This week for manic Monday, FROST is the word. For more Morgen and MM's please go to to his blog- It's A Blog Eat Blog World.
I'm a little late posting my MM, mostly because of the back ache I've had since last Friday but also because MM writer's block. I hope this is not a portent of things to come... because NaNoWriMo is going to suck big time *snort*.
Anywho, the first thing that came to mind when I thought of the word frost was a time about 5 years ago, when Anna Jon and I attended a family member's 8th birthday party. Anna was about 1 1/2 years old and sitting on my lap, and I shared small spoons full of ice cream and cake with her. After we were done having dessert, we all sat around the table and enjoyed stories of every day life sprinkled with family stories and teasing. Anna had decided that I wasn't done with dessert. As she sat on my lap, she scooped up the frosting that remained on my plate (because I was trying to spare my waistline some extra calories) and proceeded to FROST the lower half of my face with it. I gasped and everyone turned to see me laughing and thanking Anna for sharing, meanwhile little 18 month old Anna had a very satisfied smile on her face.
To this day, that story always warms my heart, even in the midst of feeling a little frosty from having to put the now 6 1/2 year old booger in time out. ;)
