That’s why we are so glad we found Miranda zine and Fertile Ground. Based out of Portland and Memphis, respectively, these homegrown magazines offer great reading for a little more than a pack of gum. Seriously.
Miranda, which contains mother-focused essays and commentary by writer Kate Haas, is published twice a year. Stacey Greenberg, an urban anthropologist of the mothering kind, founded Fertile Ground, a zine for people who dig parenting (and like to read really great stuff).
I was so engrossed by both that I spent an hour on the elliptical without even getting to my US Weekly. So now I have a slightly thinner butt, and my mom brain feels rejuvenated and alive. Go figure. –Kristen
