More of My Daughter's Thoughts

On the way to daycare this morning, I asked my daughter if she'd had any dreams last night.

"No," she replied, very matter-of-factly. "I'm all out of dreams."

"You are?" I said in astonishment.

"Yup. I have to put more dreams in my head!"

She then proceeded to softly smack her dreams into her head with her hand.

Keep in mind I'm driving the entire time. It was an effort not to pull over on the side of the road and just hug her for being so darn adorable.

In Writing News...

What writing news? I'm determined to get stuff done on Robert's story, tentatively titled The Rake's Lady. I really really want to dive into it. So why can't I? I wanted to last night, but I had a headache - a very bad one - bad enough that I took four aspirin. I think it was partly because I didn't have any Diet Pepsi yesterday and my body was going through a caffeine withdrawal.

We have our last chapter meeting of the year tonight. We don't meet in December - it's just too hectic. But we are planning a holiday get-together in January as well as a writing retreat in February. Should be fun!


  1. Yes, she IS adorable! :)

    I just finished a story and am ready to dive into something new.

  2. That is really cute. Save up these memories for when she is 13 and so intolerable you wonder if she really is human.

  3. I hate it when life gets in the way of writing.

    Your daughter is adorable! I just love kids when they are innocent and funny as heck!

  4. Argh - I hate caffeine withdrawal! Your daughter cracks me up. I like that she has a solution for when you run out! Just smack a few back in there!

  5. I sympathize on the headaches. For me, caffeine intake is a delicate balance. Too much, and I get a headache. Too little, and I get a headache. I can't win for losing.

    And yes, your daughter must be a doll!


I love to hear from you!
