Well, I never thought I’d ever have something in my life that I’d be proud for my kids to follow. I made all the rookie mistakes as a mom: got pregnant in High School, married a total creep, divorced said creep, married again to run away from said creep, divorced nice guy when he left me for his ex-wife… Well, you get the idea. I even went so far as to start and not finish college. I mean, talk about a path you pray your children don’t follow!! Well, writing found me at an early age. I dabbled with it from the time I was old enough to actually form sentences. I mean, Dick and Jane had some crazy times, let me just say! 😉 Anyway, before I get off on yet another tangent, I just wanted to say that my daughter has told me she wants to take writing classes and enter some short story contests! This kid is good too! Before long, she will be looking in her rear view mirror and watching me eating her dust. I’m so proud of her I could just hug the tar out of her! Okay, you can resume your regularly scheduled day now. Thanks for stopping by 🙂
