  1. I read “For Me” and “Clown Nose” and enjoyed them both. They’re both cute parenting stories that I think most parents can relate to. You do a good job at capturing the whimsy and innocence of these parent / child interactions. I look forward to reading more stories like these as I’m sure there’s tons of these kinds of occurrences from which to to draw inspiration. Great work, Stephanie!
