This is why I should only try to write AFTER the kids have gone to bed.
Kids and writing do not mix. Mild-mannered mom turns into a T-Rex.I should have thought ahead and asked my husband if my mother's day could have been a writer's retreat in a secluded mountain cabin with a beautiful, peaceful view.... instead of breakfast in bed (which only lasts for about 15 minutes).
Some well-intentioned teacher at my twins' preschool (who does NOT have kids of her own) helped my three year olds to paint ceramic mugs for Mother's Day and plant little petunias in them. Very cute, right?
NOT A GOOD IDEA. I have now officially cleaned up spilled dirt THREE times since they brought them home.
Ah, but I do love my kids. They are the light of my life. I was thinking this morning, what characters they are!
Then it hit me: characters.
Characters = writing.
(Trying to write on Mother's Day = not a good idea)
