Throwing stuff at the internet to see what sticks

Daddy, Blogger

M. Edium is starting to be able to read. It's painfully slow and he's not always in the mood, but he's learning how to recognize certain words, sound out others, and even write a few on his own. It's a remarkable thing, watching your child take the first steps towards literacy. It means that it's only a matter of time before he can read his own damn bedtime stories at night and we can get on with our lives.

Kidding! Kidding, of course. I can't imagine what our nightly routine will be like when we're not reading him three or four picture books (or more) every night. Of course, there was a time when I couldn't imagine not having a small army of baby bottles permanently occupying half of our center island, and those have been gone since I gave up formula six months ago.

So I thought that what I would do is write an entry just for him, that he could read all on his own, should the mood strike him. And then he'll see what daddy's doing on the computer all the time. And hopefully he'll find what he reads so boring -- because this is all stuff he knows, and would tell you himself -- that he'll never come back to this site again and read about some of the stuff I've written about him when he's old enough to kick my ass.

M. is a big boy. M. likes water, cats, and dinosaurs. Also Legos and space. His mom and dad cook. They cook good food. M. eats it, maybe.

M. has a cat Phantom and a cat Exie. They are silly. They poop a lot.

M. and his mom and his dad all like books. They read to him. He reads to them. His mom takes him to the library to get books. M. likes all the books.

He likes WALL-E. He used to like WALL-E more than he does now. Now he likes Transformers. What will his mom and dad do with all his WALL-E stuff?

M.'s dad farts. He clogged the toilet. Ha ha!

The end. I like to wrap up the regular entries with a punchline too, and I think he'll like that one.

This is literally the funniest thing I have read online all week. I had to read it out loud to my fiancee - which makes it even better!

Can a children's book deal really be far off?
