Geniuses!

I have to say, my kids are brilliant. I know I am biased, but they are learning everyday. It took them a while to have an interrest in what is in the books, but now they are learning what objects are. We are really focusing on animals. Sydney has a special place in her heart for the duck. She also loves kitty. The others don't have a favorite, but Peyton has a fascination with pizza in the Cookie Monster book. At least they like to read. That is what we do all day it seems. We have about 10-15 books out all the time. we keep the same ones out all the time because they don't know how to take care of their stuff yet. I can't watch them all the time and they end up looking like this... I have to pick my battles, and this is not one of them. They will learn how to take care of more things when they get a little older. For now I just want them to be interested in learning new things. Sydney knows how to put the shapes into the correct holes. She can do a circle, square, heart, star, and triangle. The others don't have the patients she does. And, it is really hard to do a task with one of them successfully. I hate that. It always ends up being a fight unless we just let them do it by themselves. If I am involved at all it is a fight for my attention. I am so proud of my little munchkins.

Em, I will have to admit I believe they are all geniuses as well. Keep up their interest in reading, I'm glad mine loves it. Start them young and they will always love to read.

Oh man, I'm glad my foursome aren't the only ones who love their books so much, they destroy them (even the supposedly "undestroyable" ones)! I like your attitude about picking your battles. I'll have to keep that little gem in mind the next time Laine pulls and rips a moving duck head out of a book!

Love from KS,
Moni
