The Mouse Who Came for Christmas

Yesterday I picked Austin up from school. As we drove to the home supply store by way of the dry cleaners and an early dinner,

As he fastened his seat belt and stowed his backpack, Austin told me it was one of the best days of his life.

For two reasons.

(Brace yourself.)

The first reason is his butt stopped hurting (don’t ask). And two because his girlfriend loves him again. She’d stopped the week before but apparently had come to her senses over the weekend.

Now here is why yesterday was one of the best ideas of MY life.

The next thing Austin told me about was his idea for a book. It’s a Christmas story about a mouse. Austin asked me to help him write the story and he’d draw the pictures.

Bestill my writing mama’s heart.

Hope you’re having one of the best days of your life too. Yesterday, today, and always.
