As Sophia grows older, she’s been indulging in more grown up pleasures, like reading:
Or rather, being read to,but when she’s in the mood she reads along at bits of it that she remembers and when she hands us a book she’ll recite bits of it that she remembers, like “almost spring” when she hands us a book of the same title. And IF she thinks we’re not looking she may even read bits of it aloud. On sunday she turned to the first page of the book “moo, baa, la la la” and read “cow… moo!”
Another grown up interest is helping with household chores. Sweeping with the magic mop is of course one that has been mentioned a few times but a new one is picking out vegetables with grandma. Of course, she typically tears it into very small pieces like she did when she was feeding the baby turtles. May have been our fault since we taught her to break up the veges like that for the turtles and still haven’t quite been able to explain to her that we’re many times bigger than those turtles so can handle much bigger pieces.
