Big Baby-Sitters Club News!

Check out this New York Times article by Motoko Rich about the plans for a revival of The Baby-sitters Club books! Make sure you read the entire article because you might see some familiar names. My Friend Amy is featured because of the Baby-Sitters Club Week that she hosted back in November. And Booking Daughter and I are mentioned in the last few paragraphs!!!

While I'm extremely flattered to be in the article, I just knew that my age would be mentioned! After I was interviewed, I was joking with my sister-in-law that the article would say "Julie P., a 40 year old mom, who was too old to read the books when they first came out." I wasn't too far off, was I?

Booking Daughter and I are going to head out first thing in the morning to see if we can get our hands on a copy!

Congratulations! I know, I saw that 40 and said OMG!!! I bet Julie's not going to be happy with that particular aspect of the article!

Well, they probably said it because clearly you only look half that! :--)
