Former Child Star Makes Good

You probably know all about how Quinn Cummings, of The Goodbye Girl movie fame, came up with the baby toting device called a hip hugger, and if you didn't well now you do. I'll admit to having a big crush on her back in the '70's. I thought she was super cool in The Goodbye Girl since her character had more smarts than the adults. Whenever I see the film now I flashback to the time I saw the film by myself in the theater (I'm still perplexed that my parents that never let me do anything would let me go see PG rated films all by myself at the age of 10) wishing I could be in NYC visiting Lucy McFadden. It turns out that Quinn grew up to be smart (the hip hugger invention, plus escaping Hollywood) and now she's a blogger with The QC Report which is all about her adventures as a mother. You're probably asking what in the heck would I be doing reading her blog when I'm not a mom. Well, I am a father of three kids who happen to have the best mother around and Quinn's blog entries remind me of the same things happening to my wife. Plus it's always nice to see a former child star make good.

I just read her post about having no privacy. It was HILARIOUS. Thanks for letting us know about this.

She is such a sweetie! She actually took the time to send me a little email thanking me for my comment, and telling me that I, too, could procreate if the will was mine (it's not)!

Quinn rocks.
