Bedtime Stories: The Cat Who Wore a Pot On Her Head.”

What was your favorite book as a child? Did it influence the
person you are now?

When I was a kid, the one book that made me laugh was “The Cat Who Wore a Pot on Her Head.” There were times when my parents probably thought I wore a pot on my head. The cat, Bendomolena, liked to wear a pot on her head but the side effect was that she could not hear any directions. Hilarity ensues! Nothing went according to her mom’s plans. For example, she told her siblings to nail the chairs to the wall and invite a bear into the house. Her mom was also very nice about all of the mishaps. The mom let Bendomolena march to the beat of her own drummer, just like my own mom.
I was in my own world or reading a book. Whatever I was doing, it did not involve listening. So I didn’t have know how to listen effectively. I was about seven then. Do young kids listen?
When I was about 21, I understood what listening to people entailed. I would like to think that being a good listener makes me a better writer.

The kid and I wearing pots on our heads. 🙂 Good times!

I could be the worst cook in America. My boyfriend tells his friends about my cooking disasters. I'm glad someone is amused. I like movies, music, comic books and corny jokes.

  1. Oh my – I haven’t heard of that one. Dr. Seuss was my early favorite. Then I moved on. My favorite with my kids – a toss-up between the Bear books and Skippy Jon Jones.

    1. Oh yes, I loved Dr. Seuss and Shel Silverstein. My oldest one loved this book. I think it was called “I love you all day long.” It was about a mommy pig who has to leave her baby pig at daycare.
