My Alternative PB Titles for #NaPiBoWriWee*

Inspired by my two-year old, these are the books I could have written this week.

  1. An Encyclopedia of Tantrums
  2. The Apple Cinnamon Song
  3. Yes, That Is a Trapezoid
  4. The Toddler That Woke Up at 5 am and Ruined Daddy’s Writing Time
  5. It’s Too Late For the Potty If You’ve Already Pooped
  6. Daddy Can Only Count To Three
  7. Time Out!

Back to writing. Must finish Day 5 and start Day 6.

*NaPiBoWriWee is National Picture Book Writing Week. More info here and here if you’re curious.


  1. Jim,

    I hear ya! Numbers 4,5 and 6 were my favorite and I literally laughed out loud.

    #4 I totally relate to. See my blog for today about NaPiBoWriWee kicking my butt:

    #5 Is just funny! You really should write a book for that one!

    #6 This reminded me of a stroy a friend was telling me. She was doing situps and counting to 10 over and over again for her son’s sake. He was watching. Finally her son asked, “Mommy don’t you know 11,12 and 13?”

    Good Luck with the rest of your real manuscripts.

  2. Jim,

    I especially love #5 and agree that you should really find a way to write that one. My son is 4 now, and I have to say I don’t miss those potty training days! Thanks, too, for putting together the NaPiBoWriWee blog list!

    I agree, #5 makes me laugh too. After the fact. Every time I buy a box of diapers I wonder if this is the LAST one. Please-please-please.
