Emma told us she wants to be a “singer on the stage!” She said this a few weeks ago and repeated this desire last night. Richard and I are doing and will continue to do all we can to support and encourage her desire.
Emma’s love of costumes and theatrics, coupled with her love of music, performing and singing in front of an adoring audience will go a long way in helping her achieve this lofty goal. It is the perfect window by which we can enter to help her acquire language, encourage her reading, writing and typing. I am starting to print out the lyrics to her favorite songs (reading) and find other ways to encourage writing (lyrics? poetry?) or anything else she might find motivating.
