Wordless Wednesday: My blog might be taking over my life

For Mother’s Day, The Six-Year-Old, Daddyo, and I traipsed down to Harvard Square for a little sight-seeing and shopping. Of course, we popped into the Harvard Coop. Doesn’t everybody?

While we were there, The Six-Year-Old wanted to try on “one of those fancy Harvard hats.” She looked so cute in it, naturally I asked her to pose for a picture.

So she did.

Thanks to Caterpickles, I may never be able to get a picture with my daughter’s face in it again. My Fifty-Year-Old self is probably going to be pretty mad about that.

What’s Wordless Wednesday?

Recently I discovered Wordless Wednesdays through the blog, 5 Minutes for Mom. Basically, on Wednesdays all around the Internet, bloggers post their favorite photos, ideally without any words to accompany them, but often with 1-2 sentences of context. I’m not a photo-blogger. I’m more of a word girl, so I thought Wordless Wednesday would be fun.

About Shala Howell

I spent two decades helping companies like Bell Labs, Juniper Networks, and a genetic testing company that was later acquired by CVS translate some of the world’s most complicated concepts into actionable, understandable English. Now I'm working on a much harder problem -- fostering children’s curiosity and engagement in the scientific, artistic, and linguistic world that surrounds them. The first book in my Caterpickles Parenting Series, What’s That, Mom?, focuses on how to use public art to nurture children’s curiosity in the world around them. My next book will focus on science, and how parents without a science degree can answer their curious child's questions without enrolling in a college level refresher course. In the meantime, you can find me blogging about life with a very curious Eleven-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, chatting about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.blog, and tweeting about books, writing, science, & things that make me smile at @shalahowell.

    I have a couple who give me a hard time about getting their picture. I think I’ve taken 37,000 pictures of the top or back of my oldest daughter’s head as she tries to avoid getting her picture taken. My son just refuses to smile. Hopefully you’ll get some pictures with your little one’s face soon. 🙂

    Thanks for linking up over at Tales of a Pee Dee Mama

  4. Which is why I am a firm believer in two pictures of every object, thank goodness for digital cameras. You need personal shots, then blog shots. 🙂 And tell the Six Year Old that I love her all white bohemian outfit! So cute with those sandals and well, the hat just makes the outfit perfect.
