Once upon a time, there was a cookie. And pizza. Happy after.
It’s not much, but for a two year old’s first impromptu story, I’m one proud mama! All day I was still feeling iffy about my writing ability, I had no clue what I was going to come up with for O. Tonight, my little girl plopped down on my lap, opened a Slim Fast booklet I got in the mail and said, “I’m going to read this.” It was clear as a bell. Those who have been through this age know that it’s the time when words go from being new and muddy to a more proficient level.
I’m happy any time she speaks clearly, but when she told me a story she made up, it was heaven. I don’t want to be a pushy parent, but I do have certain things that are important to me. Arts and a creative imagination were things that got me through childhood and I truly hope she shares my passion!
