Today’s entry brought to you by Madalyn


Copied verbatim from the paper on which she originally wrote it (after I told her I wasn’t going to sit there and spell a bunch of words for her, which is what she prefers. She’s a perfectionist).
Keep in mind she’s not yet five-and-a-half.
red the cat
on spon a time ther wuz a cat and hr name is red and she had a noo car She wuz so happy
The Een
be Madalyn be JZ
(“be” = by. She and JZ were the “illustrators” as she told me.)
Apparently the lack of vehicle has started to get to her, too. Both stories she wrote with the help of my mom yesterday also dealt with the main character getting a new car.


About msmaryb

I'm a native Californian who lives in Oklahoma. I'm a full-time student, pursuing a Bachelors in Anthropology, following which I hope to attain a Masters in Archaeology. I have three kids, one husband, no pets, and a lot of friends - most of whom live inside my computer. I love to read, write, watch tv (shut up, we can't all be brain surgeons), shop, and travel. I'm trying to set foot in all 50 states before I die. I have 38, so far. I love the Beatles and Maroon 5, and if you think those two things are incongruous, well, they are. But that's me. When I love something, I love it 100%. I don't do anything halfway. I want to know everything there is to know, so I'm trying to cram as much into my brain as I can in the short amount of time I'm allotted in this dimension.

  1. I freak when I see the things my daughter can do nowadays. She’s been writing sentences too and it just floors me! Seems like just yesterday I was changing her diapers!

  2. She’s quite a girl! She’s sounding things out wonderfully!! I especially like the capital S on she for the new sentence! 😀
    Good job, Madalyn!
