    Yesterday DD was crying that some kids made fun of her for still liking PBS kids TV shows. I told her, you know it's really a wonderful gift to be able to enjoy simple things. Some people don't like to go for walks, but something so simple can be wonderful. I think your perfect just the way you are. I'm sorry they missed seeing that about you and hurt your feelings. She went from crying to shining.

    Today I get to feel like a great Mom.

    today my DD who is three going on four used the word "soporific" then tried to talk to a two year old about molting at the library. Yesterday when someone said they needed to get inside because they were going to melt, she said, "Don't worry. I'm a solid--ha ha" Okie dokie. I can see why her preschool teacher said she seems a little out of place in her classroom.

    Writing's been a weak spot for my DS8 who's a bookworm. My husband keeps telling me all that reading will eventually reflect to his writing. But I wasn't sure when it's going to happen. Thanks to my threat and persuasion, my hubby has helped my son write a paragraph almost every weekend since this school year started. English isn't my native language, so I wasn't comfortable afterschooling writing with him.

    Anyway, my son showed a paper to me this afternoon and I couldn't believe he wrote the following story by himself at school without my hubby's help.

    The Pirate Who Met a Giant

    Once upon a time a pirate named Jack set foot on a misty island. He called to see if there were villages he could find to rob. There were no call backs but one. It was a giant. He said, "Fee fi fo fum who sets foot on my island!" Pirate Jack said back, "You scurvy giant sucm, you shall not have this island!" Then Jack found the giant and dueled and fought until the giant fell down and said, "I'll surrender since you defeated me." Jack said, "Good, now you can leave now." The giant went away and later Jack left the island to steal from villages far away. That was how the story began.

    We gave him a ton of compliments. His confidence in writing got boosted 10 times at least today. Hope days of frustration in writing are behind us.

    Lan- That's a great story!!! how wonderful your DH is helping him with writing.

    I think frustration is part of creative. I was just reading a art teacher book that says let the kids be ok with not liking some of their work. Even Adult Artists might like 2 out of 5 drawings. Not liking work sometimes could promote progress.
