Nora tells a story

Jen asked Nora to tell a story in the car a few days ago, and she was astounded by the immediate and and imaginative response she got from her. The story had a definite beginning, middle and end-- and that's more than Jen expected. But she couldn't remember it to repeat it, so we just asked Nora to tell another one. Without even thinking, here's what she told the second time:

"Once upon a time, there was a kid. And the kid went to the forest, and there was a monsta (monster). And the kid ran away, and the monsta chased her. The kid went into a school but the monsta didn't. Then the monsta went back to the forest, and he was glad to be home. The end."

So we think she may be a natural storyteller - with an affinity for twists at the end.
