So, I am most thankful for...kids. All kids. Young adults, cute little newborn babies, the terrible twosters, terrific tweens, and fabulous fours...all of them. A lot of us write our stories based on their lives, why not pay homage to them.
I write YA and MG so all my material comes from my children, my nieces and nephews, and the neighborhood kids. I sit down and talk to them all the time and the neighbor's kids don't think I'm the weird lady that lives in the middle of the block! They just think I'm nice. Some even think I'm cool. *gasp*
They provide me with an endless amount of material to work with. They say and do things that I, nor most adults, wouldn't expect. They mess up, their loud, they are always hungry for something sweet, and they bring the biggest smile to my face. The late nights, the tears, the noise, the messes are all worth it in the end. Why? Because I can make money off their shenanigans!!!! LOL Just Kidding.
But children are like fireworks. They are always popping off and jumping around and surprising us. So, in honor of "the kid" I felt this musical selection was fitting.
Have a great day. Read a book and laugh.
