My World

Posted by jael on Mar 8, 2011 in Parenting |

Baby Girl came home from Kindergarten so excited yesterday.

She was able to bring home her Me on the Map book she’s been working on for weeks.

Baby Girl combines many talents in her bag of tricks and creativity is one of them.

Baby Girl gushed to report that she drew herself, “Walking on top of the earth like an astronaut!  See?  See!”

See?

See!

Along with original text and illustrations, Baby Girl came home with hand motions to teach the concepts of the book to the family.

(Arms stretched wide open) This is my world!  I live on the earth!

(Hands cup like parenthesies and pull arms more closely together) This is my country! I live in the United States of America.

(Hands cup like parenthesies and pull arms more closely together) This is my state! I live State Name.

(Hands cup like parenthesies and pull arms more closely together) This is my city! I live in City Name.

(Hands cup like parenthesies and close space the space between them in a loud clap) This is my street! I live on Street Name.

Little did Baby Girl realize she had written my story too.

(Arms stretched wide open) This is my world! I live in Familyville.

(Hands cup like parenthesies and pull arms more closely together) This is The Boy!  He is our lighthouse.

(Hands cup like parenthesies and pull arms more closely together) This is The Oldest Girl! She is our heart.

(Hands cup like parenthesies and pull arms more closely together) This The Middle Girl! She is our music.

(Hands cup like parenthesies and close space the space between them in a loud clap) This is Baby Girl! She is our art.

They are my world! I live inside love.

Well there was a time when you let me know
What’s really going on below
But now you never show that to me do you?
And remember when I moved in you?
And the holy dove was moving too
And every breath we drew was Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah!
