A short story by Jared (they were given the first words as a prompt). He brought this home from school.

Meanwhile…back at school a plan landdid in the feld. Annamls came out and atke evrone exet me they like me.

Translation: A plan landed in the field. Animals came out and attacked everyone except me. They Like me.

I wish I had a scanner, so I could also post the picture he drew! It really brings the story to life there is a plane, and someone running screaming from a charging bull. XD! Not too bad for a first grader who hates to write. The page is now on my refrigerator, where it shall stay until he comes up with something cuter.

My husband is asleep in bed, and my son comes in and says, “Dad?”

His voice is quiet, but I give him the mom “look” telling him without words that he shouldn’t wake his father.

Dad makes a noise that sounds like “Hmmm?” though it really means, ’I am unconscious, leave me alone.’

Jared looks back at me, then keeps going. “Dad? Will buy Robert a quad*? He really wants one!”

My husband makes an indeterminate noise, and I say, “Jared, don’t ask your father for promises while he is asleep – it’s not fair!”

“FINE!” Jared stomps from room, evil plot foiled (again).

Dad makes grunting/snoring/oblivious noise. Mom rolls her eyes.

*A quad is a four-wheel all-terrain motorized bike, like this. They are pretty powerful, and relatively expensive. We already own two: and adult size and a child sized one that Robert has outgrown. We have recently discussed buying one or two more so that we each have one to ride on out outings.
