I've missed blogging. Long story, but I've had technical difficulties. I think it is resolved now.
This morning Twinkle Toes asked me to read the story she had written for her class. It was to be an adaptation of a Fairy Tale. She chose to write a modern version of Hansel and Gretel.
In her story, all of the characters were from the Deep South. Two kids were playing Mario Kart wii games, when a strange lady entered the house. They were so wrapped up in playing, they ignored her. Soon she snatched the remote and shut off the tv suddenly. She then screeched, "Get upstairs!" She then proceeded to find a big crock pot in which to cook them. All was resolved when the parents returned, called the police, and justice was served.
This witch with her Southern accent, who snatched the remote, ordered them upstairs, and used a crock pot sounded vaguely familiar. I am so glad to know I will live on through the stories my children tell their children.
