C seems to be wanting to learn new words, yet, he isn't able to pronounce them. Most of his new words come out as "da da" or something unrecognizable. Today's example, M was coaching him to say "water" as we watched the roter-rooter man flood our yard in an unsuccessful attempt to fix a clogged gutter drain pipe:
I created this blog to try to capture the magic of childhood, the essence of what youthful spirit brings to our lives. My children put a smile on my face every day, and I wanted a place to record those moments. My own mother recorded snippets of her children in writing, and looking back at those is a precious memory for me.
About the Kids
M is a 6 year old ball of fire. She is feisty, bossy, and beautiful. She is in preschool now and absorbs knowledge like a sponge. We have to be very careful what we say around her because she remembers just about everything. The day she learns to read/spell, my husband and I will need to think of a whole new way to discretely communicate (Pig Latin!)
C is 4 and couldn't be more of a Boy. His motto is "how far can I throw it, and how loud can I make it crash". He likes noisy toys, the louder the better. Every day I see him learning new things, especially from M. They get along beautifully, but they definitely have their sister/brother feuds.
