Did your mom save your first attempts at writing from when you were in first grade? Did you save your kids’ work? My mom’s saved every single paper I ever wrote on in elementary school, and it is just so funny to go back and look at all the mistakes I made. Just the same, it’s funny to look at the mistakes Christopher now makes. The way he writes things really make more sense than the way it is supposed to be… so whoever came up with English spelling and grammar rules wasn’t in his right mind. (It must have been a man, no question!)
These days, it’s not just paper kids write on; so we must find a way to preserve the digital as well. I get to skype with Christopher a lot. It’s the next best thing to seeing him in person every day. Something we’re working on. Until then, maybe I’ll get to share some more of these. It was just too cute!
