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


More…. I LOVE more. It’s my favorite thing.

More treats.

More sweaters.

More walks at the park.

More toys.

More naps.

More playing. More. More. More.

Mom loves more, too. More ideas.

More time.

More writing.

More submitting.

More acceptances. More. More. More.

She’s thinking about doing more learning with 2 challenges in January. If she joins 12×12 and does Storystorm, she will end up with 30 more ideas and 12 more first drafts.

That’s a lot of …more.

Comments on: "Inspirational Quote of the Week" (45)

  1. more is a super word… and it should be not allowed for things like baths, da vet or ear cleaning ;O)

  2. yes, yes, yes

  3. More, more, more! More treats! I’m always ready for more walks, then I need more naps.

  4. Cuppycake, speaking of MORE, we couldn’t love you MORE if we tried! You are such a cutie in your sweaters and that sweet expression on your face – well – I hope Santa Paws is EXTRA SPECIAL good to you this year and brings you lots of MORE!

    Hugs, Teddy

  5. Cupcake…I feel the same way that Teddy does. I couldn’t love you more either, if I tried. It’s always a lot of fun when you visit me and I wish I were a good sport about wearing anything- because we could have a fashion parade! I hope your mommy is just ablaze with ideas and stories and we get to see them in print along with you. XXX

    • Thanks, KI. Our wishes are the same. Meanwhile, some kitties don’t need embellishment with outfits. They’re already so beautiful! That’s you!

      Love and licks,

  6. More. Good one. Sounds like Sโ€™more. Wait WHAT?!
    Itโ€™s not for lack of trying. Your mom does MORE to get โ€˜er done than anyone I know. ๐Ÿ€ โค๏ธ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

    • Thanks, G. Plus thanks for saying S’mores. Nobody loves S’mores more than Mom. It is hell to pay if we ever run out of marshmallows around here. #notcool

      Love and licks,

  7. Wow! You sure have quite a collection of toys! But I bet you get more!!!

  8. I love that rose filled headband of horns!!! Boomer

  9. We love the idea of MORE too but mom says MORE doesn’t always mean good things. MORE food at one time can make us barf. No, we don’t want that. MORE fun is a good thing.


  10. Woo-boo! Sounds like good times coming for yโ€™all!

    More is mostly good. Naps, toys, treats, sweaters, acceptance letters, story ideas, and naps did I say naps? ~ nose nudges Belle Pup

    Oh Cupcake we loved your sweaters and your zoomies!!! We hope your Mom gets all the “mores” she needs ๐Ÿ™‚ Had to pop by and say “hi”.
    Marty and the Gang

    • Thanks, M and the gang! Zoomies are so much fun at the dog park in my apartment complex. Pretty much every other minute of my outdoor life, I’m on my leash. Apparently, I’m unpredictable.

      Love and licks,

  13. Love, love, love your header headband! It was my favorite on your Insta!!! More is good… especially when it comes to your toys and street naps and more acceptances for your Mom! I like “more” when it comes to Hershey’s Kisses!

    • Thanks, Pix. Good point about more Hershey Kisses. Yum. Also nose kisses, paw kisses, slurpy kisses, and more ALL kinds of kisses! xoxo

      Love and licks,

  14. We don’t know who came up with the stupid saying that less is more, but we think you have the more part down! I loved to see you playing in your yard, and Lucy even barked when she heard you running, Cupcake. And Mommy says she hopes your Mommy gets lots more “Accepted” stamped on her stories.

    Sounds good to me! I would especially love more of the good things in life!

  16. More looks particularly good on you, Cupcake! LOVE your floral antlers. Too cute.

  17. Wait… I thought less was more.

  18. I like your alarm clock there. I wish I could sleep as late as 30:44. Mom says I DO! Harumph!

    Katie Isabella

    • Ha! It’s actually Mom’s stopwatch for when she does writing. She sets it for an hour and it counts down. Lately, she just tells amazon Alexa to time out an hour. You should do a 30:44 nap sixteen times a day! You’re a kitty!

      Love and licks,

  19. Cupcake, I hope you & your Mom received received more of everything you wished for this holiday season. We look forward to seeing Mom in StoryStorm & 12×12. I hope more ideas & stories are about you! Merry Christmas from the Two Orange Pups!

    • Thanks, PT. Mom is all signed up for Storystorm and is waiting patiently for 12×12 to open. She’ll be there. It remains to be seen what she gets done, but she’ll be there.

      Love and licks,

  20. Charlee: “We’ve heard that less is more, but it sounds like maybe more might be more. What do you think, Chaplin?”
    Chaplin: “More is more.”
    Charlee: “I guess that’s settled then!”
