A few weeks ago, I posted something about Baby Think It Over. It got some discussion. This weekend is my weekend to bring home the baby. It's a bit of an experience, and it's going to be a long weekend. A LONG weekend. I named my baby boy Wilson Cooper. Wilson's a family name and Cooper's just awesome.

So far, since it turned on at 4 PM, he's been fed 4 times, had his diaper canged 3 times and has fussed for close to 2 hours total. I'm already exhausted. Right now my baby is... snoring, maybe? Or snorting like a horse? Not totally sure.



In 2006, then-editor Steve Smith of The Spokesman-Review had the idea of starting a publication for an often forgotten audience: teenagers. The Vox Box was a continuation of the Vox, an all-student staffed newspaper published by The Spokesman-Review. High school student journalists who staffed the Vox made all content decisions as they learn about the trade of journalism. This blog's mission was to give students an opportunity to publish their voices. The Vox Box and the Vox wrapped up in June 2009, but you can follow former staffers' new blog at
