As a baby, she was nicknamed "superbaby" by some of my friends and her daycare teachers because of how quickly she learned. She was crawling around four or five months, walking by nine and a half and had about 25 words at a year old. (Yes, I'm bragging. I'm a proud mama!) Well, last night she held true to her superbaby status (well, now she's probably superKID) and has offically learned to READ her first word!
Yep, last night, Scott was giving her a bath and she was playing with her foam bathtub letters. They sounded out some letters together and worked her way around to spelling C-A-T. Then she sounded it out..."Cuh--ahhh--tuh...hey Daddy! That spells CAT!"
To make sure it wasn't a fluke, this morning I wrote "CAT" a piece of paper and asked her what it says. She looked, said..."C...A...T...hey! That says CAT!"
I guess this also means she knows how to spell cat. Things are going to get tricky when she starts figuring out what I'm spelling when I spell out "P-O-P-S-I-C-L-E" and "C-A-N-D-Y" as code to Scott...
Yep. I'm a PROUD mama.
Anyway, on to Five Question Friday! (It's been awhile since I've done one of these!)
1. Do you apologize to your kids?
Absolutely I do. Even though I'm the mommy, I'm far from perfect, and there have been times where I have yelled when I shouldn't have, or said something I shouldn't have when Angelica's been acting up, and after we both calm down I will apologize if I was out of line.
2. What color are your nails right now?
I haven't painted my nails in ages, so right now they are natural color :)
3. When you were growing up, how difficult was it for you to stay home from school sick? (As in, did you have to vomit or just say "I don't feel good".)
My parents were pretty good about calling me on my BS if I had "testdayitis" or "stayeduptoolateitis". So I'd say it was pretty difficult for me to stay home from school if I just didn't feel like going. I was a good student though, graduated with honors so I didn't fake it THAT much.
4. When is the last time you bought a new comforter for your bed?
Two weeks ago! My old one was falling apart to the point where I could put my foot through a hole in it. I was wandering around Target one day about two weeks ago and I found a REALLY nice one on clearance for 75% off . I paid $12.95 for a $50 comforter!
I also just bought a new one for Angelica yesterday :) Her comforter was actually fine but our washing machine ripped her Dora fitted sheet, and since you can't buy those separately I used $30 worth of Amazon gift codes (which I got for free from using Swagbucks) to buy a new Dora toddler bedding set for her.
5. Favorite website(s)?
Facebook, Pinterest, The Life of Rylie...and Bryce Too! and of course, this blog!
