I guess October was Attachment Parenting month (who knew it was limited to a month a year?!). In honor of this, the website Attachment Parenting Month hosted an essay contest about "Giving our children presence" based on quote by Hendricks. Unfortunately it's too late to submit, but I thought some of you might want to read given your interest in mothering wisdom and writing [disclaimer- I wrote an essay and mine was one of four chosen for people to vote on but you won't know which one].
I would've shared this opportunity to submit with you guys, but I didn't realize until today(!) that there was a Mothers Writing Group here- sorry!
Congrats Julie. I am a volunteer with API and was actually the person that put the essays online on Sunday for voting. I enjoyed reading through all of them. After the contest closes at the end of the month you'll have to let us know which one was yours.
