The time of reflection
The crumbs on the floor
I read it in my issue that came in the mail. Your essay is way-crazy-awesome! Go, you! You've now been published by both the places I really want to be accepted by but always get rejected by - you're in the big times! Congrats!!!!!!!!
WOOHOO!!! I remember that essay from our class together! Huge congrats to you. (Also excited to hear you are doing the advanced class with Kate this summer...I gotta get writing!)
Andrea, that's awesome. That publication is pretty new to me, but I love everything I've read in it so far - I'll have to get my hands on a copy so I check out your piece. Congratulations!
I am so absolutely, over-the-top thrilled for you. Absolutely thrilled. A HUGE congratulations. This must, must be celebrated in person at some point.
Congratulations, that is a high honor. Can't wait to read it!
So awesome Andrea!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Congrats.

That is so great! I recently started advertising in Brain Child and think it is a great magazine. I loved your essay! Way to go Mama!!suzy
Hi, Andrea. I just read your essay in Brain, Child. Congratulations, it's a wonderful essay and what an honor to have it in such a fine publication. My five-year-old son is over-the-top into guns as well. And, my husband and I are so not into guns. So, I can relate to much of what you wrote. It's funny, I also wrote about this topic in an essay workshop I took two months ago with Lisa Romeo. I was inspired to see your essay in print. Thanks for sharing it.
Ditto what Motherlogue said above...awesome essay and some of the same issues I was/am dealing with as a peace-lovin Mama of two boys (now 10 & 9). I too explored this in an essay, but from the point of view that my husband's view differed from mine (i.e. he's from a long line of Naval Acadamy men!). I think reading your piece really helped me see clearly what I was trying to say in mine. <3
Thank you! I love to hear that I'm not alone!
