A quotation mark eraser! How handy — in case you say something that you regret. Found in my $16 yellow rubber boots from Zellers, which cost only three times what some other boots cost. Not that I’m counting.
I’m Susan Goldberg, a 40-something writer & editor who writes about cancer, motherhood, sleep deprivation & toe jam — among other things. My seven-year-old likes to shoot laser beams from his fingers, but we are coaching him on using his special powers for good instead of evil. My five-year-old is going to throw you in jail because you're mean. My sons have two moms, and, for a variety of reasons beyond my control, I am their “Mama Non Grata.” I’m co-editor of the anthology And Baby Makes More: Known Donors, Queer Parents, and Our Unexpected Families, out now with Insomniac Press!
