5 Lists of 5 Things

(c) 2009 Ms. Huis Herself at musenmutter.blogspot.com

Things my 4 1/2 year old daughter has read on her own this week:
  • hot
  • fat milk*
  • low fat (on cereal box)
  • fox
  • And while looking at the word "time" in Pajama Time, she said, "Oh, that e is a silent e."
(I'd say we're raising a reader around here!)

Things Penguin has said lately:
  • New. Egg! New. Egg!
  • Fall out!
  • No Hoppa! ... Oh, man.
  • Na-na fix!
  • No! O-tay butt!**

Translations of what Penguin's said lately:
  • Mommy, please read me this great Good Egg book! [Thanks again, Mary Beth!]
  • Hey, Mom, I just sort-of accidentally climbed out of my crib! [And at about the same age her sister did, too...]
  • Swiper, no swiping! Swiper, no swiping! Swiper, no swiping! .... Oh, man!
  • Hey, sister of mine, could you help me out with this problem I have? OR Hey, Mom, my nice sister just helped me with a problem I had!
  • No! I don't want my diaper changed! My bottom is just fine, thank you very much!

Things I need to do this week:

  • start doing The Shred again
  • make Penguin's 2nd birthday cake & wrap her presents (When did she get so big?!?!?!)
  • sign up for summer session dance class
  • bring bag of stuff to Goodwill
  • write baptismal gift thank yous

Things I'm currently fearing:
  • Jillian Michaels
  • the scale
  • how long it's been since I last did the 30-Day Shred
  • swimsuits
  • doing push-ups

*the line above it was "2% reduced" which makes it all make sense.
** spelling of OK made more phonetic, 'cuz I think it's cuter as o-tay anyway. :)

I don't know if I should laugh or cry that I knew this one : No Hoppa! ... Oh, man." before the translation.

In school do they still teach the phrase "when two vowels go walking the first one does the talking"? Such a simple and useful phrase. Whenever people mispronouce my name I'm always tempted to ask them if they ever had phonics class. Kudos to your kid!

I love the "No! Ok butt!". Cracks me up.
