I have to give a quick plug to Kathryn Mahoney, who used to write the Profile columns for Religious Conference Manager back when I edited that magazine. Anyway, Kathryn's been busy writing what I think are hilarious articles about parenthood on her Cracked at Birth Web site. And this fall, she'll be coming out with a book that includes a compilation of her articles. Great holiday gift idea for the parents, particularly the moms, on your list.
(Disclaimer: obviously, I'm acquainted with her, but she really is funny in an Irma Bombeck kind of way.)
