Growing up

Tennyson has started reading!!!!

He's known his letter sounds for quite a few months now. But I decided it was time to be a bit more proactive in the reading department.

We bought the Bob series books that are designed for just this sort of occasion. He read through the first two books as if he has been reading for awhile...maybe he has.

He has been so excited to read with me every night with his "special" books.

Today in the car I decided to see how far his knowledge goes. I would spell simple, three letter, words and ask him what I was spelling. He was able to sound everything out and get them all right! Pretty good for not being able to see the letters written down!!!

Way to go Tennyson!

I have to document a little conversation we had at Costco the other day.

Tennyson saw a HUGE playground displayed. His eyes got wide and he exclaimed, "Mom! Look! Can we get that for my birthday?!?!"

"Oh, Tennyson, I would love to get that for your birthday, but it's too much money."

He thought about that for a moment before he asked, "Do we have too much money?"

Thank goodness "Too much money" isn't really a price ;)

OK kids you can chose anything that's "Too much money" or less.

he he he he

I adore my children.
