SNEAKY

Daughter is a manipulator. We have known this trait for a while. She refuses to do flash cards with me. I taught son so much by her age but she is not into "learning mommy's way." So I have had to let go and pray she learns her letters and numbers another way. I will see her playing with letter magnets and hear her call out the letters. But if I try to quiz her she acts like she has no idea what letters are. Well tonight, son escaped to the Brakefield's. He told sister he needed a break from our house. I was cooking supper and husband was on the computer when daughter came to me with her "drawing thing" and there she had written her name! She had used an uppercase M and all other lowercase letters. (I did not even know she recognized lowercase letters!) Her e's were backwards but it was perfect to me. I made such a big deal over it and she said, "Mommy I know how to write. I do it all the time." I wonder what else she knows. . .

I like it when T comes to my house because he tells us all about the Roach family. MG was hurting his ears and his daddy had been lazy all day and just layed on the couch.
