DeeDee Filiatreault began writing a humor column about the misadventures of family life for the Lyme Times in Shoreline Connecticut in 2007 and now for her blog, www.TalesFromTheCribBlog.com. She has spent her adult life writing words for many different entities, including former South Carolina Governor David Beasley as his chief speechwriter and now as grants writer for the Florence Griswold Museum in Old Lyme. A transplant from the Carolinas, she lives in Niantic with her husband, two children, two fish, one cat, one spastic terrier, and one blissfully quiet rabbit.
Synopsis: A collection of banana-peel-slipping, heart-filled essays on parenthood, covering one mom’s first decade of parenting –from toddler to tween to everything in between.
