This is just terrific, Hank!

And boy, does Eli know how to get someone to commit to a deadline (which is almost as big as a pony).

Hank Phillippi Ryan

AW, I know, Dana...eight years old, and already pushing buttons.
xoxo Cute though, huh?

Toni L.P. Kelner

Hank, kids don't do "some time." It's always KID TIME.

Rochelle Staab

Beyond cute, Hank!


A future literary agent! So cute, Hank.

Hank Phillippi Ryan

Oh, thanks, Rochelle..! And Kris, yeah, great idea. I think that may NOT be on his current list, but you never know.

Nikki B

That is so awesome --- you so made me smile! (and given that I got up at 4:45am that's saying something) .... That will be the best birthday present he ever gets :-)..
Oh -- and I love that he calls you Grammy!


Oh, this is so wonderful. Thanks for sharing, Hank. I love this.

Edith Maxwell

What a lovely story, Hank! And what a great kid (with a birthday in the week that three of my most favorite people in the world have their birthdays in). Can't wait to read the new book.



Adorable! And January 19 is a fine, fine day for a birthday. Just sayin'.

Amy Allgeyer Cook

You better get to work, girl friend! :) That is beyond cute and I bet you're an awesome Grammy.

Hank Phillippi Ryan

OH, here's an idea..maybe I'll see if Jan 19 (HI, Wendy!) can be a deadline for a first draft.

Yeah, that's what I'll do...

Hank Phillippi Ryan

Aw, Amy..thank you! (And Elijah got your book for one of his Chanukah presents!)

Annette Dashofy

Spoken like a future editor! So cute. Now get busy on that book, Hank!

Rhonda Lane

Ohhhh, that's just too cute.

"Recess Time" - I'm imagining a children's book with adorable drawings and young Charlie solving some grade school mystery, like someone's missing lunch or special character lunch box. And she has only until the last recess of the day wraps up to do so.

:) Ho ho ho. :)

Hank Phillippi Ryan

Rhonda!! You're brilliant brilliant brilliant. YOUNG Charlie. Oh, gosh, I love it.

AH. I can't stop thinking about it. Thank you! (I think.....)

Nancy H

I'm sure you'll do a great job with FAMILY TIME, Hank. The deadline I'm not so sure about. Good luck!

Hank Phillippi Ryan

Oh, Nancy..you are so right about the deadline.


On the other hand, it might be a teaching moment about the sanctity of deadlines.

I just wanted to ask the same question as the ladies before me...I have been looking like forever to find a baby shoe pattern with no seam inside, so if you can tell us how to do that, I would be really grateful! Thanks!

Elaine Viets

Sounds like a bestseller to me, Hank. Time to ask that future editor for more input.


maybe you should consider takin' the little one under your "protective wings"..and get him more into this writing thing. you never know what it may come out of it. ;)

Hank Phillippi Ryan

jo anne--great idea! HE can meet the deadline..

Julie Herman

You are a great Grammy! Too cute.
