Our kids had been playing together on the beach for about three hours, and our kids were already making plans to have their new friends sleep over in our hotel room. I laughed, and said we’d need to talk to their parents first. They all ran off together and dragged back a mom. I recognized her at once. A world-famous children’s author. Of course MY kids’ manuscripts came back from publishers with quarter-sheet rejection notices. My heart sank.
