#19 had mark and i laughing out loud. we had parent teacher conferences last night. let's just say eddie doesn't really love writing. he is a genius (truth) but taking the time to sit and write out a story is something he just isn't down with. so after a long heart-to-heart with him and some consequences and incentives i did this little interview to lighten the mood and it was obviously still weighing heavy on his mind. i'm totally confident he will achieve his goal before his next birthday.
if anyone out there has any tips on turning a reluctant creative writer into an enthusiastic one, i would love to hear them.
we love you sweet eddie! you are the salt of the earth and we couldn't feel anymore lucky that we get you as our kid.
