That's my girl!

I have asked my mother repeatedly over the years to remove the curse.  You may have heard of it:  "I hope one day you have a daughter just like you!"  I got one and I get it!

Last night however, I smiled when she sent me an email telling me her New Year's Resolutions.  Here is her list:

1. Be more organized.
2. Exersize
3. Right a book

Not bad resolutions :) I hope you will be her book editor.

Ahh yes, sometimes it is beautiful to see yourself in your children. Not always a bad thing!

Hopefully she spelled it "write", right?

Joey,
Looks like she needs a little editing, eh? ;)

Kathy,
For once, not a bad thing! (It's about time!)

Laurie,
:) Happy New Year to you, too!

Anonymous,
Sadly, no--I typed hers verbatim. She is a great speller when her grade depends on it but pretty lazy the rest of the time.

Love her list. She deserves a break on the spelling -- she's 9! And every artist in the heat of the creative moment is likely to make errors. She'll catch it on the second draft ;-)

Tracy,
Here's hoping! ;)
She will--as soon as she "types it up", her final draft will be OK--she has learned to recognize the underlined words in Word and lets the computer give her the correct spelling! *sigh*
