First Story

I had a proud mommy moment when I picked Super Spawn up at school the other day.  The teachers commonly display the kid's artwork in the classroom's windows, so as I walked in, I took a gander at the newest pictures.

Their theme was Dr. Seuss that week.  The teacher had the kids draw a picture and then tell her a story about it.  She wrote their stories on the bottom of the pictures.  (Hey, they're only three, they can't write yet.)  Most of the kid's pictures had a single sentence beneath their precious drawings.

But not Super Spawn.  Here's his:

It says: "Once upon a time there was a little boy.  One day there was a cat in the hat a one and a four.  Once upon a time there was a jump!  The cat in the hat clean up."

My heart melted to a puddle of mush right there in my chest.  I told the teacher as I walked in the classroom how much I love the kid's stories, and she went on to say, "Super Spawn is such a great storyteller!  He makes up the funniest stories for me!"

I don't think she could have given me a bigger compliment.  I just had to share.  This one is getting framed for my office wall.

Aww, so cute! Maybe one day you and Super Spawn will have books right next to each other on shelves. :)

That is too cute :) A lot of writers start off writing lil' cute things like this. Super Spawn may have found his niche early! You two should totally collaborate in the future :D

Oooh, I love this. It's so cool to see the way kids are like us (also the ways they are different).
