Things I Love Thursday


My Son

My son's 25th birthday is tomorrow.

How did THAT happen?

When he was about 3 or 4, he often sat at the kitchen table with me while I wrote.

I write longhand in a notebook.

He wrote longhand in a notebook.

Pages and pages and pages.



This one has an extra little index card attached to it.

This one has numbers along the side.


On this one, he traced his name that showed through from the opposite side.
  
 Afterwards, he stapled them all together to make a book.

Happy Birthday, Grady

Aw, so sweet! We have sons nearly the same age, Barbara. Mine will be 25 next January. Happy birthday to your little writer!

Lovely! I too have a 25-year-old son. He didn't write with me but when he was in kindergarten he'd often stand at my shoulder when I typed. When I hit a period, he'd demand, "Read it!"
