I can’t believe I just said that

Overheard in the Caterpickles Transport Pod (while parked in a parking lot):

Mommyo: “The Four-Year-Old, don’t eat the whole bag of M&Ms or you won’t have room for your hot dog.”

Mommyo immediately begins banging her head against the steering wheel.

Daddyo, patting my arm: “That’s ok, honey, we can work on that. Would you like me to drive?”

The Four-Year-Old: “Mommyo, does that hurt?”


About Shala Howell

I write about wildly curious kids, rabbits who hunt dragons, and 1880s Boston. When I’m not scratching my head over pesky characters who refuse to do things how I want them done or dreaming of my next book (which will of course be much easier to write than the current one), I blog about life with a very curious Ten-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, muse about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.blog, or tweet about books, writing, science, & things that make me smile at @shalahowell.
