I dote a whole lot on my youngest daughter, Addie. She is hilarious.
But today I want to talk about Emma, my oldest. Emma is 7 and in her 1st grade class they are learning about creative writing. Here is the story she wrote yesterday, in perfect cursive.
A Funny Boy
I saw a Boy marry a dog. The dogs name was Angy and the Boys name was Chester.
Then one day the dog had a baby thats name was flufy.
She had half dog and half humin. Then one day shy had 50.000 babys
and got married with a humin and thay all lifed happly ever aftr the ind.
Further wowing us with her talents, she asked us last night to pose so she could draw us. My job was to sit perfectly still and smile, which I did while watching American Idol. Then she moved on to the rest of the family. Here was the final product.
It’s uncanny, really. But here is what made me laugh and laugh.
