Overheard...


This morning, Wee Three was perusing a book of nursery rhymes at the breakfast table, whilst waiting for her peanut-butter-on-toast to arrive in front of her.

While she is making progress on the reading front, I have found that giving her books of stories and poems that she is already familiar with can often be a good "spring-board" for getting her to de-code new words by herself.

Today, however, "Jack and Jill" took a slightly different turn than usual:


Wee Three: (enthusiastically) Jack and Jill went up the hill,
To fetch a pail of water!!
Jack fell down, and broke his crown...

AND JILL JUST COULDN'T STOP LAUGHING.


I like to think she gets this from me.

I like here style ... and YES, she MOST definitely gets it from YOU.

In fact I can remember you saying something vaguely similar ...

It's only natural to laugh when someone falls. ;)

LOL I like her version better than the real one!

Too funny! And I love your daughter looking for easter eggs with the binoculars! We are having a sugar crash here today.

Sense of humour is definitely genetic. Today Chas was trying to jump rope WHILE jumping on the pogo stick, and of course fell down and broke his crown spectacularly. Luckily HE thought it was hilarious!
