Proud Parent Reading

When you read about child raising you have one of three initial reactions:
1) Oh, I should try that
2) Bad me...
3) Yes! I'm a good parent!!!

Today I had a rare #3 reaction! I was reading in Parents Mag about getting your 4-5 year old children ready to read. Now Trouble LOVES books. He recently started getting excited about singing The Alphabet Song and figuring what sound each letter makes. He constantly asks questions like, "What does______ start with?" and "What sound does ___ make?". He also likes to 'read' to us. His favorite is to rhyme. Sometimes he even makes up new words to rhyme with real words. Although the other day I'd asked him to rhyme fit and he said, "Tit". Oops! Well, it could have been worse!!
Anyway, all those things are ways the article suggested to get your preschoolers ready to read. And we're already doing them. Okay, so Trouble is already doing them...and many of them by his own accord.
So that is my rare parenting brag moment. It not our fault we have awesome kids :-)

Tit? LOL that's too funny. He's getting so big!

Bun very earnestly repeated the "f" word to me about a week ago. He was asking something and kept repeating it. Now I know he doesn't ever hear that word in our home-- but who knows if he heard it at the Shoppette or commissary. I didn't tell him it was a really bad word because I didn't want to draw attention to it.

Anyway, welcome to the wonderful world of blogging!

Yeah, I am so glad to see you here. Its okay that he just made up the word "tit." Its much better than your kids getting bad words from you. Having to teach you 2/3 year old (Innie) to not say the d-word or the h-word because you say them and it hadn't occured to you yet to not say them, that's a huge#2 moment.
