My story about being bored:

The other day, Debbie released her homemade book trailer (which is totally awesome) and I watched it while my boys were in their rooms finishing their homework. After I watched it I knew my boys would LOVE it.

So I had it all set up and I waited. Because I knew, KNEW what my youngest would tell me the moment he walked out of his room (because he's been saying all the time lately). Sure enough, he shuffled out and said, "I'm bored."

I said, "Really? That's great!" That was when he looked at me oddly. "Because I have the perfect video for you to watch."

And he loved it. In fact, both boys liked it so much we had to watch it over and over and over again.

Check it out!



So, what makes you bored? (and don't you just love that potato?)

  6. Congrats, Debbie, for the publication of your book. Nice review by Publishers Weekly about your minimalist illustrations. Hoping to meet you reading your book in Indigo/Chapters book stoe in downtown and ofcourse, amusing the kids with singing your songs. Well done!

  7. That is a totally awesome trailer! Just too funny! As for being bored, I guess I'm blessed. I've been bored so few time in my life I don't remember them. There's just too much to do, to learn, to get bored. What does happen though is occasionally I get frustrated when there's something I want to do, but I don't have the materials or something gets in the way of doing it.

  9. What a terrific trailer! And of course I love the book, especially Debbie's illustrations. I put six copies on my Staff Pick shelf at the bookstore. Congrats to Debbie.

    Ironing bores me silly. Must be why I never iron.
