While I’m blogging this week, I have one eye on my keyboard and one ear glued to the radio. I can’t wait to exhort the old-fashioned, tried-and-true expression: “Stop the Presses!” Yes, I am on “Royal Baby Watch,” along with a majority of female correspondents who hail from all corners of the globe.

When the temperatures start to soar, there’s a running joke in our house. Well, actually, not so much a “running” joke as a crawling, sweating, dripping joke. We always say if we think it’s bad, imagine what Annie must be feeling! Annie is our sweet, petite, incredibly fluffy tuxedo cat.

Children live a great deal of their lives wrapped up in wonder and fantasy. For us grown-ups, we only allow ourselves an occasional dip into the pool of imagination and “let’s pretend.” In my household, my two kids are always breaking into spontaneous live-action games inspired by Percy Jackson (aka, “The Lightning Thief”), “Star Wars,” Harry Potter, and “iCarly.” (They are an eclectic duo.)
