I don't normally blog about my kids, although they are my everything. I am definitely a family person! But my daughter, who happens to be 5 & a half and in Kindergarten, has really started to read on her own. I didn't want to push her, although she has desperately wanted to read by herself for the past year. I have encouraged her to read with us her whole life. I love reading, and want to pass that along to my children. I just don't have time to read right now.
But anyway, between reading and learning to tie her shoes, she is floating on cloud 9. There are only 6 kids in her class, including herself, that are in the shoe tying club. She was SO excited when she was inducted into that "club" at school.
I just LOVE LOVE LOVE seeing things through her eyes. She is a funny, smart, creative, sassy little girl, and she just amazes me every day. She has picked up things that I never would have thought she would. We do watch a LOT of PBS kids... and although I don't love how much time she watches TV, I am so glad that it is educational programs, for the most part. Hey, we all need some mindless time. But what I love about her is that even though the TV is on, she'll be playing with her toys, coloring a picture, or reading a book. She isn't just a zombie watching TV.
I hope my son will be the same way! He's already a mover and a shaker. He can't sit still, but not in a bad way. He loves to explore. He's only 7 months, as of today! YIKES! Where has the time gone?
I love my little family and am happy that we are complete, neurotic dog and all. :) What's your family like?
