About a year ago I began writing a story for my daughter Amelynne, using her toys as characters.
by Brittany Lowe
It took me about 3 months to write and 9 months to type it up, and I’ve finally got something to show for it. Right now it’s still a work in progress, as I need to read it through a few times with Amelynne and make sure she’s happy with it. I also need to add some illustrations.
Amelynne: (muttering something uninteligable) Does it Mama? Camilla: Does what? Amelynne: Mama. Camilla: What does what? Amelynne: Does it? Camilla: Does what? Amelynne: Mama. Camilla: What does what do? Amelynne: Does it mama? Camilla: What does what do? Amelynne: Yes! Camilla: What? Amelynne: Does it? Camilla: Does what? Amelynne: MAMA.
You know your daughter watches too much recorded Play School when, instead of singing ABCD-FOGashe doesn't know what the alphabet is yet, cut her some slack, she sings ABC-for-kids-on-2. And I can hear it in my head as she does it.
The ABC might not have advertising, but its sure got some catchy jingles.
