Caleb was drawing on the doodle pad yesterday morning. He was working on some letters, mostly the ones in his name. Then he drew a picture of me - I love seeing myself in stick figure form.
Then I realized he was trying to sound out a word, and I thought it was great that he was trying to spell without asking. I actually wasn't sure which word it was as I watched him write it. When he was finished, it was as follows:
I looked at it for a moment, hoping I could figure it out so that he knew he did a good job of sounding it out. Believe it or not, I did realize what it was.
"Does this say Chrissy, Caleb?" I asked him. His face beamed. I was correct.
Then I realized my children pronounce my name "Cwissy" when asked what mommy's name is. I attribute this to Ming Ming Duck on The Wonder Pets. D a r n duck.
So actually, Caleb did a pretty good job spelling. If it would have been CRSE, I bet most anyone could tell what it was. Guess we'd better work on those "R's", huh?!
