Duck Duck Goose

This is an experimental blog by a four-year-old and his mom, to see how blogging helps a toddler learn by reading, writing (dictating), and recording his own history as it happens.

Blogger Relaunch - from the Moministrator

It looks like Blogger has been relaunched and made more user-friendly, including comment support. Perhaps this is what we need to get back in the habit of blogging together.

Because we are now using Blogger-supported comments instead of an outside comment-source like we did in the past, all previous comments are now unavailable. Sorry!

Keep an eye out for more frequent updates.

My Racecar

My new racecar is cool because it goes vroom vroom! psssh! CRUSH!

My racecar guy lost his helmet so I have to go up to my room and get the helmet off the other guy's head so he can have a new one.

Yoda has a spaceship so he can fly. It has a deck so he can stand on it. Yoda has a little green light saber with a sharp pointy thing so he can fight bad guys and put them in jail. Jail starts with a "J."

I like Elvis because he's cool. His music is beautiful. My favorite song by Elvis is "Heartbreak Hotel."

I'm going to type my name.

What I got for Christmas

I blew up my new bouncy ball. You sit on it, hold the handle and bounce, bounce with your feet. I roll with it and walk with it too. I want to play with it all day and night.

I got my easel and keyboard for Christmas. I like to press the blue buttons in the keyboard because they make songs and sounds like drums and stuff.

I got a choo-choo train set for Christmas. So that's it. Except for the movies, and new Legos, Dumbo movie, and the card game called Uno.

It's Christmastime!

Note: the blog project has been siderailed by the flu and the end of the semester for the Moministrator. Updates should be more frequent. Thanks for being patient!

We have made and bought presents. We made ornaments with the gold, red, and green paint. They look cool. I gave some ornaments to my dad. He thought they were cool, too!

We put up a Christmas tree. There are candy canes on the Christmas tree. There are also different ornaments and ribbons on the Christmas tree.

I am excited about Christmas. I hope I get choo-choo trains and track and airplanes, too.

A Flower Treatment

Today we were to the store to get some seeds. At the store we saw a lot of seeds. Some were really cool. My favorites were the blue seeds.

We saw all kinds of flowers. We saw cactus. It has a lot of spikes on it that hurt your fingers. They have the spikes to protect the flowers.

When we got home, we put dirt in the pots and put seeds in the pots. Then we covered them up and watered them. Soon the seeds will grow into a flower!

My New Favorite Website

I like Legos. I can play Bionicle games and Memory games. They are fun games but they are hard because I don't know how to make a bridge on the Bionicle game.

I Was Really Busy

I was really busy because I had a birthday and a field trip.

On my birthday, James didn't come. My cousins and grandma and grandma came to my party. We went to a restaurant called Mt. Fuji where the man flips eggs up and down on his head and cooks on the table. I ate steak and rice.


I had balloons on my birthday cake. I had candles on it, too.

Then I went on a field trip to pick up some stuff for my teacher. It was for Ginny. We'll make a collage out of it. We picked up leaves and berries. You should never eat the berries because they're bad for your stomach. If you eat the berries, you'll throw up and die.

When I Grow Up

When I grow up, I want cowboy boots because I want to be a cowboy. Cowboys have rope to lasso some horses and put them in the farm. Cowboys catch the pigs and put them back in the farm, too.

Cowboys eat cowboy food. Cowboy food is strange, but it's really good, like eggs, ham and toast. Eggs, ham, and toast are strange to eat for cowboys.

I also want cowboy glasses when I grow up. Cowboy glasses are like sunglasses.

When I grow up, I want to live on a farm. When I live on the farm, I'll have a cowboy hat and cowboy boots. They will be brown.
