Visiting the Coach


Eli over at Coach Daddy asked a bunch of people, some of whom were bloggers, if they wanted to be a small part of a collective post he was writing: "Parenthood in 6 Words."  I was one of the folks he asked to play along (thanks, Coach!).

If you'd like to take a look the post is here:
http://coachdaddyblog.wordpress.com/2013/05/14/parenthood-in-6-words/

If you know Eli already, I don't have to tell you he's hilarious, smart, dedicated to his family, and has a slight obsession with food (sorry, it had to be said).

If you don't know him, poke around his site a little and I'm sure you'll find something you like fairly quickly. There's good stuff to be found over there. :)

That sounds like fun!

RACHEL TaoOfPoop said...

I think it would be hard to sum up in six words. You covered a lot of bases with yours!

Sandee said...

That was a ton of responses too. I loved them all. Right on the money too.

Have a terrific day. ☺

Michelle Bowman said...

6 words, that had to be interesting. Will go for a poke.

Coach's blog spin on Hemmingway's 6-word story idea.

Some of them made me laugh. :)

mail4rosey said...

Of course now my mind is running through other six-word-sentences to describe motherhood, lol.

mail4rosey said...

Bet you'd nail it. :)

mail4rosey said...

It's much easier to write 600 words than six! Thanks so much for the shout-out, Rosey. Glad to have to many new visitors!

mail4rosey said...

I don't know, there are days I'd much rather write 6 than 600. :)

Veronica Lee said...

Spot on, Rosey!!! Yep, unconditional love it is!!!

Mine would be "Brings out the worst in me" LOL!

Carole said...

I liked your one Rosey. I can only judge by my sisters but I think they would say

"Tougher than we thought but rewarding"

mail4rosey said...

Thanks, Monica. :)

mail4rosey said...

Woot! :)

mail4rosey said...

Thanks for visiting. :)

mail4rosey said...

And I'm going to go visit Butterbottom. :)

mail4rosey said...

Gracias. :)

mail4rosey said...

The kids should write a 6 word sentence about the parents. Depending on the age, those could be some doozies. ;)

mail4rosey said...

It was fun. :) Thanks for swinging by to read it. :)

mail4rosey said...

Thanks, Katherine. :)

mail4rosey said...

Thanks a ton. :)

mail4rosey said...

No it wouldn't, it would be 'brings out the best in me,' LOL. Half full glasses are much nicer. :)

mail4rosey said...

Thanks, Carole, and your sisters would be oh so right! :)

coach-daddy said...
