I put this page up in a big hurry back in 1996 when I wanted to have some place to stick my nursing-strike story, and the name was intended both as homage to Bonnie Bedford's Radical Mother page and to represent just really enjoying yourself and your children. At the time I certainly intended to put a lot more stuff here, but haven't really gotten around to it yet -- maybe after I do I'll see if I can come up with a perfect new name for this page that would still do those things but sound somewhat greater in scope and a bit less, um, "airheaded." We'll see ...
I used to have an unofficial TCS (Taking Children Seriously) mailing-list page here that many people had linked to, but now that the official TCS page has finally gone up, I'm just going to direct people there.
And of course this wouldn't be any kind of proper mothering page if I didn't mention my wonderful children Sam and Arthur.
Why not visit their pages too, as long as you're here?

In memory of Bonnie Bedford, 5/26/53 - 7/11/97
Many people have written beautiful tributes to Bonnie (you'll see links to a lot of them a few paragraphs down) along the lines of "Bonnie was [this] and she taught me/us [that]", but I just can't do that myself, any more than I've been able to post something to Bonnie's guest book. Everything I have to say is too long and rambling and personal, and comes out in bits and pieces every day in mailing list messages instead of being something that could be summed up in a few sentences for a web-page tribute.
But I wanted to put something up anyway, so I decided to put up versions of some of my postings about Bonnie. Here's a start, and I'll be putting up more soon.
Bonnie Bedford memorial web pages
And here are some other pages that have added memorial messages or dedications about Bonnie in addition to their usual content. These pages show a sampling of many of Bonnie's friends around the world, the different worlds Bonnie moved in and the people she inspired and helped.
I thought I would also list some of the fundraisers that raised money for Bonnie's treatments.
I'll continue to add more links of all types as I find out about them, but the best thing to do is just to read about Bonnie in her own words on her homepage, The Radical Mother.
