I am participating in the March Slice of Life Challenge: A slice a day for all of March. You should do it too! Thank you, Two Writing Teachers! Readers, check out their site, and start slicing!
I snuggled the kids until everyone was peacefully asleep. I made some tea, opened my notes from today’s Jennifer Serravallo conference and started to dig in. I wondered which part of the day I would slice: Funny travel stories? Dinner jokes? Gems that came up in my notes from the amazing learning? (I mean, Jennifer Serravallo, folks!)
Ideas started to form.
And then the coughing started.
So sometimes a slice is just that – an interrupted brainstorm, an untouched mug of tea, an open laptop, and a coughing child. . . because when your 6 year old is recently diagnosed with asthma, the coughing is even less fun than normal. There is only so much waiting you can do — waiting and listening to that cough cough cough — before you make your slicing excuses and head upstairs to check on the breathing, to stop the coughing.
