"My favorite color is Quinicidrone Violet. It's the most vibrant color in my arsenal of acrylic paints. Bright and fun, it's like a party on a canvas."
"I'm 4'11". I can decorate an entire cake in less than five minutes. My favorite thing I still have from childhood is my copy of A Light In the Attic, by Shel Silverstein. My go-to dance move is the Roger Rabbit."
What My Children Have Taught Me
"I've learned that your kids' favorite things will become your favorite things, too. "Thanks to my son, I know more about trains than I ever would have dreamed. I know the parts of a train, where to find the best toy trains, and have watched more train videos than a person ever should."
Thanks to my daughter, I am well educated in the etiquette of tea parties and the importance of fairies, particularly the purple ones.
Luckily, I also know the fun you can have riding a train, especially if you're sitting next to a little boy who is grinning from ear to ear."
