memoir meme and cold pizza

First things first. Little Man woke up at 7:45am (!!!!) and now we are eating cold pizza for breakfast. He's on his third piece.

Okay, on to business. I was tagged by FXSmom at FragileWhat? Now, she left a comment claiming that this would be easy. But it is far from easy for me, the chronically verbose writer --especially when it comes to talking about myself or my Punkin. I want to include where I've lived, what I've learned, where I'm going, being a mother, a daughter, and a friend. That cannot be done in six words. But I'm up for the challenge. And I may come up with more, as this intrigues me. I found a book the other day that was a similar topic. Seemed like good fodder for writing workshops. Not Quite What I Was Planning: Six Word Memoirs by Writers Famous and Obscure (Harper Collins).

The Rules:

Write your own six-word memoir.
Post it on your blog and include a visual illustration if you like.
Link to the person who tagged you in your post.
Tag six more blogs with links.
Don't forget to leave a comment on the blogs you tagged inviting them to play along.

My Memoir:

Child of God, hopeful and strong.

I tag:

Lion @ Soundalong
Lirty @ the starving artist
Whitterer @ Whitterer On Autism
Mr. Esquire @ Esquire Within
Haley-O @ the cheaty monkey

I'm sorry it wasn't easy. I was trying to be optimistic. Guess I suck at optimistic huh. But what you came up with rocked!!!

I just finished skimming through all your blogs...very interesting! I can't believe how much your Punkin looks like Evan and Kyle.
I laughed when I read about you holding Punkin up-side-down. I didn't keep very good track of my three older kids development; I had forgotten about the whole up-side-down thing. I used to hold Kyle like that when we were out and he was starting to "lose it." It would sometimes work.
Thank you for sharing your story :)
