My son celebrates his birthday Monday, February 22. In his honor, and for an upcoming Chicken Soup book for new moms, this morning I wrote about the days leading up to his birth, and the aftermath, and sent it off this morning both to the anthology and to Steve. I called it Birthday Bonanza, since it's about the unanticipated benefit of being born on what was then a school holiday, George Washington's birthday.
This next week I plan to complete the story about Cousin Neicie, and two Christmas tales, one about Christmas Eve at Owl Drug Store when I was fourteen, and the other, an "as told to" about a friend's recent experience during the holiday blizzard in NYC.
