Breaking Radio Silence

I feel like I dreamt about writing this post.  Or maybe it's just deja vu.  Lots of stuff happens, things that professional bloggers would be putting up in a heart beat.  But I go silent.  After a while I don't know what to write about.  So, here's a "I haven't got anything special to report.  I'm just posting something to get back in the habit"post.

So, there's this baby I know who isn't a baby anymore.  She goes to the cupboard to find Nutella multiple times a day.  She likes drawing on herself, the walls, & when she's cheeky-monkey, me.

I think I'll keep her anyway.

Graham's First Publication

Graham has a poem that's being included in the Power of Poetry -- Poems From the North East anthology this fall.  He wrote it as a class exercise in personification and the staff at his school submitted it for publication.  (I think it's called "Frightening Lightning.")

The deadly lightning stung the world with just one fingernail!
It also killed all of Asia and it electrocuted 3000 towers just by tapping them.
When it punched the sea all the sea creatures, scuba divers, boats and other people died.
Suddenly the dangerous hand belonging to the lightning grabbed a forest and chopped it down.
It stepped on a telephone wire and gave it so much electricity that it exploded.
