Living with a children's author isn't as easy as it looks!

Countdown Wednesday

Today, we’re counting down the most fun things about doing author visits.

My Favorite Things About Author Visits

3. When Mom works on her PowerPoint for a long time. Uh… Wait a minute. No.  That’s NOT fun. It’s boring for me!

2. Packing up all the things Mom needs for author show and tell. Hmmm… Hold it. That’s not fun either, because of, “Get your nosy, little head out of that bag.”

1. Watching Mom leave. OMG! NO! That is the least fun of all.  Why can’t I come?

Mom’s Favorite Things About Author Visits.

3. Getting ready – reviewing the PowerPoint, picking out what to wear, and packing up all the stuff for author show and tell.

2. Seeing new schools in new places.  Mom says, “School is such a magical place.” and “Each school has its own special climate and personality.” and “Get your nosy, little head out of that bag!”

1. Talking to people who like to read and write.  Kids sometimes ask funny questions, that make Mom laugh. Grown-ups sometimes ask deep questions that make Mom think. And sometimes it’s the other way around!

Here’s my question: Why can’t I come?!

  1. I don’t get why you can’t come! You’re adorable, fun, entertaining, a good listener…wait. Are you a good listener? Well, girl. I guess you’re going to have to roll with it. Just think of it as “me time”. 🙂
    Hugs and more hugs…

    • Thanks, Gemma. Me-Time can be good, if Mom is in the next room, but I’m not sure I like it as much when she leaves with bags of author stuff. Sometimes I get scared and hide in the kitchen till she comes home. I AM adorable and fun and entertaining and a good listener. After listening, I’m just not sure what to do! But thanks for noticing!

      Love and licks,

  2. Awww, Cupcake, you can always tell Mom you’re going on vacation and you can come visit my cat, Tommy, and I…I’m sure he won’t mind sharing his food…;0)

  3. I did a deep thinking why you can’t go, Cupcake, and one my conclusions is: the children won’t listen anymore to your mom, but only have eyes for you 🙂

    • AngelsWhisper, YOU have your finger on the pulse of Mom’s audience! They would love me too much and she would be jealous. Sometimes, Mom says I am like the Pied Piper because bunches of kids follow me all over the place when we take a walk. Green with envy does not look good on her!

      Love and licks,

  4. I would ask the same question Cupcake 🙂

  5. LOL you are too cute, Cupcake! I love the photos, especially the one with your head in Mom’s bag 🙂 Our pups are always wondering why they can’t come with us too — I wish we could take them everywhere!

  6. aw… you are the cutest Cupcake! 🙂 Love the last picture. Perhaps if you talk long to mom she will let you come sometime for the children would love seeing you! 🙂

  7. […] has two author visits coming up. One this week and one next week. Both are call-backs, so she kind of knows what to […]

  8. […] Mom and I will be moving to a new place. She’ll be packing up bags and boxes and moving men will come and go a lot. I will try not to be afraid, but just in […]
