Today, Kylie drew a picture of a person. It was a circle with eyes, nose and mouth. She added hair on top. She said, "He needs arms," and drew 2 arms. She said, "He needs legs," and drew 2 legs. Then, she said he needed shoes and drew two lines on the end of the legs.

I am working on some sight words with Kylie and she's able to pick out some words when I lay out a group of about 4 or 5 words. Hooray!

Okay, Kylie was extra funny today. Some of these may lose it in the translation, but here goes...

1) We started using M & M's to entice her to potty on the potty. She now sits on the potty all the time, crying because she cannot pee more to get M & M's. I think it has "clicked" now.
2) She wedged 2 tupperware containers on her feet today and said, "I got my slippers! Now I'm ready for the party!" I went and bought her some princess slippers and she put them on and said, "Now I'm ready to mambo!"
3) She ran out of her room tonight and said, "Mommy, come read me one more book, then you can go downstairs and watch TV."
4) As I left her room, she said, "My cougher!" I said, "What?" She said, "My cougher!!!" I said, "What???" She said, *sigh* "My blanket!!"

The other day, I said, "Why are you screaming your head off???" She reached up and grabbed her head and said seriously, "No, my head is still there."

It is a rainy night in Augusta and we really need it! Tomorrow we've got storytime at the library and I'm going to the gym. We might try our first movie at the theatre on Thursday!

Funny Stuff

We were sitting at breakfast this morning and Kylie said, "Cows eat milk." I said, "No, cows eat grass. They make milk." She said, "No, horses eat grass. Cows live in barns, like in "Click Clack Moo." Again, a literature reference! Love it!

We drove home from the gym and as we got into the driveway, she said very seriously, "We are home. My journey ends." She cracks me up!

Kylie is doing pretty well with her potty training. She has been out of diapers for 3 days now, and only 1 accident! She's still in diapers at night, but I don't think that really counts! Wish us luck in our quest for dry pants! :)

It's Been Awhile!'s been awhile since I updated this! We must have been busy, although I cannot think of what we have done! The best news is that Kylie now knows all her letters and letter sounds. She was holding a DVD the other day and sounded out her first word, "RAT." We've been focusing on the -at words lately. :) we went to playgroup and the host had lots of pools and sprinklers set out. Kylie was playing with an inflatable palm tree. Another child tried to take it from her and she cried, "No!!! Don't take my Chicka Chicka Boom Boom!" All the children's book aficionados will appreciate that!

We have also been attending storytime at the library every week. Kylie sits right up front. When we play, "Ring Around the Rosy," she gets very upset that the teacher changes the words, "Ashes, ashes, we all fall down," to "Tissue, tissue, we all fall down." "No!!!! That's not right!" she screams. I have to agree with her. Their version stinks!
