Okay we have started spelling in front of our daughter. It usually works pretty good. Well I’m a horrible speller so there are times it may take me a while or I might spell my word incorrectly (there is no spell check in my brain).
This last week my wife and I were having a conversation on what we should do this weekend.
Wife: “Do you think we should go to the Z-o-o?”
Me: Trying to put together what she spelled. Okay it didn’t take me too long.
Daughter: “We are going to the Zoo?!?!?!”
I realize Zoo isn’t a big word and when we talk about Z words Zoo is the first one brought up. My wife and I stared at each other in disbelief that she came up with that. Are we going to have to use more complex words? That hurts my bad spelling brain. Maybe we should use morse code. Wait I don’t know that either.
Needless to say we did end up going to the zoo. My cute daughter is 3 and she was a little afraid of getting to close to the glass on occasion. She liked certain animals (Loved the crocodiles, elephants, turtles, and giraffes) more than others (refused to see the rhinos and didn’t like the snakes much). There is a carousel there which she loved. We even did a good job of taking pictures. Okay these are bad pictures but my wife is big on internet security.
