I usually write about...well, writing. It is a big topic for me and when I sit down to do a blog I tend to focus on that subject. With Summer here once again the time I get to spend with my kids increases, bed times are later and they are home throughout the day. So I figured today I'd talk a little bit about the two awesome little people I share my life with.
Anastasia my oldest. She is me reborn as a girl. Although lately she has reached the age that she is liking the more girly things in life. Still this is my movie buddy (since her brother can't stand anything scary) and she is a little cheerleader for my writing. I am always amazed by how focused she is, since she was five(I kid you not) she has wanted to be a chef. She will find recipes and get us to let her make them. Now I won't be shocked if she hits 18 and wants to become a marine biologist or a rodeo clown, but for now I get to reap the delicious rewards of her wanting to be a chef(did I mention she likes making cupcakes?).
Gabriel is quite different from me. He is more like his mother, which isn't a bad thing. Still if he got one thing from me it was his imagination. We have been reading The Rithmatist (Brandon Sanderson) together taking turns reading parts out loud. If you talked to Gabe you'd instantly fall in love, he has a way of saying things you wouldn't expect a nine year old to say. I remember when he was six I asked him why he colored on the wall, his response was, "I had not thought on it much past it being fun, though if I concentrate on it now I can see why you'd be angry." Not smiling at that moment was an impossible task.
I have said before how much these two inspire me to keep working hard on becoming a successful author. To be able to show them they can follow their dreams is every bit my goal as anything else.
Anyway that is some of my family, they are away at their grandmother's so that is probably why I feel all gushy about them at the moment.. As always have fun and keep writing.
