A proud moment

March 11, 2008

Babs had her first story confiscated by the teacher as she tried to write underneath her math homework. Have I mentioned that she’s in the second grade?

God, I don’t think I could get any prouder!



  1. That’s great! I love it! 🙂

  2. Those are the moments when you know you’re kid is going somewhere. A month ago, my younger son told me he was working on a series about hoboes, complete with lyrics, and to be made by “Cranky Hobo Productions.”

  3. Nice!

    I started writing stories on my mom’s computer as soon as I could figure out how to use it… I think I was about 8.

  4. Good for her.
    I was that kid.
    Growing up in the middle of nowhere, behind giant rocks meant no TV reception.
    I learned to read and write and use my imagination early.
    I know kids need math, but they need their imagination, too.
    Did she at least get her story back later so she could finish it?

  5. Oh, and I LOVE the hobo comment.

  6. Math, smath..that girl knows what is important.

  7. Chani ~ Isn’t that great?!

    Citizen ~ Absolutely. Thank you for sharing about “Cranky Hobo Productions.” That’s fabulous!

    Reese ~ I think I should help her learn how to type after reading your comment. YAY for you!!

    ACG ~ I think her story was gone forever (student teacher), unfortunately. There’s more where that came from, though, and thankfully, she actually does well at math or I might be worried.

    Seventh Sister ~ I like that she’s a storyteller. I know I would still love her to pieces if she was a mathematician, but we *get* each other infinitely more because she loves stories.

  8. I hope Babs is able to reproduce the confiscated story,perhaps under her spelling book.

  9. haha cute. It must be nice to know you’re raising a creative genius. I’m guessing the math teacher wasn’t very pleased though. I used to do the same thing when I was a kid.
