My Monster Man appears to be following in his mother's footsteps. I've noticed in recent months that he has taken a real interest in writing his own stories. I've been so proud of him for experiencing the pleasure of creating his own books. However, what I found out yesterday makes me even prouder!
It turns out that my Monster Man's teacher has noticed his stories, and has taken an interest in his creative side. When the county announced a contest for young writers, she immediately knew she had to enter him. She found one of his best stories, asked me to sign a permission slip, and is entering the story into the contest at the first grade level.
I'm hope he does well, but I'm proud of him no matter what!
