Tootle has caught the reading bug and is very interested in learning to read. Unlike Doodle, who entered kindergarten as a reader, Tootle has been disinterested until now. She particularly loves learning new sight words, and this morning she decided to quiz me:
Tootle: What does s-e-e spell?
Tootle: Very good, mommy! How about l-i-k-e?
Tootle: That's right! How about y-o-u?
Me: You. You've learned a lot of sight words in the last few weeks. I'm proud of you.
Tootle beamed and then went off to brush her teeth. She's going to be a bee for Halloween. Perhaps she'll be a spelling bee.
