Our New Game and Conversations with Three Year Olds

Joshua and Abby Kate have come up with a new game. It's called, "What letter starts with ____________?" They absolutely love asking what letter certain words begin with. They are both fascinated with their letters. It is amazing to see them making connections with what they already know.

For instance,
"What letter starts with pantry?"
"P"
"P, just like PawPaw!"
"What letter starts with snowman?"
"S"
"S, just like sky and shoes!"

They both get so excited when making the connections. I am one proud momma!

These questions can go on and on and on. Last week we made a trip to the doctor's office (20 minutes, one way) and I was questioned the whole way there! Abby Kate would ask, then Joshua, then Abby Kate, then Joshua, then Abby Kate, then Joshua........

I finally had to give in and say "that's enough, already!".

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The other day Jason and I decided to turn the tables and ask Joshua and Abby Kate some questions. I love hearing their answers. I always wonder where they come up with the stuff that they do.

We found out that Abby Kate wants to be a teacher when she grows up. She wants to have 4 children and only have 1 of those to be a girl.

Joshua wants nothing more than to be a "really, really, big, baseball fan"! He wants 5 children. I think that he wanted them all to be boys!

I was asked the "what letter" questions the whole way to school this morning.

It is so neat to hear what they say they want to be when they grow up. They are so young, but yet they know what they like already. Wouldn't it be great is Abby Kate really turned out to be a teacher and Joshua, a major league baseball player?

Isn't it going to be fun seeing what the future holds for you little ones?!

What smart kids! Their Kindergarten teacher will be happy one day that they know their letters so well. :) It's neat to see how much they learn so quickly. That's funny how particular they are about what they want to be and how many kids they want to have...even down to the sexes of the kids.
