Still toying with the idea of starting a parenting blog. Pretty sure I’m going to take the plunge; I think I’ve got the design down, but am still working on a fun name and tagline that will capture what I’m doing. I asked Amy to brainstorm with me. “Remember,” I said, “in brainstorming, there’s no right or wrong, so just spit out anything that comes to mind.”
Famous last words.
Amy’s first offering: “Don’t You Want Kids Like Mine?!”
Okay, maybe there is a right and wrong in brainstorming.
Once we got past her first idea, I furiously wrote down a bunch of thoughts and ideas. I don’t have the neatest handwriting on a good day; when I’m writing fast it can be downright illegible. I was still scribbling down ideas when Amy decided to start reading them out loud.
“Tales from a Power Lord? Mom, what are you talking about?!”
“It says Parenthood not Power Lord!” I said, incredulous that she could think I’d suggest such a title.
“Well, you talk a lot about parents being in charge so I figured you were taking it to the next level.”
“But I’m not taking it to that level. That’s insane!”
“You never know with you, Mom.”
