My son Jack is seven today (!). I love this age. He was given a choice of having a birthday party with all his friends or going to visit The Mystic Aquarium for the first time, I am so relieved that he chose the aquarium. I'm not a fan of the whole kid party scene. I made cupcakes for his class, and later today I'll pick up his cake (decorated with a baseball diamond) and some balloons. Pizza for dinner. His brother, his sister, his parents. Sounds like a party to me. Holy cow, I can't believe he's seven!
AWP is fast approaching. I'm going and excited to meet my publisher for the first time in person. I have even made tentative plans to attend certain panels and I'm so happy to be rooming with my pal, Dana. Are you going? Will I see you there? I hope so.
