Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Princess Nagger Style – Wordless/Wordful Wednesday

I know I promised pictures of what we’ve gotten done on our remodel, but that was part of yesterday’s post, since all we really got done (besides more cleaning up) was the steps.  And I thought today I’d do something more fun.

Around Christmastime, one of my bloggy friends, Jenners of Life… with Books, wrote a post about how her cute little 6-year old son was asking Santa for one of the books.  I had remembered seeing the name of the books floating around, but with Princess Nagger’s focus on dinosaurs, she hadn’t mentioned them herself, nor brought any home from the school library.  I asked her if she’d heard of them – to which she enthusiastically replied “Yes! I love those books!”  which then resulted in the subsequent trips to the library at school with her checking them out to actually read.

Recently Jenners wrote about how her son is writing his own diary…I’m sorry, journal – which I of course shared with Princess Nagger.  It apparently inspired her to do the same, because, as she says, if a six year old can do it, so can an eight year old.  Her recent library trip resulted in checking out this book:

Which she read in one sitting in two hours straight for her 100 book challenge.  Not to leave out her beloved dinosaurs, she did check out this book too:

Which she hasn’t read yet.  Because she wanted to get even more inspiration for her own Diary of a Wimpy Kid book which she recently started (thanks to Jenners son’s inspiration):

You can click on the picture to see it in a larger format to actually see it, if you want.  For some reason the title page inside her 3-ring binder she drew a picture of a piece of Swiss cheese – notice the ‘fumes’ emanating from it (because she, like her mama, doesn’t like Swiss cheese):

She started writing her own version of a Wimpy Diary:

Her illustrations crack me up:

In case you weren’t able to decipher the pages, here’s what they said:

Thu friday

Just to say, before I write even ONE word more I just want to say that this JOURNAL is different from ALL of the others.  I can’t tell you why JUST yet, but I think you’ll figure it out soon.  Today on the bus, (VERY Dirty) I kept seeing some kind of rainbow-colored ball.  It kind of looked like a soccer ball.  Here’s what it looks like:

(illustration)

I don’t know if I was Dreaming or not, but I think I was.  You see, whenever I see “the ball” I try to stop it with my shoes – it NEVER worked.  So eventually I gave up.  Then I never saw it again…UNTIL SOMEONE GRABBED IT AND HANDED IT TO ME!  Now THAT episode Really

(illustration)

Had me thinking.  I didn’t want it taken away, so I Hid it in my pocket.  And guess what?  I LOST IT! LOST IT! LOST IT! and never found it again.

Valentine’s Day

Well, THAT was a disaster, but actually, that happened YEARS ago!  Wait, I know It’s been um… 1…2… three pages ago?  Whatever!  Uhh… Oh yeah!  Well Oh how RUDE I act

There you go.  Are you riveted?  To be continued…

  1. Great work – is this just an extra credit project? Good to see kids reading and writing vs. just watching TV etc. My only minor suggestion would be to add a little color to the illustrations.

  2. I am totally riveted!! I love her artwork! So cool! I just love the way kids express themselves…so free and easy! Love love love it!!

  5. Totally riveted. Love her illustrations and her writing is awesome.

    My 8 year old loves Wimpy Kid Diaries and informed me last week that he wants all of them. He writes his little diary inside them. No illustrations…I have to question him on that,lol.

  6. Are you sure the swiss cheese wasn’t representing the cheese touch from Diary of a Wimpy Kid? Just a thought. That journal looks fabulous. What an amazing job.

  7. Hang on to this with two hands. As my sons grow older I like to drag them out now and then to relive their younger years. It’s priceless!! And as they grow older, their drawings get even more over the top…

  8. My boys love those books and the movie but I would fall out if they actually started keeping a journal on their own. My 7 year old does have to keep one at school though.

    Definitely hang on to that thing when she’s done with it! Precious memories.

  9. Perhaps the cheese represents the “cheese touch”? I can’t remember which book of the series the cheese touch appears, but I think it’s book one. My kid devoured these when he was 7-8 years old. He’s now into the Percy Jackson books.

  10. Cute! better watch out Stacy.. she may decide to take over your blog next!
    oh, never mind… she is 90% inspiration on most posts anyway 😉 LOL!

  11. that’s awesome! My boys have all been reading D of WK, they are great books. I sat down and read them all myself. With a house full of boys? it’s hard not to giggle.

  12. I love the creativity! I really think the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series frees kids to see their worlds creatively and express their feelings. This is the beginning of a very special work by your daughter.

  13. That is too cool that PN wrote her own book/diary. And she’s got quite the sense of humor, like her mom! I can’t even fathom the days when my kids will actually read a book or sit still long enough to write something.

  14. Ha! I love it! It is so fun to hear her stories … and I love her big plans for the journal. The cheese might be referencing “the cheese touch” from the Wimpy Kid books too. I was told all about it by my son. Here’s to kid journals!!! May we have many more years of this fun stuff!

  15. That is one intelligent child, and I totally love her imagination. Personally I think that child is going to be somebody one day. Maybe an author or a director I think. Very nice indeed. The best think is she didn’t need a machine to write all that out. Gold Star – Princess N!!!

  16. Alright that’s totally awesome! lol, I used to write stories like that all the time when I was little- and poems too. One of my favs? “My dog max is nice, my dog max has lice, my dog max has fur, my dog max is ger…..man. {shepherd.}”

    …That’s why I’m a blogger, & not a bestselling author.

  17. Oh, that is too cute! You and she will so much fun going back through all her journal entries when she’s older. Wait, maybe then she might start to question why you even posted her journal entries on your blog. ;p

    Josh hasn’t discovered the ‘Diary of a Wimpy Kid” books yet; he’s still finishing up “My Weird School” and the “My Weird School Daze” series. 🙂

  18. I tellya, as far as I can see this idea and your daughter’s work and art is most definitely a keepsake!! In years to come, she can look back at this journal and get the biggest thrill and smile of all the memories she’s taking time to write down now!!! I LOVE THIS!!!!

    Hope you’re having a great day! Thanks for stopping by yesterday. Your company is always welcomed!!

  19. That’s awesome! Baby started making notes about her day on a pad of paper the other day. Her first bit of information, “My sister is CRANKY!” Big writes a series of short stories featuring two turtles – Lila and Crocus. I think she’ll be an author someday, but I’m biased ’cause I’m her Mama.

  20. thanks for stopping by my blog, i’m now following back.

    I LOVE this. my boys are huge wimpy kid fans but they only start journals…then they misplace them and start somewhere else so they aren’t doing as well but i figure the writing practice is still great.

  21. Thank you so much for stopping by my Blog the other day 😀 This post makes me love books even more!!! Love when children get inspired by a book. Can’t wait to read more.
