We tread the fine line between having everything and coming up short. We prioritized Claire’s education, a private school, to challenge her and kept her out of trouble resulting from too much idle time.

Claire wanted to be Daenerys Targaryen, for her Halloween party. I choked on the price of a store-bought outfit. Opening my sewing cabinet, I pulled lengths of fabric, pinned and sewed and created costume fit for the Mother of Dragons. She twirled before the mirror, ecstatic with her one-of-a-kind creation.

Then she dealt my death blow.

“Where are my babies, Drogon, Rhaegal, and Viserion?” she asked.


Keep on writing.

  1. Great story! I think “Ty” makes some beanie baby dragons you could pawn off as the three baby dragons. Or, you could give her boiled eggs and tell her they haven’t hatched, yet!

  2. Aren’t children so adorable? Not. As you title says, it never does seem to be enough what we give them!
    I have it on my agenda to watch the whole dang series this winter – even though everyone bitched and moaned about the ending. Then, I shall read the books. Eventually (at least that way, I shall know how to pronounce all these friggen names!
