Because, really. What else do you expect?

Boy Child: Is one of those books for me, mom?

Me: Sure.

Boy Child: Thanks. I'm going to read it now.

Me: Well, um. Maybe you should just save it. And read it later.

Boy Child: Why? I want to read it now.

Me: Well, that's fine hon, it's just...I don't know that you'd understand it now.

Boy Child: Why?

Me: Well...it's just maybe over your head a little.

Boy Child: I'm not following.

Me: I just don't think you'd understand honey.

Boy Child, rolling his eyes: MOM! Duh! That's WHY I want to read it NOW. I'll understand it when I get OLDER. I don't want to read it then!




Of course.

You are adorable. I love your blog and I really want to read your book!

I love 'boy child' and 'girl child'. You make me smile.

I'm a writer, too. I'm considering sending my manuscript to Inkwater Press (which is how I found your blog).

Congratulations on begin published!

Very astute. I hope Boy Child doesn't grow out of his cleverness like most men.
