Pop On Over and Say Hi!
This is the new dude in my life. My daughter, who came to me when she was twelve, made a detour in life that had me in a whirl. Summer after graduation from high school, this little guy came into her life. Now nine months later, he's in my mine. I'm pleased to introduce baby Toney, a little guy at 5 lbs. 10 oz. born on May 15th.
I feel the farthest thing in the world from a (eep, I can't even say it) grandmother, but I guess I am. He's pretty special. And he's helping daughter realize she does need us, and he's helping his daddy realize there are more things in the world than video games - we all can celebrate Toney's dad's new job. It's a rough road ahead for these young people, but with support and love, and this little guy, I think they may make it.
And if you feel like it, I'm guest posting on Marilyn Almodovar's blog today. She posed the question "What makes a strong female lead in Ya books?" I posed the question to my students. You might enjoy their answers. Go here.
