Over the years some of the most popular posts to The Obvious? have been anecdotes about my kids and their insights into the world around them.
In the last few months my six year old daughter Mollie has started getting more confident at reading and and has begun creating the most wonderful stories of her own with subtle twists and little moments of wisdom in them .
An e-mail from Michael O'Connor Clarke tonight containing a story written by his six year old son and the ensuing e-mail conversation between us has inspired me to set up baby blogs for my two girls where I will post stories and drawings they have done.
Mollie's teacher is convinced she is going to become a writer or poet so who knows what her blog may be the start of!
Watch this space!
[well ... not this space .... her space .... well .. you know what I meant]
