Check Out MyBrownBaby's New Blog At's The Parenting Post!

My smokin' hot job as a columnist and Mom Squad panelist for Parenting magazine just got hotter! As of today, I'm the newest blogger of's The Parenting Post. I join four other moms—Rocks in My Dryer, Mommy Needs Coffee, Daring Young Mom, and Mighty Maggie—in the Parenting blogger line-up; I'll be contributing the Friday posts there, blogging about the subject I absolutely adore the most: my beautiful, scary smart, wacky, goofy, lovely kids. Here, a sneak peek of my first Parenting Post column, which will be up later this morning:

Now can someone please tell this to my 10-year-old? Because my Mari’s under the impression that she’s actually smarter than me.

Oh, she hasn’t come right out and said it, but it’s crystal the moment she pulls her homework out of her knapsack. Witness yesterday’s “My Mom Is Not Smarter Than a Fifth Grader” homework exchange...
