Today, we await the birth of our twelfth grand baby. Twelve! In the future I hope to sit around my twelve grandchildren and read to them one of my favorite picture books. My own little audience of ears. I would feel like queen of the Nana's.
They won't care that I've published articles and short stories, or that I haven't gotten that first book contract. All they'll care about is the story, and if I implement that storyteller's voice to make it a perfect read.
Here's to new grand babies on this day all over the world.
