The Meatball was at my mum’s house the other day and at the grand old age of 5, has the aspirations to be a writer (good for him!).
Mum tells me he was typing away on her laptop, stopping only to randomly ask how to spell words and would then go back to his typing, giggling the whole time. The whole project was shrouded in secrecy and wouldn’t let her look at what he was doing.
Before he went home, she was finally allowed to see what he wrote. She was then sworn to secrecy and not allowed to tell anyone, especially his mum. So naturally, mum emails it to me (she only promised not to TELL).
So after squealing like a banshee about the cuteness of it all and showing Fruit Man, I thought I’d share it with you all.
Mario wants to kiss peach in the castle. Then came a monster and peach got scared and she ran away very very fast. Bowser took her to bowser’s castle. Then Mario saw Luigi and he asked “Where is your princess”. Luigi answered, “she’s in bowser’s castle.
Luigi was visiting Mario’s house and they went to yoshi and everyone went to peach.
Isn’t it cute? Oh, and to clarify, this hasn’t been edited. All the quotation marks were done by him. Can you believe it? Quotation marks!! At 5!! All I could do at 5 was colour in pictures of apples!
What skills have your kids surprised you with? Something that you never thought they would be able to do at their age?
