Last week, for obvious reasons, the theme at preschool was "All About Moms." Among other activities, the kids practiced tracing, writing, and coloring the letters in "Mom." Imagine my glee (as a teacher of reading, writing, and spelling) by Wednesday when Duncan could not only read but also spell Mom! Since he's pretty good with the alphabet and letter sounds, we also taught him Dad. Now he can spell three things: Mom, Dad, and Duncan! If he could only sit still for five minutes, I could probably teach him how to read.
