Anyway. I had some kiddisms to record, let me see if I can remember them.
Louisa: insists that her name is spelled with a capital a. The other day I went to write her name on her picture, and when I made the lowercase a, she got sooo mad that she painted over it and insisted that I rewrite it with a capital a. Then yesterday, she comes to me and says “I’m Louisa (which actually sounds like wee-za when she says it) L-o-u-i-s-capital a. I’m not making this up, I swear. Alex: This kid has always been a storyteller. Recently I’ve been giving him pictures from magazines and having him come up with stories to go with the pictures. He dictates, and I write. Well the other day I gave him a picture of a boy with an old man (it was Alan Alda actually, but he didn’t know that) we sat there for an hour thinking up adventures for “Jacob” and “his grandpa”. When we were done, we had a 2 page story. Complete with illustrations. That one is sooo going to be tucked away in a file to be saved forever.
