Something about looking out this window with Lil’ Pirate Dude and the two weeks I’ve just had made me teary. I’m sitting with him, having fun and just hanging after his Seattle grandparents left for the airport. We are in the alcove at Barnes & Noble where authors have readings, have signings, and out of nowhere I promise him:
“One day soon, little man, your Mama will be the speaker here for an event for her books. You will be so proud of her, and will sit with your Daddy listening to the stories that you’ve likely heard many times as Mama’s default beta-reader (when age appropriate).”
He smiled and I lost it. Now back to my daily word count…..
