It's been a little over three years now since I first promised to my mom that I would write a book containing practical "how-to-raise-good-kids" tips, and I'm excited to think that it's actually materializing. Of course, my own mom, who was a grandma of nine, was the inspiration for this project, but other grandmas come to mind as well. There's my dear friend in La Jolla who was the world's very first "Professional Grandma," and the author of several books. She has been a constant inspiration for me since we first met 18 years ago. And I have two good friends who both come from families of all boys. As you can imagine, their moms are loving, yet tough as nails. Then there's my own 93 year old mother-in-law. Not only is she as sharp as a tack, but she is my role model for how to change and flex with the times. All have raised good kids. I can't wait to share and hear all the stories!
