Children Are Helpful Critics

September 12, 2012

Scene: Driving in the Car

Child 1: “Mom, my teacher asked why you aren’t blogging.”

Me: “What? Really?”

Child 1: “Yes. So why aren’t you?”

Child 2: “My friend’s mom asked me, too.”

Me: “Uh, hmmmmm. I guess I have writer’s block.”

Child 3: “What is that?”

Me: “That is when you just don’t know what to write about, I guess.”

Child 1: “But you write about us. And we are awesome and funny.”

Child 3: “Ohhhh. I know. Write about Beef Jerky.

Me: “Beef jerky???”

Child 3: ” Yes! BEEF JERKY! Everyone loves beef jerky.”

Other children enthusiastically agree.

Child 3: “Write that on your blog. That we love beef jerky!”

Child 1: “You know what else you should do? Stop at the store right now and buy us some beef jerky. The you could take a photo of us eating it and put that on your blog too!”

Me: “I’m not stopping at the store.”

Child 1: “Well, it wont be as good without a picture. But you might as well write it anyway.”

Me: “It sounds kind of boring.”

Child 3: “Beef jerky is not boring.”

Child 1: “Everyone will love it.”

Child 2: “Or you could write about how you were fixing the broken leg on the coffee table and how you glued that clamp thing right to the leg. Because that was funny.”

Annnnnnd scene.
