Anna is learning to read and enjoying it,
“Mom, what does . . . W. . . H. . . A. . . T spell?”
“W. . . H. . . -”
“No, Anna, I heard you. It spells ‘what’.”
“That’s what I asked you! What does W-H-A-T spell?!”
“WHAT. It spells the word ‘WHAT’” That is the word it spells!”
We got 4-5″ of snow here today, so the girls got to go out and play in the snow for the first time this winter. We put our tree up last night. Their time outside and ensuing hot chocolate warm-up was probably some of the only 45 minutes I didn’t spend telling them to leave the tree alone. Leave the ornaments alone. Put the ornaments back on the tree and leave them alone. Get out from behind the tree. Quit running around the house with the ornaments. They didn’t mess the tree this much when they were toddlers! Today marked the first of sixteen days I’ll be home for the holidays. Mr. Unreserved is betting they drive me up a wall by Tuesday. This Tuesday.
