Reading and Writing
"Read it," she'll say. And rather than just say, "I can't read this," I play along.
"Hello, Mommy. I love you ... ," I'll start.
"No," she'll say. "That's not what it says." And then she'll tell me what she envisioned it saying, such as: "Mommy was in her room, and she said, 'It's time to go night-night, but I didn't want to go."
I'm encouraged that she wants to know how to read and write, though her curiosity disappears rather quickly whenever I try to teach her the letters of the alphabet or try to get her to write them.
Small steps, I tell myself. Small steps.
