It Runs In The Family - My Daughter The Writer

Not sure if I've mentioned it here or not, but my beautiful seven-year-old daughter Annika is not just beautiful: she's smart and creative too. And she may have gotten a bit of my "writing gene."

She has written two stories in the past several months (very cute ones, of course). And today, one of them is featured at my dear friend Vonnie Blake's kids' writing blog, Polliwog Pages: Kids Write.

Thanks! And have a wonderful Easter weekend!

  4. That is adorable, only seven and writing already:)

  5. Love. It. She really DOES take after her mom, not just beautiful, but smart and creative, too!

    Hope you and yours had a fabulous Resurrection Day.


Thanks for stopping by. I would love to hear your thoughts - please share them!
