Dee Tenorio is here today with a fun meme for all of us, and she’s offering a great prize if we participate! I hope all of you will play. Also, be sure to check out Kris’ review of Kiss Me Again, her September 16th release, and Ames’ review of Betting Hearts, one of the novels in her backlist.
Why I’m In Trouble…
I found a shirt in the store the other day that fits either of my babies to a t–it’s a depiction of a notebook paper duct taped to the baby’s belly that reads:
Why I’m in trouble:
√ Won’t share anything
√ Won’t give Mommy a break
√ Keep getting caught
√ Won’t take a nap
√ Made a huge mess
I bought it immediately because, seriously, she does all those things every day. If they’d drawn their smiling little faces and written their names on it, it couldn’t have described my daughters any better. I plan to take pictures of it and mail it to my parents so they can share in the cuteness and they can lie to me by laughingly claiming that shirt wasn’t absolutely perfect for my oh so innocent children.
There’s no way they could get through a line of bull like that without cracking.
But once I realized that not-so-subtle truth, it got me to thinking. My God, what would my shirt say?
It’s like one of those crazy memes no one is happy to get but kind of get a kick out of reading. Because truth is, I’m generally in trouble–the babies come by it naturally. Mom isn’t here, most of the time, to smack me on the back of the head for anything, but I’m still in trouble because I’ve got to figure my way out of the things I’ve done.
Though, it should be said, there is this evil/fun moment when you realize that you’re actually getting away with this stuff. But I won’t admit I wrote that if you tell my mother.
So, that said, here’s my “Why I’m In Trouble List”:
√ Burned dinner (again)
√ Wrote a love scene (again)
√ Read a book instead of cleaning (again)
√ Forgot to eat and screwed up blood sugar (hypoglycemia is a mean mistress)
√ Screwed up diet with chips, cake, cookies or some form of pastry (er…again, I overcompensate when I start to lose consciousness)
√ Accidentally stayed up all night reading excellent novel (you guessed it…again.)
There’s probably more reasons, but they might be TMI for a blog post. So, barring anything you wouldn’t DO in front of your parents, what’s your top three “Why I’m in Trouble” list? (Three is a minimum, more is always welcome!) Any one who posts is automatically entered in my random drawing for an e-copy of any book in my backlist!
About The Author: Dee Tenorio is a voracious reader, mother of three and a wife for thirteen years–which means her ovaries do overtime doing laundry, finding keys and lost socks and diapers that have mysteriously disappeared to the sound of wild toddler giggles. Since she’s written stories from the time she was little, she thought it was a pretty good idea to get into writing romance–sensual, romantic and sometimes funny. After all, she’s currently living her own happily ever after. Dee can be found most days on her blog, www.deetenorio.com/Blog
