Writing Backwards

backwards writingI love this picture from my daughter. She has really taken off with writing and I just love how when she runs out of room, she just rounds the corner and writes backwards. I’m not sure if you can tell but when she hit the end she started on the next line which says “made this for” and then turns back around and writes Grandma. I do love little one’s writing. It says so much about them, doesn’t it? I used to write backwards a lot when I was little. I hear this is pretty common with lefties, which explains me, but my daughter is a righty and does this a lot. I love it. Pretty chaotic around here still, trying to put things back into place after some demo work and lots of painting. Hope to have some pictures on Wednesday for you. Let me just say that I am loving my kitchen now, it’s no where near done and not by any means perfect, but it’s so much better than it was. Hope you all had a great weekend!

  1. I think this is genius… we should all write left to right, right to left, left to right.

    Oooh how exciting! Luuuv make-overs. Hope there are Before pics too?!

  6. These are the kind of notes I cherish. They eventually do start writing “correctly” but my heart still enjoys looking back to old letters and pictures. So sweet.

  7. Your daughters writing is so cute and when you think about it, it does seems logical to write backwards X

    Thanks everybody for stopping by and saying hello. I do love their writing and also the way they mispronounce words when they are little, what great memories.
