writer in the works

1:35 PM

I need a hand held tape recorder. And I need to remember to have it on hand at all times in case Queenie starts to tell a story.
   She has taken to writing stories. Well, she can't really write except for copying, which IS writing, I know, but let's just say that she can't write the story coming to here head because while she knows ALL THE LETTERS and has made that VERY clear to me, she does not know all the words.

  That little tidbit stumped her for a moment.

  Then she shrugged and asked me again if I wanted to hear her story. Of course I said "of course".

   It went like this:

"Once upon a time, when I was little and Firecracker was inside your tummy, I got owies on my foot. I got owies on my foot from the chair and went to mommy saying, "Mommy! Mommy! I have owies! Ehhhhhhh!"

And that is when you held my head and said, "Shhhhhh, baby, shhhhhh. It's okay. Look, your foot is okay."

And then you said, "Do you want to paint?"

And I said, "Yes!"

(And here Firecracker interrupted her to say that she ALSO said "yes" to painting to which Queenie told her she did NOT say yes. Then the story continued.)

And I went to mama's belly and asked my sister, "Sister do you want to paint?"

And my sister said, "No, I am too little."

And so, that is the end."

There is a part I am missing, but I can't remember it. This is why I need a tape recorder. Or I just need to be diligent and take the time to write things down right away instead of thinking that lunch is more important. But I was really hungry so at the moment my stomach was in control.

Add to that baby brain and I will reiterate again the need for a tape recorder. Doesn't my iphone have one....

And isn't my kid too cute? Can you believe this is the girl that couldn't be understood by people one year ago? Wow, how things have changed!

And way to make her writer mama proud! I am already looking for agents.
