Spontaneous Spelling


Last weekend, during negociations for how many bedtime stories we’d read:

Mike: “Let’s read two stories”
Amelia: “How about three stories?”
Mike: “No, let’s just do two.”
Amelia (holding up fingers): “Two and two, that makes four”

Today at lunch:

Amelia: “M-O-M, that spells Mommy”
Beth: “Wow, very good honey, how do you spell Daddy?”
Amelia: “D-O-D”

That’s close enough to make me acually believe my Harvard remarks in the last post.
