What my children think about me having an agent

April 19, 2013

I HAVE NOT STOPPED SHOUTING ABOUT THE FACT THAT I HAVE AN AGENT! AND I AM EXCITED!

My kids are not impressed.

Me: Guys! I have an agent!

Them: So you have a book published?

Me: No. It’s different. You’ll know when I get a book published. Plus there will, you know, be a book.

Them: Oh, right. What’s for dinner?

Me: I don’t know.

Dave, yelling from bathroom construction upstairs: I got stuff to make French Bread Pizzas!

Kids: Nooooo! We hate French Bread Pizza!

Me: Are you serious? What kind of kid hates French Bread Pizza? I can make you tempeh….

Kids: Nooooo!

Kids walk away, sobbing.

Me, to no one: I have an agent!

    lol, that’s so funny. I’m sure my kids would react in a similar way… they just want to see my books published.

    Congratulations on getting an agent :D

    Ha! I’ve got four kids, ages 10, 9, 7, and 4.

    The 10 year-old said, “That’s really cool. Do you know the score of the Reds game?”

    The 9 year-old wondered quietly when we’d be going to Hollywood.

    The 7 year-old (our only daughter) told her BFF “she wouldn’t forget her when we were famous”.

    And the 4 year-old, of course, smiled and asked if I’d help him build a castle with his new bricks.

    If it helps, *I’m* thrilled that you have an agent! ;-)

    Yay, Jason! I love that. I love knowing other people with four kids. And your kids (at least your older kids) are smooshed even closer in age than ours.

    I feel like we need to come up with some kind of we-have-four-kids-and-the-same-agent handshake. Get right on that.
