Kiwi Sandro
My beautiful daughter, Kiwi, is growing up guys.

I can't stop it. I wish I could. I still see her as a chubby-cheeked toddler. She's been pestering me for her own blog since 2007, when I started my Family History Blog.

Kiwi became entranced by the idea showcasing her writing and artwork. I kept putting her off by saying she needed to wait until she was older. With every birthday that rolled around, I’d get the same request. “Mama, can I have my blog now? Pleeeese?”

I have finally given in to the inevitable (plus,all the whining, pleading, and begging). We set up her blog over the weekend. She’s thrilled. I’m so excited for her. She’s a very talented 12-year-old. She wrote her first book in first grade--Magic Rainbow. By third grade, it had become a four book series and featured her own artwork. For her last birthday, we bought her a graphic's pad. I’m so proud of her accomplishments, and I'm glad she's not afraid to share her passion for the arts.

So, please, check out Kiwi’s Comic Corner. Leave a comment and follower her. She’ll be giddy with excitement to know that people are actually seeing her work.

Many thanks,

One proud, Mommy.


  1. Like mother like daughter, I would say. Love her blog! :-)

  2. Thanks, she's having fun drawing new pictures. It's a great motivator for her to continue with her writing and art. At least she's hasn't reached the "I'm only interested in boys" phase.

    I'm sure that's coming in the next few years. Teens, sigh.

  3. You must be so proud of her, Angie. Awesome blog, Kiwi!

  4. I see you are using some of the wonderful artwork from Kiwi's blog. I hope you are paying proper royalties for the use of her intellectual property.

    I believe a monthly ice cream cone of her choosing would be fair compensation.

  5. DMC,
    I think Kiwi would counter that this is a low offer. She'd hold out for ice cream with chocolate cake.


Now it's your turn. What do you think?
