Tales from the Crypt

Some of my parent friends tell stories of their kids' voracious reading appetites.  Well, this is not my kid despite my own pretty substantial reading habits. Oscar likes to write his own stories.  You can imagine how fun book reports are - assigned twice weekly.  When I ask Oscar what book he wants to use for his homework last night, he quickly makes up a title (Blood Drinking Monsters).  Yeah.  Try again puppet - get something from the shelf.  Skelly the Skeleton materializes with the request to draw her for the bag so everyone can see she's not just a girl...she's a spooky girl. Sigh - it's rough discouraging your super creative kid.  I bet his story would be better.   Happy Friday!  xoxo
