I am Raising a Future NY Times Best Selling Author

,
Now...it is possible I say this because of her awesome poem that she Wrote...but let's face it ...we all know the truth! She had me "Gnome"!!!

Gnomes by Awesome Daughter Smith

I was in a garden. A gnome looked at me. Then another. Then another. Then all of them looked at me. They looked creepy. Then I looked at them. I thought I was in Hogwarts. But they weren't real gnomes. they were wind-up gnomes that talked. I didn't understand why they were alive. I shouldn't have gone in moms garden anyways.

The End!

Sniff Sniff....***Eyes Glistening and Heart Racing***...isn't she the best daughter ever! (and hahaha Hogwarts!)

That is so adorable...she is quite the artist too--those are some awesome gnomes {I just wrote about gnomes yesterday on my blog--too funny}

Eileen Astels Watson said...

That's awesome. I especially love the last line. We know where her poem came from!

Kiersten said...

If nothing else, she is DEFINITELY cuter than I am. Have her call me if she wants to do a collaborative book together or something.

Marybeth Poppins said...

CB...isn't she though!

Kimber...I think she is going to have a hard time choosing between art and writing...I think I will suggest children's books :)

Eileen...I know that was my favorite part. The best part of it is...I don't even have a garden! LOL

Kiersten...IDK...I'm kinda selfish and want to get published before she does. Does that make me a bad mom??? LOL

That is the cutest thing! I love that your kids are obviously influenced by your writing and your love of gnomes. Have an awesome weekend!

Elizabeth Spann Craig said...

She's a great poet, Marybeth. But I also noticed....a very good artist. I'm looking at the fish, worm, and hook---very good.

I have to wonder if your gnomes might be freaking her out a bit??? Too funny!

She's awesome! A chip off the old block!

Foursons said...

Quite the talent she has for writing!

Tabitha Bird said...

Too cute:) Can't wait to say, "I knew her when..."

Heart2Heart said...

This needs to be saved and kept. Perhaps published in a book later in life so she can share with her kids someday and she can say, see I wrote this when I was your age.

Great inspiration and I can see where she gets if from.

Frame it and put it on your wall! When she publishes her first book, you can give it to her for her office wall. :]
