These two are writing a book together in a google doc. Because they can see what the other is typing, as she’s typing it, when one misspelled a word on her computer, the other corrected it on her own. Then the first wrote in the doc, “Show off,” and they both started laughing.
While they were washing dishes earlier, I heard them discussing what hair color to give a particular character.
“But James has red hair.”
“What about black?”
I chimed in with, “How about strawberry blond?”
“Oooh, let’s do that,” said one.
“Yes,” agreed the other.
“You know why?” I said.
In unison they said, smiling, “Because Mom is always right.”
I have them well trained. 😉
In other news, I bought Chex Mix, my old friend, for a party (and because it was on sale, natch.) I noticed that one of my friends went at it the way I used to. I smiled wistfully at her. The left overs were eagerly eaten the next day by my son. I may have created a new generation of Chex Mix monster.
Speaking of the little monster, when I tucked Joe into bed one night, he said, “Get ____” something I couldn’t understand.
“What?” I said.
“Get Dad,” he said.
“Oh, okay.” Then I yelled, “Hun!” and in doing so, realized what Joe had first said: “Get Hun.” 🙂
How about you? Read any good books or eat any good snacks lately? Have an opinion on co-writing?
