Editor's Note

Our intended theme for September was "back to school" but as I read our excellent columns and "make this" submission, I realized that wasn't our theme at all. The theme is about The Personal: how we define ourselves as parents by what feels right, by what we do and by what we do for our children.

So it's not so much about a return as it is about a journey. Our journeys as parents, caretakers, creators define us and our children. We learn from each other and from our children, same as they learn from us. Take some time this month to think about your parental journey, the lessons you learn and teach. Write a letter to yourself or your child. Write a blog entry on what you're learning right now. Be creative and flexible and honest. At the end of the month, who knows what more we'll have learned?
