If you happen to subscribe to Parents magazine and have received your October issue in the mail, please go get it right now. I'll wait.*scratching*
*wishing for donut*
You're back! Now turn to page 161. Hi-hi! Check it out...it's me and Audrey!
Within a larger article about autism, is our little story, which I had submitted to their blog back in April for a series during Autism Awareness Month.
I don't subscribe to Parents and had a helluva time finding someplace that carried it. The only store I found that carries it around here is Barnes and Noble, and even they only get 3 copies a month.
On the off chance that you feel it's really not worth your while to chase down a hard copy -- which BTW puts you in the company of my mother, siblings, and, well, everyone else that I know -- here is a link to the story on their website.
Or you could just wait and read a dog-eared, coffee-stained, puked-on copy at your pediatrician's office 8 months from now. Which is about the only circumstance under which I've ever flipped through a Parents magazine prior to this.
Don't worry...success and fame have not gone to Audrey's head yet. When I showed her the article, she said "Epcot!" because that's where the photo was taken.
She's become quite enamored of the issue, but not because we are in it. She's taken to fanning out the multiple copies that I purchased on the couch and staring at them. Then she'll obsessively flip through them, but the page with our photo and article does appear to be even in her top 10 favorite pages.
We seem to be running far behind pages picturing cotton candy (pages 3 and 147), birthday cake (pages 21 and 212), ice cream cones (page 128), and various ads for Milky Way, Nestle's Tollhouse, frozen pizza, Dove chocolate, and Reddi-Wip.
Hopefully this will lead to bigger and better thing for us...like, you know...the cover of Cupcake magazine!
