Gosh Darn, She CAN Spell!

Okay, I really was going to lay off of the "My child's spelling is atrocious" posts, but this one is too good to not share. I would like to thank my Little Sister for providing me with the material for this post. I would also like to thank her for entertaining my child through Instant Messenger yesterday morning while I "cleaned the house" (Read: slept!)

I received an email from Little Sis with the following transcription of part of their IM conversation with the message, "Doesn't the last sentence just sum it all up?!"

(Now, if you are one of those "read the last page in a book first" type of people {RYLEY} let me warn you, do not skip to the bottom to read the last sentence . . . you will ruin the fun.)


Charming Child: what did you do for valentines day

Little Sis: umm.. worked during the day.. then went out to dinner.. then hung out at barnes and noble.. then went home..

Little Sis: what did you do?

CC: i eat beff jreaky pudding and pckles for dinner

Little Sis: beef jerky pudding?? GROSSS!!! **

CC: i got them from your mom

Little Sis: thats a pretty disgusting pudding flavor..

CC: sorry beff jreaky and pudding***

Little Sis: ohhh.. okay that makes more sense..

CC: ( i can spell sorry)

**Notice Little Sis spells the words "beef jerky" correctly
***Notice CC still does not!

Man that was a good conversation!!

I didn't even catch the fact that I spelled it right when I asked her about her pudding flavor..and she turned right around and spelled it the same way she had before.

Maybe one day this spelling thing will click in her brain...

Yes, doing the family pictures were brave, but they turned out so cute that it is okay. I don't always do projects that exciting. I think this Monday we will make Chex muddy buddies... Hopefully the mess will be contained inside a ziplock bag.
I love the water color painting. That is sweet and so cute, not to mention that it looks exactly like you:) At least you know you are relly appreciated!!!

Our Monday project was making Muddy Buddies, or as Jack called them, Mud Buds. I know everyone will be disappointed becuase it was not as creative as the last one, but that only comes along once in a while. I have pictures but I need to go to my moms to download them. They are great. And yes long hair is in, but then we have to do it, so yesterday it got cut and his looks like a big boy now. I will post pics of that too...
