Where Do You FInd Words?
My youngest daughter is always the champion. When she sees a new idea and loves it, she takes off at top speed.
I showed her the WordBowl, 2011, and she was enchanted. She started gathering woven bowls from around the house. Bowls that came from Kenya. Starting cutting slips of paper and plying me for words.
"Sparkly," that's a good word, isn't it, Mommy?"
"That's a great word."
"Is this how you spell threaten? T h r e a t e n."
"Wow, you spelled that right!"
"I know how to spell a lot of things, Mommy. Don't you know?"
And she fills her bowl. And she writes a poem about playing ball with the moon. And I laugh when the ball goes bop-bop-bop, and I get emotional when the moon and she must part. She's found her words, and she's filled me.
