    My 4.5 just started doing the how-to-draw books Independantly.  Before that I modeled on my page while he worked on his.  This train and these dragons he copied alone.

    That is so cool.

    DD3 was in her room playing with her imaginary pet lizard "Geese" (not to be confused with her imaginary ghost friends, Meesum and Geesum.) From across the hall I heard her frantic theatrics as an (imaginary) owl had come and snatched the poor little guy.

    Then I heard her say something like, "Geese, if you can answer three of my questions right, I will let you go," in a deep owl voice.

    She asked the very clever Geese:

    Which states begin with the letter A?
    What is 2 plus 2? and
    Which planet's rings are made of ice?

    I have no idea where she got this idea from, and was floored by how well she formed her questions! Geese was spared.

    Ellemenope...that's adorable. Lucky geese.

    New here and eager to share things that we normally keep to ourselves. My DS5 is away with his grandparents (sniff). I got him a notebook and special pen for doodling during the plane ride. My inlaws tell me that he is creating a trip journal and writing about all his 'discoveries' complete with illustrations in it instead. Go figure.

    My DD2 has been successfully potty-training for 3 days! She is also waking up dry from nap and nighttime.

    Anitdote to a tough day: this is more of a revealing anecdote than a brag.

    2 mos ago, DS3y "failed" his level one swim class, (really because he is very young for it, it's for 3-5 yr olds, they are expected to be able to pass level 3 by the time they have their 6th birthday) but they gave out report cards with checks and x's, and I pointed out to him that he could actually do many of the x'd things a year ago. He was taken aback or something, and wanted to go back in the pool and rectify the situation immediately.

    This morning, he got his "report card" from the next set of classes. He passed level two (despite being enrolled in level one), with every single point met. This is particularly shocking, because I am VERY sure I did not know he could do half of that stuff.

    We've had them in the water since they were 4 mos old, becasue with DS1 it was one of the only times he'd stop crying! When we switched pools, I was a little annoyed to encounter report cards, alas, the other was destroyed by fire.

    -Mich.

    Not a brag but this tickled us: DD8 was at a recent check-up and the pediatrician asked her what books she likes to read. After a thoughtful pause, she said, "Pretty much every genre but horror."

    Last week, Dh was reading a science article on his phone when DS2 ran up to him. Dh tried to shut the phone off quickly and DS2 yelled, "Hey! I wanted to read that science thing!" There were not any contextual clues for him to gather that it was a science article. Then yesterday, DD4 is laboring through her BOB book and DS2 runs up behind her, reads the sentence she is struggling with and then hops away giggling. DD was so focused that she didn't even notice him. We just started the BOB books this week (I just learned of them last week)and I am hoping that DD will be fluently reading before she figures out her little brother is reading.
