Well, That was Unexpected.Jerz’s Literacy Weblog)
I showed my five-year-old son the two recent blog entries in which he features (Johnstown Flood and The Meatball), and to my surprise he spent the next 40 minutes dictating responses to all the comments left by readers. It was interesting watching his composition process… the sentences are choppy not because he speaks in choppy sentences, but because he has to pause in order for me to type what he says.
Anyway, now that I know how detailed and occasionally off-topic his responses are, I’ll try to encourage him to dictate private e-mails instead — those of you who aren’t parents can probably only take so much of this unbridled cuteness. Well, according to Peter, it’s time to play Legos now, so bye.
