Tales from Spring Break Round Three, Part Four

"Hey, you want water too?"

Mommyo, after The Five-Year-Old has brought her a glass of water unasked: “How did you know I wanted water just then?”

The Five-Year-Old, proudly: “I read your brain like a chapter book.”

The truly disconcerting thing is, I kind of believe it.


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.
