Comforting things

When Willis takes after his mom

Last week I shared some stories from Dan that clearly showed how my son is getting an inquisitive mind from his Dad.  I don't share that same enthusiasm for science.
But there are moments when Willis shows parts of me in his behaviour, especially when he becomes the story teller.  Lately all he has wanted to do is make "acting out shows".  What happens in these situations is Willis writes a story and then we have to act it out.   I think this is something they've been doing  at school because he often comes home talking about someone doing the acting out story that day.

I decided to be clever and video tape the process because I was sure this would be something I would love to remember.  It's very entertaining to watch him sound out words and create this little dramas from his head and even better is catching his excitement when we make them come to life on video!
