Back To The Future Blogfest

The Back to the Future Blogfest is being hosted by M. Pax, Suze, and Nickie.
So on Saturday morning before you've had your coffee, or in my case hot tea, you get a package from yourself dated ten years in the future. What does it contain?

Well, as I open this package I find the ELF's baby book. She has pictures with teeth, and then pictures with no teeth again and finally pictures with real teeth. She a beauty at 10 years old. She wins spelling bees and science fairs and rewrites fairy tales. And on the very last page of her book there is a note that says "See Beth? Your lack of parenting skills didn't screw her up at all. You do have a lack of parenting skills, but she's resilient!"

And under the book one more thing sits in the box. It's a page from the New York Times, and my name is on it. My hand writing scrolls across the bottom the page. "Keep writing. You'll get there."


  1. Way cool, Beth. Love that little note you gave yourself. Wohoo for NY TImes!

  2. Aww, this was very touching, Beth. I love your time capsule box. Nice to meet you through this hop! :)

  3. Nice!! Take your own advice...don't give up!! :)

  4. The last two sentences say it all! Keep writing!
    Nice to meet you!

  5. I'm sure your parenting skills are stellar. I mean, see how well your daughter turns out?

    Nice post, and it's very nice to meet you. Count me in as your newest groupie.

  6. Looks like a fabulous find.

  7. If you're worried about screwing up your kid, that's a sure sign you won't screw up your kid. And you're right, "Keep writing. You'll get there." :-)

    (Congrats on your fantastic news! Go you!

  8. Lol: all parents make it up as they go! Also Grandparents, but that's a way off for you I think :-)

  9. LOVE this! Yep, we parents need guidebooks, but thankfully we make it through ok :)
