My 8 year old is awesome and fills my life with so much joy. Today I couldn't help but to laugh as a scene unfolded. Maybe you will find this funny...or maybe it's just me.
All day she was practicing writing stories in pig latin. I thought it was cute and was just glad she was practicing writing. Then she explained that she was working really hard to memorize pig latin, because she wanted to be a teacher in a pig latin school when she grew up. I smiled...and was so proud of her ambitions. Then I had to deflate her dream and tell her pig latin was a made up language for fun. She was bummed...then I saw her in her room throwing away her stories and flashcards. It sure was a fun idea for an afternoon, though...and it made me smile. Cheers to pig latin!
