More trouble with tribbles

The Six-Year-Old used to call these wadded up catalog pages "Kitty Asteroids." Now she calls them tribbles. And takes great joy in spreading them all over my house. (Photo: Shala Howell)

The Six-Year-Old, on our walk to school yesterday morning: “Uh oh. It’s raining tribbles.”

Mommyo: “Better duck.”

The Six-Year-Old, curiously: “Why?”

Mommyo: “I don’t want to get tribbled on.”

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.
