So, What’s Your Story?

Monday, January 31, 2011

I’ve always been interested in hearing other people’s stories. Learning about how someone developed their sensibilities, their beliefs, their perspective—all of it, fascinating. This blog is about that, sharing stories and by extension, trading lessons lived and learned.

Ms. Mary Mack tries to take an anthropological approach to motherhood/parenting, with the hope of gaining more insight, more information, more wisdom, more compassion … and passing all of this intel along to others.

It may sound syrupy, but it’s true: we need each other, especially as we negotiate this parenthood pathway.

All of this to say, I’m on the hunt for more stories. I want to hear from more mothers (and fathers!) who are doing this thing with style, their own style. I’d love to hear from people like:

  • the single mother/single father
  • the adoptive mother
  • the stay-at-home or work-from-home dad
  • more global mamas
  • the co-parenting mom/dad
  • the gay dad
  • the lesbian mom
  • the parent recovering
  • the mom who never wanted to have children, but changed her mind just as the shot clock ran out of time

Basically, I just want to hear about you, and all the twists your story takes.

So, I’ve got my notebook opened to a fresh page and I’m listening. Tell me your story (or nominate someone else to be featured here). Start by dropping me a line at get[dot]msmack [at] gmail [dot] com.

Thanks, friends.
