I'm going through some interesting feelings I'm not sure how to put into words.
Lately my oldest (who is spending most of the summer with her father) has texted me or came home and asked "Mom do you have something else published?"
My reply is usually no, but she keeps asking even when she has not read the pieces or is unable to read them because she is only ten and I'm a picky mother.
I'm halfway glad she is taking an interest in me in this way- she is seeing me in ways she sees other authors which is a really strange feeling for me as her mother.
The other half wonders if she is disappointed in me because the answer is no.
This is my little girl, she is growing up too fast, and as a mother I want her to be proud of me, but as an author I'm not sure how to feel about it. Perhaps she is not disappointed in me, but is just curious.
