I Can't Believe He Doesn't Have Writer's Cramp Yet

My Eldest.

Also affectionately known as "Rainman" in our Trenches for his obsessive, yet harmless, tendencies.

From arranging his Halloween candy:

To lining up Matchbox cars:

To filling out birthdays on calendars:

His latest?

Song lyrics.

He goes on the internet and finds the lyrics to his favorite songs (mostly Big Time Rush), and then proceeds to fill up pages and pages of notebook paper writing them down.

My daughter sounds a lot like your son. She has some of the same "unique" qualities. She also has a thing for Big Time Rush as well.

I don't know the music.. but what a great way to practice his writing. He looks so creative. :)

I love this! He reminds me of my oldest ... in fact, I just caught him the other day sorting a pack of M&Ms by color before eating them. Those unique traits are so endearing! :)

My son used to do that with his cars all the time!

Seriously impressive...

Rebecca said...

Oh my! I think I'm going to have one like that...I sorta love it!

We used to spend hours arranging cars by color. Haven't seen the lyrics before. I agree with Vodka Logic; great writing practice!

My oldest is also an organizer/sorter. She just passed through the copying song lyrics from the internet phase.
She likes to organize behind me - which drives me crazy because she has her own organizational criteria.
She is frequently referred to by other mom friends as "Type A" and I am starting to think that they don't mean this as a compliment!

Oh my gosh! I love it! I have two boys - 8 and 5 - and I can so related to so much that you write here (although it's soccer, not football, at our house!) But the Big Time Rush reference made me comment! My boys LOVE that show and there's nothing like hearing your 5 year old sing "Til I Forget About You" with total sincerity, even though he has no idea what he's singing about. And for the record, just be glad he's WRITING, my 8 year old thinks writing in his response journal for homework is total torture, so to see someone his age doing it voluntarily is wonderful!
