Life is busy. Always. With lots going on…but, that also brings with it lots of ideas for stories, and particularly characters.
To the right is a good pic of my fourth – Samuel, with his fabulous smile.
Birth order does matter. Remember that when you’re writing. Personalities are shaped by a child’s enviroment, and that includes where they fit into the grand scheme of their families. To the right are my second & third kids, determination firmly planted on their faces. Their mission? Shoot anyone who is floating by. Very fun. Very focused. and VERY WET.
My oldest and middle are in the next picture with their dad. We’re entering the teenage years with our firstborn and, boy, do the dynamics change. It’s difficult to understand it until you’re living it though. He’s a great kid – obviously getting tall (and quite proud of it), but the relationship is changing in new ways.
So, ever have a lame blog day…or two….or ten? At least mine has cute pictures. 🙂
