Bean has become a story teller lately. It's one of my favorite things about this stage with her. She loves to tell stories, and loves to draw them out. We just get out a pad of paper and a pen. She tells a story and draws it as best as a 3 year old can, and I'll write it out for her. They're simple stories that usually make very little sense. They wouldn't sell in any major bookstores. But they're the beginnings of an imaginative mind. And I can tell she knows how stories are supposed to go, with a beginning, a middle and an end. And she knows that she is the author. This early story telling makes me so happy. Here's her latest story which she titled "The Bumblebee and Monster Eat Pizza." In this story a bumblebee lives in a far far land. She's very clear about who the monster is. He smiles alot. The bumblebee and the monster eat pizza. And then the bumblebee and a princess make a necklace, and the monster took it from them. The End. Brilliant.
