Wordless Thursday: Bundled up

I know. It’s supposed to be Wordless Wednesday, but the Columbus Day holiday is throwing me off. You’d think after 12 years of living up north I’d be used to getting a random day off in October, but I’m not.

Anyway, look what I found when I got to my writing desk this morning. Fall weather hit us all of a sudden yesterday and I guess The Six-Year-Old was worried my writing bunny would get cold.

“Hey lady, reptile over here. I kind of need that shell for warmth. Can I have it back now?”

Is it just me, or does the bunny look sad now that she’s lost her coat?

Oh the things I’ll do to put off writing in the morning…

Happy Thursday, y’all.

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.

    You should be used to the day off in October from your childhood. It was called Fair Day (because we got tickets to attend the state fair) in our school district back then, but it always fell on Columbus Day.
