What does your child have to say about it all?

One of mine is at a stage where if I don't post something about a special event (e.g. a birthday, or a departure to a faraway country for study-abroad) I feel slightly neglectful. What, you don't care enough?

I remember a columnist in the SF Chronicle years ago (I want to say Anna Quindlen; is that possible??) who made a deal: if she wrote about her children in the column that week, she had to pay them $5. Of course now with inflation our kids are likely unaffordable .
