We wrote more stories. The first is from the 4-year-old and the second is from the 2.5-year-old.

There was a girl named Ezra who lived in a castle. Then Anya came. Ezra was going to be a beautiful Queen. And my Mum was going to be a Queen and my Dad was going to be a King. My Papa was going to be a beautiful King. When I was a beautiful Queen, I fell and hit my head. So, I was going to be a beautiful Queen. You were going to be an ogre.

Once upon a time, there was a little girl named Anya. And a dragon got her. In the castle. I step onto the wagon, and then I fell down into the wagon. And fell out of the wagon. And I jumped really higher and then I fell down and hurt myself on a bumpy bump.
“Knock knock. Can I come in?”
“Oh yeah, you can come in.”
And that’s why I bumped on the door.

The then 3-year-old asked me a series of questions about New York City a few days before we went there.

NEW YORK INQUIRIES

Are we going to stay there?
Are there houses in New York?
Are there treats in New York?
Are there walls in New York?
Are there people in New York?
Are there little people in New York?
Is there underwear in New York?
Is there dinner in New York?
What are their names in the houses?

  1. I am torn.
    I think I would eat at Anya’s “Hogarth” but then again what would I sit on!
    How big are these balloons?
