I've had an idea for a book in mind for a few years now. It's going to be a compilation of short essays and funny things that my kids say. Mostly anecdotes I've already blogged or used as my facebook status updates. I've already got a plethora of really great material and it just keeps coming.
I've also already started writing it in snippets here and there. Here's an oldie but goodie sneak peek of one of the first page:
I was sitting on Alex's bed with him tucking him in. He stuck his hand in something brown and slimy. He said "Eww, what is that?"
I determined, upon closer look and smell, that it was the remains of a very ripe, mushy banana (that quite conceivably went through the washer since I just pulled his quilt out of the dryer an hour ago.) I said "It's okay, it's just some banana."
and he said...
"No, I think maybe a fruit fly pooped on my bed."
Anyway, I've had the title and the cover image in my head forever, but up until now I've never been able to properly capture it on film. Until last week...
"Reflections on Motherhood."
