this Sunday at 9pm PST. Charlie Capen and Andy Herald (www.howtobeadad.com), and David Vienna ( thedaddycomplex ) will be joining me for a live Google Hangout improv show.
Send us questions either here on Tumblr, or to our Twitter accounts (listed below) using the hashtag #EMPROV . We will answer your questions and then use those discussions to inspire some improv comedy.
Then on Sunday night at 9pm PST, tune into www.E-MPROV.com to watch the live show.

!!! For Every Book Pre-Ordered, We Will Donate A Copy To A PFLAG Chapter !!!
SOMETHING AWESOME IS HAPPENING.
We recently talked to the lovely human beings at Chronicle Books (our book’s publisher), and explained how important we felt it was to get This is a Book for Parents of Gay Kids in the hands of people who need it most: parents of LGBTQ kids (duh).
Chronicle agreed with us, and so through September 8th, every single pre-order for This is a Book for Parents of Gay Kids will be matched with a book donated to a local PFLAG Chapter!!!!
All you need to do is this:
TADA! If you’ve already pre-ordered, you can still let Chronicle know and ensure that you are getting a copy donated.
This is pretty amazing.
Please share far & wide!!

I know the looming preschool deadline might freak you out, but it’s about him right now—not you, not his preschool. Be patient. And for any potential messes, invest in whatever household cleaner you prefer.
Because it was in his face. And he’s 5.
To be honest, I don’t have time to read other blogs that much. I barely have time to bathe myself.
But, I do enjoy many posts from the parenting community here on The Tumblr. A few that come to mind are:
And though it’s not parenting related, I still enjoy selleckwaterfallsandwich.
