Driving while parenting, again

The Prius swerves into a parking lot one cold and rainy afternoon, causing a distressing amount of rattling in the back seat.

Mommyo, anxiously: “The Six-Year-Old, are you alright?”

The Six-Year-Old, calmly: “Yes, I was trying to hang on to my lower jaw, but you turned too fast so I dropped 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.
