Michelle's First Blog by Michelle Sproat

In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day I am taking the day off. So I’m taking a page from cartoonist Bill Keane of Family Circus and letting my daughter blog for me.

Enjoy! June

Michelle’s First Blog

Hello people! My mom is taking a break from blogging! I get to replace her for today! I’m excited…I hope I get AT LEAST 2 comments on this blog saying how awesome I am! HAHAHA I AM LAUGHING!

Guess what?! My mom’s not the only author in this family! Now guess who’s the other author. Come on….GUESS! Okay…I’ll tell you. IT’S ME! I published a poem in a book. It was through a club I was in during school last year. Here is my work of art;

The Poem
I sit here writing this poem
A pencil in my hand
Not sure what’s going to happen next.

Unaware of what surrounds me
Silence fills the room
Confusion floats around me.
I freeze.
Where did everyone go?

Oh wait!
No need to worry.
I am facing the wall,
The answer to my puzzlement.

Everyone is behind me,
Sitting doing their work
I was oblivious to what surrounds me
Writing this poem.

Okay…so I’m in 8th grade and I am psyched for graduation. Yeah, I’m going to miss my school, but I heard high school is pretty fun. We already got placements for some classes…and I got put into the “dumb people” math class. Well…actually I put myself in that class by not being good at math…but blame my dearest mother for my lack of mathematical skills! (I’m just kidding mother!)

So my mom and I were watching Mary Poppins on Friday night (I have no life! just kidding!) and we were singing along to like every song. It was funny. HA HA HA I’M LAUGHING AGAIN!!

Casey just walked into the kitchen where I am working, and she is jealous that I am writing a blog for my mother. This just proves that I AM the favorite child.
Well, that’s all I have for this time. Maybe my mom will let me write again! Or maybe…I will write my OWN blog. Eh…that’s a project for another day.

I'm not good at math, either, Michelle. I'm sure you'll have lots of fun in high school once you get used to it.

Thanks for being the blogger here at Acme today. You did a great job!

Hi Michelle!
What a wonderful blog post! It was quite a lot of fun to read and your poem is beautiful. I miss seeing your smiling face. Tell your sisters I said hello and of course your parents too. I miss you all and hope you're having a memorable 8th grade year...enjoy it- it goes by quickly even though it may not seem like it right now.

Much love,
Ms. Riley :)

Michelle, I just loved your blog. I sensed your mom's sense of humor. Two published writers in the family. How cool is that!!

out. Here are a few of them
