My Kids Are SO Big!

I couldn't possibly be prouder of Ivy!

(This is a great post for the unschooling nay-sayers to pay attention to.)

Ivy's only three years old, and she just tried to write her first word! She said, "I'm making a present for you. Don't look." After a minute, she got kind of mad and said, "Oh, I can't spell Eden!" I wasn't thinking much of it, but I spelled it for her, and then she goes, "Mommy, look!"

She didn't spell it quite right, but she has a really clear E and D...then an upside-down little e that became a big row of Os. But hey, she's writing letters all on her own!


And just to mark it for posterity: Eden is big, too. She and I are sharing socks now. (Yes, she's still only five...and I have Peggy Hill feet. My baby's so big.)

Does Ivy's novel make progress?

It was Eden who was writing the novel, and she worked on another page today actually! Although *blushes*, she's not liable to get her page quota unless I put my NaNo away and help her. I'll get on that this weekend.

Oh Gods! Sorry!!!
(Maybe I should go to bed right now and get some sleep and my brain back from the realm of stupid! =-| )

Don't feel bad. I call them each other's names all the time. :P

My granny used to call me her daughter's name. =)

Yes, already I do. I remember my papa (paw-paw) going through the whole list of his kids' names - all seven of them - when he yelled at the grandkids. I thought it was an old people thing. Either I was wrong, or I'm old. LOL I call Eden "Tina" all the time, too. (Tina is my sister)

At the moment there is only one guy I never call André. Most of the time it's Philip. (I knew a piano player called Philip once.) And then there is Claudia who is "Waltraud". (She looks like one; though I never met a Waltraud.) I don't think it's necessarily an old people thing. =)
