Baby steps

September 24th, 2012

Writers tend to discover the power of the written word early on.
I sure did!  Here I am at about five or six, trying to weasel out of my punishment (I’d been sent to my room) for fighting with my sister…


In case you can’t read my creative spelling, it says:  “Dear Mommy, I would like you to understand that I was not the one that kicked Lisa.  Lisa poked me in the eye.  Love, Heather.”

I can’t remember now whether or not my written plea was effective or not, but I sure am glad that my parents saved the letter.  It’s always fun to look back at our baby steps.
