I was recently asked why I write to my daughters when they are not yet old enough to read.
First, I intend to raise children that will one day be able to read. I’ll at least give it a shot. So we’ll call it an archive for now.
Second, with toddlers as my audience I can spew bad writing at will for years before they are ever able to confront me about it. Being a parent is SO AWESOME – I have so much power! I am like a king, and when they get old enough to defy their ruler I can just create more little minions to boss around. I yell when I want to yell even when they did nothing wrong, and I write what I want to write before they are old enough to read it! That’s how you feel powerful and successful when you are far from it!!!
