Out of the Mouth of Babes

Yesterday, my husband and I were talking, and I mentioned jokingly that I could go back to work if he wanted to start a second career in politics. My 3 1/2 year old son says in all seriousness,"Mommies don't work." I'm not sure how to take this since I think stay-at-home moms "work" pretty hard. So I asked him what does his mommy do, and he answered "Go to book club." At the very least, he does know what I enjoy!

As I was writing this, I remembered another funny story about my son. His daddy asked him what I needed for Christmas, and he answered, "A BREAK!" Needless to say, I fell over laughing. After thinking for a few seconds he changed his answer and said, "Mommy needs books for presents." I don't know about you, but I consider both answers to be awesome gifts!

*lol* You definitely have your son well trained :) If this is the start of things to come you're going to be a very well loved mum as he grows up to be very considerate.

Hi Julie,

It's nice to see that your son knows what's important. Cherish this time with your little one. There's always time for a career when the kids get older.

That's what I did. When my youngest started high school, I went back into the workforce by day and began writing novels by night. --And it worked out beautifully for me. As you know, my debut novel, Searching for Spice, just hit the bookstore shelves.

Thanks for entering my contest on authorbuzz.com. I appreciate your interest.

Have a blessed week!

A prisoner of hope,
