and she's spelling like always spelled before..
I have a junkie on my hands. A spellaholic as it will. Everything needs to be spelled for my 4 year old. She is obsessed with trying to spell, spelling outloud, spelling on paper, spelling while on the move, in the car, walking. Asking the people in line ahead of us, asking waitresses, the cashiers.
She wants to spell words on the computer, on my phone, uses puzzle pieces to spell words, spaghetti, blueberries. It's like the tootsie roll commercial where all they see are tootsie rolls. Well, Athena only sees letters and their ability to be combined and make sounds and stuff.
I know I am no help, though. I have always shown them what they would be eating for lunch/dinner and I have taken a blank sheet of paper and written "rice", "carrot", "fish" or "domino's", (oops, did I just let out a bams dirty little secret?).
Numbers are her gig too. She can count up to 200+ and then she can count in tens and only tell me the numbers that end in zero. This folks is her dad. He's what we like to call "an egghead", the sexiest and most adorable egghead around, but an egghead nonetheless.
Really though, she an an innate love of learning and we can only be proud. It is exciting to see her excited about it. Soooooo in conclusion....
My blog, my brag, right? :) It's the way of my people.
