What A Character

Here's an excerpt from the current story I'm writing. This kid will always be engraved in my memory.

"We had a round-headed kid on the team. Before you think blockhead Charlie Brown, elongate that image into a gangly six-year-old with buzzed hair, Coca-Cola ball cap, and enough energy to play the whole ball game single-handedly. That tow-headed kid you're picturing with what looks like dried macaroni and cheese on his face is Scotty Roy. To say that Scotty Roy was hyper and active would be a complete understatement but loveable still applied in a perplexing kind of way. Everything about him was a little awkward, like the way he talked, the way he dressed, the way he tried to stand on his head and catch fly balls (or was it just flies?) with his feet."

Camping with a Toddler is Like

Camping with a toddler is like:

Multiplying multitasking by something worse

Alternating between pulling your teeth and hair out

Trying to sled down a lumpy hill in the middle of June

Finishing a scrumptious meal only to find out you ate tofu

Okay, maybe those examples are a little over the top, but we decided one night was enough. :) Maybe next year we'll make it for two nights! Ha!

(In all reality, it was pretty fun--just exhausting. Now for a couple sick days.)
