Cape Cod weather today: Overcast and windy, but finally warmer. The skies threaten rain, but the weatherman on the radio insists is getting brighter out there....
Just a short post today, as my middle son handed me a rainbow on the way to school and I thought I'd share.
Me: "Isn't it dress-up day at school today?"
Me: "Aren't you supposed to be dressed as your favorite book character?"
Me: "So who are you supposed to be?"
11-year-old: "I'm Shea Maguire, from the book you're writing. I'm reading the manuscript again, remember?"
Me: (smiling) "I wrote your favorite character? Really?"
11-year-old: "Yeah. It's so much better now. I love it."
11-year-old: "Bsides, it's easy cuz he looks just like me already."
Me: (laughs) "So that's the real reason."
11-year-old: "No. I really really like it. And it'll be fun to explain that my mom WROTE me."
(car reaches the elementary school)
11-year-old: "Bye mom."
