Here's Your Sign

While approaching a stop sign today, our 3 1/2 year old practiced his emerging reading skills. He carefully spelled out "P.O.T.S." and then exclaimed "STOP!"

Maybe we should start with Hebrew instead of English.

Was he looking in the rear view mirror and got confused? I had a similar occurrence with my 4 year old. He saw a billboard that read GLOW that was outlined and looked neon. His older sister told him a few days earlier that it spells "glow." He knows his letters but doesn't quite know how to blend them together. So he too slowly says the letters G-L-O-W...that spells bright. Well, ok, so he's not so BRIGHT yet. He's a third born.

Nope- not looking in the rearview mirror....just reading right to left. (He tries to write that way too sometimes!) G-L-0-W - that's funny :)
