So for the last two years I have been writing a book. A young adult fiction book not based on anything in particular but a book that has made me proud. Today I finally finished it. I have been working hard to finish it but at the same time I didn't want to just end it and call it a day which is why it has taken so long for me to finish. I am hoping that I can publish it myself or perhaps send a copy to a publisher and have them publish it but let's just be real about this. I thought that I may include a little blurb from part two of the book just to give you a little idea of what the book is about...

“So?” Cooper asked. He seems nervous.

“We are having a baby.” I said.

“Are you serious?” Cooper leaned over and gave me a kiss and a hug.

“But…” I began.

“But what?”

“I want to make some things clear.”

“Okay. What things?” Cooper seemed a little nervous again.

“I am not as uppity about this like you are and I want to make sure that you understand that.” I said.

“I do understand that.”

“No I am not sure that you do. You are so excited about this and I am nervous and worried. I want you to respect the fact that it may take some time for me to get use to the idea of me becoming a mother at such a young age.”

“But you aren’t that young Scout. You’re almost seventeen.”

“Okay that is barely old enough to drive let alone bring a baby into this world. What I am trying to say is that I have always wanted to have a child I just never thought that I would be having a baby so young and unprepared. And I know that we are prepared financially but I need to make sure that I am prepared emotionally. And like I said it may take time and for that to happen I need you to be on my side. I need you to allow me to get to that point on my own and not be so happy and talking about it all the time.” Cooper was looking a little sad. “Don’t get me wrong Cooper I love that you are so excited about this but I will be to that point too. I am just not there right now. Who knows in a month I may be jumping from the roof tops excited and singing hallelujah. But right now I need to take this slow and be ready on my own.” Cooper didn’t say anything and that was making me a tad more than a little nervous.

That is just a small part of what is all to come when I finish editing...

What Mr F and Mr Bunches are up to tonight. (Life With Unicorns)

Mr Bunches has been practicing his writing. Here is Dad and Baby

and here is Kiss and Mom. (Mr Bunches didn't ask me how to spell kiss. He just went on his own.) (Also that thing to the left was a false start on a K.)

Mr F, meanwhile, has been preoccupied with eating just one bite of each cheese puff:

He takes one out, eats a bite out of it, and puts it back. And he won't eat the rest of it. Apparently, Mr F is Ramona Quimby now.*

*That is because Ramona Quimby once ate only the first bite of each apple and wrecked an entire box of apples.
