I may have missed out on all the of baby related things of having a child but I am so thankful to be here now. I’ve seen Older Boy develop a love for books, I’ve seen Middle Boy learn how to read and spell and tie his shoes, and as you may recall I’ve been working with Younger Boy on learning letters and spelling.
He amazed me again yesterday. I finally got him that second set of magnetic letters for the refrigerator. Yesterday he was at it spelling words left and right. And then he asked me “Does this spell Caterpillar?”
I walked over and this is what I saw: KATRPLLER
Not only was I amazed that he had attempted such a long word by himself, but he actually had used the phonetic sounds to try and spell it. I was so proud.
I told him the letters of how to really spell it and even showed him the “cat” in “caterpillar” since he already knew how to spell cat.
These little minds simply are amazing to me. I’m very excited to see what else he has picked up.
