The End

Jump to Comments

This will be my last post here on Toddler Summer. It’s sort of bittersweet. This spot on the great big Internet is where I found my blogging voice. But this space no longer fits me. I feel penned in by the idea of toddlers and summer and that isn’t what I write about, really. Not who I am anymore. I’ve compiled all of this into two really large books. And seeing all I’ve written over the last four and a half years amazes me still. No wonder I feel like I’m running out of things to say.

I’m excited about new writerly projects. A blank internet canvas to once again make all my own. New ideas to jumpstart my inner narrative again.

I hope you join me as I get started there. It might be different. It might be more of the same.It might be a bit of both. But it feels good. A fresh page of a brand new notebook.

My new site is named after a favorite line from a favorite book. It is called This Here Now and you can find it here. I hope you will click over and read my first post there.

And if you forget where to find me? This site will redirect for a while starting tomorrow.

  • Hey – sorry to see this site going away but glad a new one will take its place. (by the way, the 2 links above didn’t take me to your new site.)

  • Thanks, Cate. I like to think of it as moving – not really going away 🙂 And thanks for the heads-up on the links. I think I fixed them. I hope to “see you” over at my new space…

  • I’ve been following your blog for several years. Sad to see
    it end. Thanks for years of interesting reading. You write
    beautifully. I am a former high school teacher (math) and your
    comments about your teaching life spark fond memories. You have
    evidently raised two beautiful, intelligent, capable and spirited
    children. I have no children of my own. I think that parents who
    blog, and share troubles and triumphs of child-rearing, do a great
    service to other people.

  • Joel, Thanks for your kind words. I really appreciate hearing that you’ve enjoyed my writing. I will be writing still, about parenting and more about education, on my new blog. I hope you’ll continue to read there.
