My daughter was in the second grade when I started writing this blog (back in 2003). This year, she will graduate from high school. I have been struggling to come up with a new name for the blog, since I get way too many pitches for diapers and toys and other items my newly-minted adult daughter doesn’t need any longer, but ¬†all the variations on “empty nest” and “midlife transition” seem to be taken.

Besides, I’ve been “SoCal Mom” for so long, I am afraid no one will know who I am – there, “SoCal Mom” I remain. For now.
