Spelling Matters

Today as we were in the check out lane at the grocery store, the four-year-old took the grocery list and my pen and found a hard surface so he could write. He brought it back to show me and this was the conversation that followed:

Him: Look what I wrote, Mom.

Me: Wow - I love you, Mom - thank you.

Him: Well, I was going to write - I don't like you, Mom - but I couldn't spell it.

Guess I'm glad for what he doesn't know. And I'm thinking we'll be careful what we teach him to spell!

I laughed out loud reading that! Kids say the funniest things! And your 4 year old can write?

It's moments like those when I'm glad I laugh a lot in the midst of parenting. :) And yes, my four year old can write. He has a great school that works with him and he just really loves it. He amazes me. Of course, he's not a young four either...birthday is coming this week...soon to be 5!
