My 5 year old doesn't keep a diary, but I don't ever have to wonder what he's thinking, because he talks All. The. Time. Whether we want him to or not. Most of the time this happens very emphatically and loudly. Sometimes while stomping his feet and saying that life isn't fair and that his big brother is mean! But that's a different story for a different day.
Kennedy, on the other hand, does have a diary of sorts. It's not under lock and key, and she doesn't hide it from us, but we find her writing away in its pages on almost a daily basis. When she sees one of us touching it
|No books were touched in the taking of this picture|
And when she chooses to share them with us, I take the time to look.
The rest of the time...
I don't touch her book. ;)
