Guest Editor: Chris Jordan from Notes From The Trenches
Chris Jordan was a child in her former life. She got married straight out of graduate school to her trophy husband, gave birth to more kids than you can count on one hand, and after thirteen years of parenting still looks around and wonders when the real mother is going to come home.
She began blogging at Notes From the Trenches in 2004, never expecting more than a handful of people to ever read it. And half expecting that she would have to bribe even those few souls. Slowly her blog developed a following and has been nominated for several blog awards over the years.

My youngest son loves robots. In fact, one of his favorite things is when “robots” call our house. I don’t have the heart to tell him they’re automated messages from the dentist.

Modern version of the authentic backpack most school children in Japan carry. You have to get the red one.
