Little Eyes are Watching
S.O.L. #8 out of 31
Sharing writing can be an inspiration---even to an 8 year old.
On a weeknight evening last week, I sat quietly curled up on the couch with my laptop cruising through the TWT Slice of Life posts, searching for inspiring idea for my day 6 Slice of Life.
My son and daughter were each busying themselves around the house.
I’ve read most of the slices I've written to my son and daughter……
one slice about their dad,
another slice -a poem about my daughter,
an yet another slice about my love of crafts.
This time my eight year old son sat down beside me in the large recliner and declares,
“Mom, I wrote a poem about Kaitlyn.” (his little sister)
I had no idea that he was practicing being a writer. I was pleasantly surprised that he had put down the game controller and turned Minecraft off in his brain long enough to be inspired to write a poem himself!!
He revealed a notepad with a perfectly planned acrostic poem.
This is his acrostic poem he wrote all my himself about his little sister, Kaitlyn.
Krazy (inventive spelling I guess)
At the couch
In the iPad
So it might need some editing and wasn't too complimentary.
But I was thrilled all the same that he was inspired to be a writer.
