Another on-camera zoom day for me, but it's too hot for PJ bottoms these days! (Otherwise I have a *lovely* red and white plaid pajama set that would have complimented this look quite nicely, if I do say so myself.) Instead, this 45-year-old mama's gonna show some leg. 👊 . . What am I doing today? Yep, I'm promoting my books to struggling schooling-at-home warrior parents, and I'm also doing a few other things for various charities like @lollipoptheater and @readaheadny. There will be a few outfit changes. 😉 . . And… today is the last chance to book me for a one-on-one live video chat at the @thats4ent Christmas Con tomorrow! I'm donating 50% of my proceeds from the one-on-one video chats to fighting child trafficking. 👊 Link in bio! . . Happy Friday, everyone!! Hope you all stay healthy, happy and safe! 🤗
