Cranky Complaints-Lady Buys BOOKS! (or tries to)

The Journey to Motherhood, with illustrations by Naomi Rivka, age 7

(she’s 8 now, but I found this in an older notebook…)

story 001

One day I became really tired and lazy.  “Please tell me why!” I yelled but I already knew, I was expecting a baby!

Nine months past [she means “nine months passed”], I stayed home from class.  The day had come at last!

I took a year of [off] from work, to hang out with my little baby girl, Veonica!  I named her Veronica Elizabeth.

The story actually goes on and the main character becomes a grandmother, and then a great-grandmother.  And nobody in the family wears more than a bikini, because – of course – they’re all mermaids.  There are no males in the story.  Yet I find it oddly (very oddly) touching.

Going through a ton of paperwork because the journey is well and truly underway now.  In twelve days, we will be en route to our new home in the Holy Land!!! 

Please follow our adventures over here at my aliyah blog if I’m not around here at this blog much…
