I have a hodgepodge of stuff today.
I'll start with the story. This past weekend, I had a Halloween party for my son and his friends. These are eighth graders. Not little munchkins anymore. My son introduced me as "mom." So all the boys called me "mom."
One of the boys was a giant. Do you know how tall he was? Six foot nine!
I looked up at him. "Hi, tall man," I said.
He looked down at me. "Hi, little mom."
Nothing like making me feel shorter than I already am! At least he didn't make me try to give him a high five!
In other news, my book tour for Bubba and Squirt's Big Dig to China continues. Here are the stops from last week in case you didn't see them (Thanks to everyone who has been visiting and commenting!):

And lastly, I am participating in a challenge to raise awareness and funds for a severe neurological disorder called Leigh's Syndrome. Those of you who are friends with me on Facebook may have already seen it. The video tells a little about the condition. If you click to watch the video on YouTube, you can see the link for donations. One of my violin students knows a little girl who has it. If you can help by sharing the link or donating, (or creating your own video) the girl's family would appreciate it.
