Karina Bland is one of my writing heroes–one of my parenting heroes, too!  She’s kind of the Erma Bombeck of my generation.  Her column appears in the AZ Republic every Sunday and she writes about her experiences parenting her son, Sawyer.  I always love to read about how she is learning and growing as a parent, and this particular article really rang a bell for me because I have learned so much from my children’s teachers over the years.  Thanks to the AZ Republic for giving me permission to link to it here!
