Tae's First Story

The other night Tim put Tae to bed (which in fairness is quite often these days;). Instead of reading a story from a book to him, he retold the story of the  fairy tale Hansel and Gretel (he made a point to mention 'in a nice way'). I'm guessing this was due to recently watching the film 'Hansel and Gretel - Witches Hunters' with Tig.

Tae loved it! When he had finished  Tae decided it was his turn to tell a story. So for the record, in print, here is Mr Tae's first ever story!!!

"Once upon a time there was a beautiful princess and a beautiful castle. Then a monster came and eated all the carrots... Grrrrr!!"

As his mother I think it is fabulous!!! Lets be honest, he included characters, a setting, adjectives and action - a future storyteller in the making.

The photos are Tae pretending to be a mermaid (to be specific - Marianne the Mermaid!) We tried to convince him to be a prince, but he was very determined that he was a mermaid:))

  1. Aww. Sweet. Like you said - it has everything for a great story - action, romance and carrots. What more could you ask for?
