Itty Bitty Bear Doodle


For her birthday, we gave Susannah a little black book with unlined pages, per her request, and I told her I'd paint something to decorate the front.

She asked for a brown bear wearing blue beads.






Just last night she starting filling it with a story entitled "Alien Invasion!!" 

I can't wait to read the finished work.  With a mind like this girl's got, it's sure to be a whiz-bang read.

Wow! I LOVE your drawing!

P.S. I want to read about the Alien Invasion, too.

I echo both of Cadie's sentiments.

Susie gets the credit, though. I don't think I would have doodled a bear with beads, and the beads MAKE it. When the story's done, she'd probably love to have you both read it. So far, she only writes when she's wearing pajamas, right before I turn the lights out for the night, and, so far, the aliens aren't the friendly kind.

A budding novelist! I believe your children can do anything they put their mind to. They have great DNA for creativity!

Much love!

UPDATE: Susannah announced a few days ago that she is no longer going to write ANY short stories ever again because "it is too stressing." Apparently, all the clamor from those of us who wanted to read her first story (which, indeed, did end being a doozy), heaped too much pressure upon her.

We're still clamoring, though, and I hope she changes her mind someday.

John must be proud of that title. You too. You both make me smile and all your little lovelies too.
