My little four year old is scaring me these days. Besides being waaaayyy too observant, she is beginning to do math (something I completely detest). Why can’t I have a child that spouts Shakespeare? Seriously, though my girls love math and science. I say give me a book any day.
Back to the scaring part…Sarah was sitting with me and asked what does XIN ELEETS HARAS spell? “Absolutely nothing,” I replied. “Wrong!” she said in an over-confident voice…”it is my name backwards.” I thought for a moment…keep in mind I had to really think…and sure enough it was – Sarah Steele Nix backwards. So now she is beginning to read some AND spell words backwards. It is getting a little annoying because I have to think about it most of the time. Pots is stop backwards, God is dog backwards, and the list keeps growing. I have to admit…the name thing freaked me OUT because it was all in her head.
