I'm contemplating my next project. I need a "new baby" to give my heart to, to learn from, to grow with. Something unique. I'm looking for an idea that will challenge and entertain me, a story kids will love and not find predictable.
That's a tall order. Kids are smart.
A couple weeks ago, my husband and I went on an afternoon date to the bakery. My daughter texted him. Their conversation went something like this:
daughter: Will you bring us cookies?
husband: Have you cleaned the rabbit cage yet?
husband: Send me a picture of a clean rabbit cage. Then I'll buy you cookies.
She sent this:
My tip: do not dumb anything down. Kids. Are. Smart.
P.S. - They got the cookies and the cage was clean by the time we got home. Win-win. :)
