Guhls, As Described by Caden-5yr

‘Guhls’ is how Caden-5yr says the word ‘girls.’  He’s in kindergarten this year, and loves learning letters and numbers. Just as much, though, is his interest in studying the guhls in the class.  Just now he sat on the couch next to me and starting talking about them. A few of his observations:

“Guhls wear skirts.”

“Actually, some guhl DOGS even wear skirts.”

“They wear guhl shoes, but sometimes they wear shoes that look like boy shoes.”

“Some like to play basketball, like you, Mom.”

“Some guhls like to play football, like you, Mom.”

“They like flowers.”

“Some play guhl things and swing on swings.”

“They like pink toys.”

“They say nice things like, ‘I like that.’”

“They chew on their hair and make it spitty.”

“I like everything about guhls.”

“Mom. That’s all about guhls that I can think of.” *

*and for this, I am extrememly grateful.

Your words are ALWAYS helpful. I appreciate them. Finally reading “A Love for Larkspur” — don’t take my procrastination as dismissiveness. I’ve been wanting to read it since the second it arrived but was in the middle of “The Time Traveller’s Wife” for like … 3 years.

Ranting = not much.

I’m reading it, starting … NOW.

LOL – give him a few years. (Sorry, but as the mother of 3 boys I wouldn’t be a friend if I didn’t warn you!) :)

I finished reading your book THAT NIGHT. Was up until 4am and was exhausted the next day but couldn’t put it down.

Loved it. You know by now, I’m a dreamer. It spoke to that in me and made me laugh out loud several times. Your comedic timing comes through perfectly.

Suffice to say – loved it! When can I expect another!?

I was imagining Caden while reading this. Cherish those moments. They are gone before you know it. Glad your back to writing, I’ve missed the boys stories!!!
