Yes, We're Related, Why do You Ask?

Jeanie (age 14+)

"Hey Mom, you know that song that goes Every Rose Has it's Thorn, what's it called?"

Lou-Lou (age 13)

"It's a fact, Little Man, kinda like how it's a fact you've got twenty fingers, ya know? Wait . . ."

Little Man (age 10)

"Claudia (the piano teacher) said I did so good on my songs you should buy me a treat."

"I did buy you a treat," I say.

"You did! What is it?"

"Cough syrup."

"That's aweso---hey, wait a minute!"

KB (age 7)

*We were playing a game where you draw a card that gives you a category and you try to come up with things that fit that category. Since she's only 7, she just helps me. The category was "Words you use in place of swear words."

"Oh, I get it," KB says. "Like . . ." She whispers the word in my ear.

"Um, actually, that's a real swear word, sweetie."

It's just nice now and then to get the validation that, yep, their mine and we're all in good company.

Thanks everyone for sharing in my excitement of the DB list, it was so great to share it with friends and get such fabulous feedback. Also, a couple weeks ago I was interviewed by Wendy at Author Beginnings a fun new blog all about how writer's got started. If you want to know where my life as a writer began, click HERE to check it out.

These are so funny. All of them. I love that you see it as evidence that they're yours. I think we really are a lot alike, you and I. :)

By the way, congratulations on your DB status! That is so the best news I've heard in a long time.

HAHAAA! Little moments like these are better than any blood test.

Marylin said...

Haa that is too funny! So I can't wait to get your newest book! I don't know if you would remember me or not but I had written to you awhile back about how my daughter was sealed to my husband before he was able to adopt her in reference to unsung lullaby. I dunno well I love your blog and it is so fun to learn more about you!
