Way back in April, I blogged about Audrey's love of texting from my iPhone. At that time, she was pretty much just listing people's names and hadn't figured out the space bar. But a little more than two months later, she's come quite a long way.
This series of texts tells the story of her going to a piano lesson. Her teacher is Irine and there is a retention pond outside of the church where she takes lessons that sometimes has ducks or geese in it. The "waterfall" is a storm water drain that runs into the pond after a lot of rain. Also, one of my mother's neighbors has a small waterfall in his front yard, and that is the "noni" reference.
I'm impressed with her use of apostrophes, and the texting shorthand "u". And here in Chicago we really do say the word "suppose" like it has one syllable, so I'm loving her spelling of it. Reading it all the way through like this, it kind of sounds like beatnik poetry. I'm not sure what purpose it serves to her. She still doesn't understand the back and forth. I didn't even bother inserting Lauren's responses to her because they go largely ignored. She seems to be just yakking about the highlights of her day and sending it out into the ether. Like mother, like daughter I guess...
