Bed time stories

Standard

I try to be sure to read to Ethan before naps and bedtimes, every day. He’s starting to understand the concept of voice to print matching and gets that a spoken word=a word on the page.

So, lately he’s been doing a lot of
what’s that say? when he sees print somewhere, as well as, pointing out signs that he knows.
Ex:
Applebees!! Mommy wook! Applebees!

This afternoon, while finishing the story, he informed me that now he was going to read it and snatched the book from me. He proceeds to say various things that he remembers from the story and then asks me what a certain page said.

I responded with “I think it says that it’s time to stop procrastinating and go to sleep

To which he wittily responded, while tapping the words on the page:

no, no, no… It say ‘Ethan take too many naps already. He no go to bed. Mommy is a bum.’ Dat what it say mommy!

Um. No.

Tell your friends!

Standard

We got out of the car tonight to come in the house and he saw a bug on the sidewalk. He proceeded to smash the bug rather violently and then he said-

“yeah bug! I mash you! Stay away from my house you bug! I leave you there, you tell your friends about me!”
*insert evil laugh*

Ethan math

Standard

“Mommy! Guess what? Daddy give me 2 kisses and you give me 2 kisses, dat make 4 kisses for Ethan!”

So I said, “how about I give you 2 more kisses when we get to school? How many kisses will that be?”

After a few moments, he said “dat make 6 kisses for Ethan!”
