Happily, dear readers, I am heading off for two weeks by the late summer seashore.  Equally happily, in my absence Parents News Now will be in the wise and talented hands of my friend and colleague Erin O'Donnell.

You've seen Erin on PNN before (click here to read some of her past posts), and I hope you'll join me in looking forward to keeping up to date on parenting news through her excellent posts.

Welcome back, Erin!
