So Luke wants to learn how to read by himself. We've been working on one letter of the alphabet each week and are up to "m." We figure out which of our toys start with different letters, what the letter sounds like, etc. So today we sat down to "read." D - A - D -- that's Daddy!! B - A - D -- bad...but I'm good! B - A - G -- carrot! Okay, I'm still not sure how he "figured" out that one.
And regarding Susanna....anyone have any advice on how to make sure my daughter not only will put on underwear but will wear it all day? I just realized (at 4:00 p.m.) that she wasn't wearing any because, "well, Mama, I didn't want to. But it's okay! You can be happy!"
At least my kids dress themselves.
