A couple of weeks ago, we woke up to find his and hers signs on our respective nightstands. Usually, the little princess serenades us with her morning desires, but apparently we were sleeping so heavily that she felt the need to add signage.

Her spelling skills at the moment provide an interesting view of how we say words. I took a look at that, and then sounded out how we say 'breakfast' and realized it sounds closer to how she spelled it than how we say it.

A few days later we were reading a Max and Ruby book. Max didn't want cereal for breakfast, so he went to Grandma's house. Grandma had too much ice cream, so she and Max had ice cream. He took a scoop back for Ruby. When Ruby asked what it was, he replied "Breakfast!"

Hannah, reading along with us, looked at that and said sadly, "That's how you spell breakfast? I did it wrong!"

I told her that's how we learn, and reading helps us learn how to spell.

The next morning we received this note on our nightstands:

Greatly improved.
