“Mommyo, why does Santa have the same wrapping paper as us?”

Remember when The Six-Year-Old used to be so excited about what was in those presents under the tree that she tore into them without paying any attention at all to the paper they were wrapped in?

Yeah. Those days were pretty great.

About Shala Howell

Writer of things ranging from optical network switching white papers to genetic testing patient education materials to historical fiction set in an 1880s asylum. 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), my writerly self can be found blogging about life with a very curious Ten-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, or musing about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.wordpress.com.
