samuel writes

There is a reason why we haven't put Samuel in anything like, say, boxing or drum lessons.
It is another way that this kid that would express himself.  

And he is already really really good at expressing himself.  
And that kid has a lot of punk inside to be expressed.  

We haven't pushed writing on him.  Not for the same reasons that we haven't pushed boxing or drums, but just because we figured he would catch on and, well, he happens to be the second child (be honest, you parents know what I am talking about).

Today he shows up with his very first sentence.  
No joke.  Other than his name this is the first thing he has written on his own.  

He folded it up and put it in a cute little pink candy box for his sister.  He was so proud he showed his dad first.

Here it is: 

"Eva is stupid"  
Good thing they weren't fighting.  Lucky for him she thought it was hilarious.  Hopefully that is because she knows very well that she is, in fact, NOT stupid at all.

Samuel, really?  You finally learn how to write and this is what you want to express?

Good thing this isn't my fault.  As it would have been if I had been the one that taught him how to write.  I am such an awesome mom.

Sweet sister in law just reminded me of something that cracked us up last week.  
We were at the candy store (the Chocolate Covered Wagon has the best caramel apples in case you need to know).  Samuel got two chocolate coins.  One for him and one for his (not stupid at all) sister.  (And the fact that we were double fisting our gelato and handmade caramels was not the point but still funny).  So in the car on the way home Samuel is saying, "Ffffaaaarrrrtttt, fffaaarrrtt, kannnnnoooo, ffffaaarrrttt."  I finally said, "What is he saying?"  Though we don't claim to be the classiest of people, "Toot" is still Samuel's word of choice when it comes to that.   So, we asked, "What are you saying?"  He handed us the foil that held the chocolate coin.  It had "Fort Knox" stamped on it.

hilarious. I am glad Eva has a good sense of humor. I also liked when he was sounding out the words on the chocolate coin you got him. Classic. He is so funny. PS I don't know if I would dare to put him in drum lessons either.

So funny. Samuel really is a smart boy. I do have to say I find it ironic he misspelled "is" and "stupid", which makes the whole thing even funnier.

That's hilarious! It reminds me of my husbands cousins; a brother and sister just like Samual and Eva. The brother is older, however, but his first writings were creating signs for his sister to be the leader of the "gay parade". He says he didn't really know what it meant, he just thought that calling someone gay was like saying dumb. Oh-and they were Bishop's kids at the time as they stomped around the neighborhood with those signs on.

Hilarious. Samuel is hilarious. He and Seth should go bowling--but then again, the bowling balls might be a bad idea? :) Thanks for the post!

LOL! What a circus you have going on. You don't seem to have any dull moments with your family. These stories were way funny. Thanks for sharing. You made my day.
