The Eight-Year-Old makes plans

At some point in the next couple of years, we plan to renovate our 1920s-era master bathroom. The Eight-Year-Old, naturally is full of ideas.

The Eight-Year-Old, surveying the bathroom in question: “Can we keep this tile in here?”

Mommyo, carefully: “I don’t know, sweetie. We aren’t going to change anything in the bathroom for a while, though.”

The Eight-Year-Old: “Good. I don’t mind that the tile’s cracked and looks like it was painted a different color in spots. I just like that it’s old. I think I could enter this apartment in Antiques Roadshow, once we clear out all this new stuff.”

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.
