She also asserts frequently and with great confidence that the last day of this coming summer will be the best day of her life because then she gets to start Kindergarten the next day. Let’s see how long her enjoyment of school lasts, shall we?
And then today, as I was blubbering my way through reading out loud to my oldest, the last pages of the fabulous Newbery Medal-winning book, The Bronze Bow, sniffling loudly, tears streaming down my face, barely holding my voice together, she taped a piece of long thin paper to my face and said, “I’m giving you whiskers!”
Way to gauge the mood, kid.
So, as you see, my daughter is a weirdo… but I still love her. 🙂
In other news, I got word today from our publisher that my co-author and I are a go for publishing our second book*, 101 Tips for Marrying the Right Person! That was happy news. (Way better than tomatoes.) So, all you with single, eligible children, or who are single and searching yourself, look forward to this book due out next year! Just try to hold out for it, okay. 😉
*The first book is 101 Tips for a Happier Marriage, in case you didn’t know.
Have your kids done anything weird lately? Do you have any stories of a child being completely oblivious to your mood? Please, do share!
