Snooping in the Journal of a 2nd grader

Guilty.

I'm a snoop.

And I found this, spelling true to form:

When I Saw You

When I saw you I stared at you and the atraction of light hit us right away it was like a dream that I couldn't remark and now my minds gone Blak and now I have a secret that I could never tell and I hope this feeling comes back. When I saw you I stared at you and the clouds went away the sun came out.


Hoo-Boy.

  1. Well, I can see the writing talent has been passed down to the next generation, TKW! Budding romance novelist, perhaps?

    Really darling. Who could be the object of affection?

  2. That piece has a very strong E.E. Cummings vibe to it, which, in my humble opinion, is a very, very good thing.

  3. Hoo-boy indeed! My third grader is proud of his little poem: "Roses are red/violets are blue/I'm not giving you a Valentine/unless you give me one, too."

    I agree, your second grader is quite the writer! Go ahead and take a picture of that page for your memory books. :)

  5. That has a mature and lovely vibe. Second grade, seriously? My son's first grade school journal says things like "I like transformers. They are osum."

  8. My jaw is on the floor. For SO many reasons. You must be both proud and terrified.

    But in all seriousness, Kitch, it's beautiful!

  10. snooping? i wouldn't call it snooping. i'd call it getting a headstart on what's sure to be a source of future hairloss and fretting. or, on the brighter side, perhaps you'll get some of the royalties from what's sure to be an excellent novel. :)

  13. *face-palm*

    You are well and truly screwed. I'm also afraid that many young men's hearts may find themselves shattered before long.

    And seriously - second grade?!

  14. She most definitely has inherited her mother's beautiful way of expressing the world in writing. Don't worry, I was boy crazy at that age too. My parents found my 1st grade journal in which I had written that a certain 1st grade boy was awesome and "had a lot of sex". That led to the BIG talk in which I learned what that word really meant...

  15. Oh, my poor TKW. I see lots and lots of cabernet in your future. Lots.

  16. P.S. She may be lovesick, but it's obvious she's a genius, just like her mom.

  17. Linda,

  18. A glimpse into your future!!!!
    Well I must say she writes better than the majority of adults..me included. WOW.
    My Dad was a snoop and read my diary when I was in 9th grade..It wasnt as beautiful as your daughters writings. It was more like.."Snuck out tonight with Angie..got drunk..went to Pattis house .got more drunk..snuck back in and he never knew"
    Needless to say I was grounded for 5 months!!!

  19. I think my heart stood still for two seconds. For more than one reason (admiration and fear).

    TKW, the writing genes are so there.

  20. Oh my. You are going to have your hands full. Can I interest you in a Valium salt lick?

  21. I'm so afraid of that. Not my daughter falling in "luv" and writing about it, but of being left alone with her journal. I know if I read it once it'll be like an addiction.

    Especially if she writes anything like your daughter. Damn.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Wow. Those are some huge feelings. And I'm pretty sure there's not a big girl around who doesn't now EXACTLY how she feels.

    You(she) should submit that to Stone Soup.

  23. Oh my God! Miss Lu is in second grade... I know this is coming... or there. Miss D is very eloquent.

    All of a sudden I don't feel so bad for having all boys.

  25. Oh honey, you're in trouble.

    But I think you already knew that. So have another gimlet!

  26. Wow. You might want to start putting some bars on her windows, like, now.

    Amazing and a leeeetle bit terrifying.

  27. Oh, that's too, too precious!
