my child, the writer

My oldest kid has written in a diary since she was old enough to spell. This is one of the reasons that I am okay with getting her a computer for Christmas; because she wants to create word documents.
Every once in a while, I dig through her notebooks and see what my child is focusing on (and often worrying about) at the moment. She is really emotional, and likes to "vent" through writing, whether she realizes it or not.
Sometimes, I find stuff like the entry that's posted above, which is a parent's dream.... to know that all the talking and drilling we do IS sinking in. YAY!
(now, no one mention mom is reading her stuff if you see her..... it literally says DAD KEEP OUT on the front..... but I guess she doesn't suspect mom is a snooper, too!)

That is so sweet! It is great that she is making such interpretations!! Keep up the good work Mom and Dad!

Oh that is so sweet!!

I love that you're encouraging her to keep writing. I always kept a diary and was a writer my ENTIRE life. I never dreamed I'd grow up to make money doing it... but you may have a future career writer on your hands, too!

I just love this post! Oh, that they get it... that's all we, as parents, can hope for!
