So Cameron has been going through this phase of spelling out everything he wants to say. And he's even rubbing off on his sisters. It can make for some interesting communication around here. He doesn't only spell words, but sometimes whole sentences. For example, "Mommy, may I go outside?" has turned into "M-o-m-m-y m-a-y I g-o o-u-t-s-i-d-e?"
Now Cameron is only seven, so his spelling skills are still being honed, to say the least. Lauren's are a little better, except for words that don't play by the rules, which we refer to as "heart" words, meaning words you have to know by heart.
Sophie is really on her toes trying to keep up with all the spelling going on around here!
The point of all this reporting is to share a funny dinnertime incident from last week. We were sitting around the table eating spaghetti. Sophie really wasn't much into her meal anyway. She was picking at it a lot rather than eating it. Finally, she pipes up with "M-o-m-m-y?" Yes, Sophie? "I'm F-O-O-L!"
Derek and I DIED laughing. Poor girl couldn't figure out what was so funny!
