How to be a graduate student in Children's Lit

  1. Enroll in a class called "Picturebook."
  2. Purchase repositionable glue.
  3. Using four colors of construction paper create a scary picture of a protagonist being attacked by birds (Exhibit A).
  4. Now use the same four colors and the same protagonist and create a happy picture (Exhibit B).
  5. Seriously reconsider what you're doing with your life when you have difficulty with steps three and four.

Best Aunt Ever

I've been trying to teach my nephew to say Annyong* AD style.

Of course this was after I taught him secret combination type handshakes.

*Annyong is Korean for hello, which features as a long running joke in the television series Arrested Development
