if you are not already in love with my girl, you will be after this story. she wrote this story yesterday on a whim. she sat at the computer with the mister and dictated this story to him. then they printed it out and she did all the illustrations. when i read it i was truly amazed that this came from my little girl.
The Little Tiny Tugboat
once upon a time there was a little tiny tugboat. he wasn't a passenger one. he was a fisher one. every big boat that had passengers on them laughed at him because he was so little. he was so sad he decided to run away from the ocean. he went to a mouse boat. and the mouse's boat laughed and laughed at him. he said, "you're so big, ha, ha, ha."
then, the little tugboat went on and on. a big passenger boat came in and he laughed. "ha, ha, ha, you're so little."
then, a really, really, big boat came in and he said, "ha, ha, ha, you're so, so, so, so, so little. and the little tugboat said, "i don't care, I like the shape i am. and i don't care if i'm really, really big or small. and that's all."
my girl is 6 and i know i've said it before, she's amazing. i love her so much. she's so smart and creative. i love being her mom.
