My Mom is a good role model. When I get off the bus I run home and give my Mom a big hug. After I get a snack I go downstairs and eat it because my Mom doesn’t like to hear me chew. My Mom is an author. She has written 4 or 5 books. When she was little she wrote some poems. She showed me her poems, and they were really good. They were stapled on a few pieces of paper. That wasn’t all her poems. She wrote those poems when she was 8 or 9 years old.
My Mom is a good role model to me because she is a hard worker, she’s kind to people, she comforts me when I’m sad, and she helps me when I’m sick. I don’t want to be an author when I grow up but rather than that I want to be just like her. I love her and my whole family a lot but this time I picked her to write about. I love my Mom a lot!
The third sentence is my favorite.
EDIT: I forgot to mention this was an essay for school that she brought home last week. I didn’t make her write it for the blog. 🙂
And speaking of those 4 or 5 books I’ve written, 2 of them are out of print, and I have boxes of them in my closet. And since I wore myself plumb out making Valentines and Scrabble magnets yesterday, today’s Cambodia Trip Fundraiser is going to involve something I’ve already “made.”
Today only, you can buy 1 copy of From Blushing Bride to Wedded Wife + 1 copy of Changing Your World One Diaper at a Time for $6.00 (total including shipping–U.S. addresses only). I’ll sign ’em and everything (okay, not really sure what “everything” would entail). All proceeds to the Cambodia Fund.
EDIT (11:08am): ACK! Forgive me!! I had the Paypal link totally wrong and was confusing everyone! Just click on the word “Paypal” below, and type in $6 as your donation, and I’ll send you 2 books!! SORRY!!
Have a great day, and please, if you’re going to have a bowl of Doritos, eat them downstairs. Thanks.
HAPPY, HAPPY FIRST BIRTHDAY TO MY BEAUTIFUL NIECE, MIA NOELLE! Aunt Marla loves and misses you!!
