I am so excited that Boo is a reader, and can spell really well. She has gotten really good at sounding out words, and remembering her “word chunks”.
But, with the excitement of spelling, comes a down side. I can’t spell things out anymore!! You all know what I am talking about. “Maybe later we can make some P-O-P-C-O-R-N and watch a movie.”
Not anymore! I tried spelling out ice cream last week, and she squealed. She starts jumping up and down “I want ice cream!!”. There goes that parenting trick. Now what do I do???
