While I was preparing dinner, Baobao took a pencil and paper and told me he’s going to write a Goldilocks story for Meimei to read. In my mind I prepared to be supplying much of the spelling. How many words does he knwo to write a story?
But I stood back and let him do his thing, supplying some spellings when asked. Surprisingly not too many, probably 20% of all the words. And I had this :-
I cannot tell you how immensely proud I am of this work. At 5, he has the patience to sit through the whole piece of writing and word out the story. It’s fantastic! I asked him how come the chairs are not in the story, he said this was his version ( and he’s sticking to it ;)) .It’s laden with grammar and spelling mistakes, which I will correct him later. But it’s such a raw piece of beauty which I deem worth sharing in a blog and documenting.
When he gets older, this will be such a precious piece to show him how it all began.
