Auntie Sandy watched the kids for a few hours this afternoon (thank you thank you!!). Mark picked them up and they were in bed, but not sleeping when I got home. I knelt down to Christian's bedside and asked him what he did there. He told me about playing outside and then I asked what he did after that. He paused and then answered, "P-A-L-T."
*Side note: I spell a lot around here. Any chance I get I spell so Christian hears letters and sounds and Victoria can figure out just about any word I spell.
After he spells that 'word' I pause and look at his cute hopeful little face and I said, "Dinner?"
He bright blue eyes are wider than I've ever seen them and he says, "Did I really spell dinner?!?!"
"Close Buddy. Dddddinner. What does it start with?"
"Oh yeah, D. Off one letter again."
At least he's giving it a try now though.
