As any modern suburban family, we spend some portion of our day in the car – driving to school, to the store, to play dates, etc. Lately, Anna insists on bringing several of her early readers with her – preferably the ones that she haven’t read at home yet. I get carsick if I attempt to read in the car, but she doesn’t seem to have the same problem. She just goes through her books as a wild fire.
When she doesn’t read, she wants to play guessing games or spelling games. It’s too funny when it’s her turn to think of a word. Here is one of the latest examples:
Anna: I am thinking of something tall and red, and it starts with letter M
Me (after several minutes and several questions trying to clarify what it might be): Ok, I give up. What is it?
Me: But the moon is not tall and not red!
Anna: But I can imagine it tall and red. It will be a tall red triangle in a yellow sky! (giggles). See, mama, it’s a special moon! I win again!
