    I had a blast being interviewed by Meredith at Like Merchant Ships yesterday. She’s posted the podcast at Frugal Conversations. You can listen to the podcast on your computer by clicking the “play” arrow, or download it by clicking the widget to get to the Blog Talk Radio site. I’ve discovered that I like to download the podcasts and load them onto my mp3 player so I can listen to them whenever I want.

    If you’ve found Chief Family Officer for the first time via the podcast, WELCOME! As Meredith mentioned, my favorite topics to discuss are family finances, cooking, and parenting. I’m a mother of two young boys and also work full-time as an attorney. I’ve been blogging since June 2005, when my oldest son was just a couple of months old, so my blogging reflects the changes in our lives as my sons grow up. For example, I started off by posting a lot about breastfeeding, but more recently I’ve discussed potty training.

    Here are some posts that I think Like Merchant Ships readers will enjoy:
