How Corn Grows

You water it, and the sunshine makes it grow.  It grows under the ground, and it grows in the trees.  Even in a garden.  That’s where corn grows.

You could cook it.  You take the husk off.  I like it with butter and salt on it.

That’s me!  And I have earrings.  Now I want to write my name:  esme

Story Time


(Photo by Mom.  Helmet = car; Camera = Hendry; Glue = Jack)

I’m just helping these guys off.  That’s because they are human.  They’re in their car right now.

The camera’s right in here, and I think it’s a human.

They’re going to a different beach where they haven’t been before.  They’re going to play with their sand toys.  Vroommm, Vroommm…

Now the beach is a big beach.

Their names are Jack, and Hendry.  Hendry, the girl that’s a mama, and Jack, the giant that’s a boy.  The camera, the mama is telling Jack to come on, but he isn’t, because he’s too tired.

“Come on!  Come on!”

“I’m too tired!”

Hendry the mama is telling Jack to come on, but he isn’t!  He’s too tired!  Because he’s out of the car, and it’s hot outside!

Hendry the mama is not tired because she thinks it’s cool outside, but it’s not!  It’s hot outside.

Now Jack’s falling, and he can’t get up.  That’s because he doesn’t have any arms or legs.  But Jack IS a human, though.

Help Jack and Hendry!  Because they’re falling!

“We’re going to go someplace else, where it’s not hot.  But I am tired.”  Jack says, “This time I’m driving.”

If I Was a Farm Animal…

I would be a baby bird.  Because I want to have wings so I could fly.  I would fly to a farm where I could live.

I would say “tweet!”

I would eat little bugs and worms and seeds.

My name would be “Mary.”  Just like Mary the lamb.

My favorite animals would be cute little birds.  Pink birds, just like on Mom’s phone.

I’m thirsty!  If I was a baby bird, I would drink milk out of a bottle.  And I would have a bib, too.

Baby birds don’t know how to fly.

Happy Grandparents’ Day

I like to play with this wig and put it on my grandma’s hair, and then she’ll have long hair.  The wig is mine, but my grandma can borrow it.

I like to give my grandpa this pony.  I could light it up with its battery and show it to his feet.  Because it’s special and it came from the store and I wanted to buy it.  And wings, too.

I’ll give my oupa my wings.

I’m going to give my ouma a special thing like that pony over there.

I love my grandpa and my grandma because they are my grandpa and my grandma.

Does “grandma” and “grandpa” rhyme?  It DOES rhyme, silly!  I got rhyming words!

My pony’s legs are breaking.  So I’m not going to give my grandpa this pony.  I’m going to give him that pony instead.

My Favorite Foods

Cereal – the other kind.  Oatmeal.



Bubble gum


And more lollipops


Pink and Princesses

Not all princesses dress in pink.  Some wear blue. 

Princesses dance.  Princes get flowers for princesses.

Princesses eat healthy food.  Peppers, rice, and jam.  The king helps the food get off their faces.
