Andrew came down the stairs the other day and said, "daddy, cucumber starts wiff Q!" We both smiled and Don said, "sounds like it!" Of course it doesn't, but he's starting to pay attention and we need to encourage his interest in reading.

Today he said, "mom, the number 8 starts wiff A!" Again, it surely sounds like it. So I said, "great, buddy!"

Its a wonder any of us ever learn to read and write the English language, isn't it?

It's amazing what we learn, isn't it. BTW - even at Nick's age (6) if they spell something wrong, if it sounds right and they haven't been taught the word, the teachers do not mark it wrong. An A for effort, right?!
