Do you have visions of an animated candlestick singing around a big castle? I can’t hear those words without thinking of one of my favorite Disney movies, Beauty and the Beast.
But that’s not actually what today’s post is about. Due to a scheduling glitch, our intended post for today will be rescheduled. And in the meantime, we’d like to invite you to be our guests today. We want to hear about YOU – the mama you, the writer you, the you you…whatever you’d like to share.
Just yesterday, my almost-four-year old came up to me, wiggling his eyebrows up and down and making the funniest, silliest faces I’ve seen yet. (And I’ve seen plenty!) He’s discovered that he can move his eyebrows… and apparently, that is very cool. It’s moments like these that make me adore being a mom. I love it, always, even when I consider selling him to gypsies, but moments like these — watching him learn something new make me adore being his mom. It’s a joy like no other.
On the writer side, I recently attended a workshop by Donald Maass and I’m reading his book to really cement the concepts I learned in my head. And somewhere along the way, I had the “I get it. I see it. I know what he’s talking about.” moment. It made me look at how far I’ve come in my writing and learning process (and how much I still have to learn, always) and it was a moment I could be proud of. Because along the way, even when life gets in the way, I’m learning. One of the things I adore about being a writer.
So I want to know your most recent moments… funny, sweet, whatever. About being a mom and about being a writer.
